  • 60 State St

Presented by TOK

Larry Eld of Boise owns the 4.3-acre property at 9000 W. State St., across from McLeary’s Pub. Application materials submitted to the City of Boise ask to build 60 townhome-style apartments on the property. A total of nine buildings plus a clubhouse would sit on the site. Currently, two homes that date to 1940 are on the property.

The 60-apartment threshold would allow the developer, Kelly Kitchens of Caldwell, to minimize changes to State St.

“The Idaho Transportation Department has said a multi-family development with a maximum of 60 units will allow us to avoid drastic improvements to the State Street frontage,” Jay A. Gibbons with South, Beck and Baird Landscape Architecture wrote in an application letter. “There is an existing irrigation canal between the property and the roadway. Keeping the developable units at 60 means we won’t be required to tile the canal and add acceleration/deceleration lanes to/from our entry.”

The townhomes would include living space on the first floor, with bedrooms on the second floor. Developers plan 42 two-bedroom and 18 three-bedroom units, each between 1100 and 1200 square feet. The application also calls for a clubhouse with exercise room.

The City of Boise requires parking for 90 cars and 60 bikes. Kitchens proposes 113 car spots and 64 bike spots.

The property, part of a former farm, will need to rezoning approval to allow for the higher density.

The application for rezoning and planned unit development will need approval from Boise’s Planning & Zoning Commission. Hearing date: January 13th at 6pm at Boise City Hall.
