A new development will break ground later this month in boom Star. Crews will start turning dirt on Amazon Falls on Wednesday. The project (no relation to the ecommerce retailer) will bring a total of 184 housing units to Star, plus retail space.

The project, developed by First Service Group and owned by the Miller Family Trust of Eagle will bring 46 individual 4-plex units. While the units themselves will feature leases like apartments, each 4-plex is offered for sale as an investment property.

The project sits on State St. near Palmer Ln. – not too far from Highway 16. The 19.66 acre site will include 6 acres of 4-plex units and 13.6 acres of commercial space along State St.

Here’s how project marketers describe the development:

“The buildings are all the same design, each two-bedroom and two full baths. The design has been built many times in the valley by Dave Scaggs. It is the pinwheel design with entryway off each side of the building. The units are built on slab flooring and very energy-efficient heating system. Each unit comes with fire sprinklers. The units are all rent-ready when completed, with full appliance package, and complete landscaping.”

Amenities for the residential portion of the project include a pool, clubhouse, playground, covered parking, bike storage, and gazebos.
