Storage Development, LLC wants to build a 125-unit complex on the former ParkCenter Swim & Racquet Club site along Loggers Creek.

BoiseDev first reported on the apartment project earlier this summer. Crunch Fitness initially proposed to remodel the gym for a new location, but later canceled those plans.

The project would include about 18 3-bedroom units, 56 2-bedroom apartments and 53 one-bedroom units. Developers initially proposed a total of 127 apartments but scaled it back to 125 to meet zoning requirements. The total number of bedrooms for the project is about 219.

Project designers asked for a height exception to go above the 45-foot limit for the zone. They propose to build up to 52 feet six-inches tall – about five feet shorter than initially proposed. The height overage will require an exemption from the City of Boise.

Zoning guidelines would require 184 parking spaces, but the developer is asking to build 148. They will need an exemption for a parking reduction. The City of Boise’s staff report notes that the project is on transit routes and could utilize off-site parking on Divison St. and Rossi St.

The unnamed apartment complex includes about 5,500 of commercial office space on the first floor at the corner of Division and Beacon St.

An amenity deck on the second floor acts as a courtyard with plantings, picnic tables, and pathways. Clubhouse-style features also would fill a portion of the second floor.

Boise’s Planning & Zoning Commission will hear the project on October 9, 2019 at Boise City Hall. It will go in front of Design Review on November 13, 2019.
