BVA applies to build first retail sites at former Farmstead site


Ball Ventures Ahlquist asked the City of Meridian for approval of several retail buildings on its Eagle View Landing site.

The mixed-use development at the corner of Eagle Rd. and I-84 will feature a new headquarters for Idaho Central Credit Union. Construction on an office building for Americor started last year. A possible ‘golf entertainment venue’ like Topgolf sits in the NE corner, as well as medical and a possible hotel site.

“The retail development… is designed to promote life and pedestrian activity at the heart of the development,” Roberta Stewart with BVA wrote in an application letter. “It will have that small-town feel and will bustle with the energy of a typical main street in any vibrant little town.”

Two retail buildings measure just under 11,000 square feet are planned. The application does not indicate what tenants might take up space in the project, but renderings show generic restaurant-type uses.

The buildings feature a mix of grays and wood tones, as well as metal and glass accents. The plan shows several outdoor patios and a tree-lined walking path through the area. This portion of the development includes parking for 194 cars and ten bicycles.

More retail could join the latest buildings in the future.
