Conger Development’s Moxie Ridge will add 121 homes just south of Amity Rd. off of Holcomb Rd. The project will add houses on two levels separated by the ridgeline. It fills in a 24.19-acre site. It is surrounded to the south and west by industrial uses, to the east by 1990s era Columbia Village homes, and to the north by an Idaho Power corridor.

The homes are built and designed by Blackrock Homes, known for its work in the Harris Ranch and East Valley developments. The houses will be smaller than typical for Blackrock or recent area trends for new construction. The home plans include models on one and two stories. The sizes range from 1,292 square feet to 2,015 square feet in size.

Amenities include a small playground area, as well as a basketball court and soccer field.

The project sits within the Boise Airport influence area and can be affected by “traffic patterns below 1000 feet.”

“These homes are intended to fill the huge buyer demand for well designed, high quality, low maintenance and affordable housing in Boise,” Jim Conger with Conger Development wrote. “The housing products provided in the Moxie Ridge Neighborhood will have a variety of price points and will be a great addition to the City of Boise. We anticipate that home prices in this development will begin in the upper $200,000 price range.”

It’s important to note Conger’s letter is dated February of 2018 and home values, in general, have increased in Boise. Formal pricing information is not yet available.

Moxie Ridge first won approval in May, 2018 despite some testimony from neighbors in opposition.

The project should start offering homes this fall.
