Crews started work on new roads between Warm Springs Ave. and ParkCenter Blvd.

S. Honeycomb Way, S. Trailwood Way and S. Old Hickory Way will continue to the south, and a new Haystack St. will run between the three. Eventually, a full street grid in the former cow pasture will be built out.

Additional townhomes like those that line ParkCenter in Harris Ranch will line Honeycomb, Old Hickory and Trailwood.

Two three-story condo projects are also planned. The first, called The Taper at Harris Ranch, will bring 30 units in a three-story building facing the new Haystack St. The application from Zach Evans Construction indicates each condo would include a balcony or outdoor patio space.

Amenities include big storage, an Amazon hub, and a pet/bike wash area.

Parking for 38 cars is also planned on-site, many with carports. Another similar condo project called The Eno at Harris Ranch would sit across Honeycomb from The Taper.

The Eno and The Taper add the latest housing type to the Harris Ranch subdivision, a mixed-use project that has been developing in Barber Valley over the last 20 years.

The project passed the Harris Ranch Design Review process, and will next go to the City of Boise for approval.

Several future development projects are planned in Harris Ranch in the area of Taper & Eno – including a future grade school site, village green, and additional housing.
