Neighbors told apartments will spring up on old Maverik site near BSU

The Land Group will hold a meeting with neighbors Thursday ahead of a planned application for an apartment complex at the corner of Protest Rd. and Boise Ave.

The site currently includes the closed Maverik station and a series of small one-story apartment buildings. The Vernon K. Brassey Family Partnership own the parcels, according to property records.

A map provided to neighbors shows the existing Big Jud’s restaurant on the site remaining intact.

According to Apartments.com, one of the current apartments on the site, a 650 square foot one bedroom, one bath unit runs $750 per month. RentCafe data shows that’s nearly 37% less than the current average rental price in Boise.

Developers have not yet filed the project with the City of Boise, which cannot occur until after the neighborhood meeting is held. Neighbors are circulating a flier urging action against the project – and say they’ve been told the development will include 198 units with 526 bedrooms.

The neighborhood meeting is set for Thursday, October 10, 2019 from 6-8pm at the Holiday Inn Express at 475 W. Parkcenter Blvd. in Boise.
