Apartments planned on site earmarked for self storage

A site rezoned for a self-storage project in 2017 – could change course.

The Boise City Council approved rezoning of a 5.16-acre parcel on Maple Grove near Emerald Street in 2017. Now, a new developer wants to change the zoning back.

The land, owned by the Winston Moore family, won approval of rezoning from commercial to M-1 – otherwise known as light industrial. The plan at the time, according to applications, was to build self-storage units.

The project never materialized. Now, a new developer, Utah’s Fig Village Parkside, asked to put the zoning back to its previous neighborhood commercial zoning.

Documents indicate Fig Village plans a 108-unit apartment complex. The application is missing information on the number of bedrooms each unit would feature. Boise requires 145 parking spaces for this project configuration, and the developer proposes 196. The city requires 108 bike spaces – which matches the proposal.

Amenities would include a clubhouse, pool, dog park and ‘tot playground.’

Renderings and site plans for the project are not yet available.
