Collegiate Development Group hopes to develop a 243-apartment project on land currently owned by Winco Foods in Downtown Boise. The City of Boise approved a rezone for the project and required the developer to sign a development agreement last June.

The city generally requires the developer record the development agreement within a year of approval, but reps for CDG asked for more time.

“(Due) to the current COVID-19 circumstances, CDG needs additional time to acquire the property before it can record the Development Agreement,” Deborah Nelson with Givens Pursley wrote to the city last week.

CDG asked for an extension on the agreement until June of 2021.

If built, the CDG project would add apartments, parking and retail to a lot currently used by Winco for employee parking near its downtown store. The lot sits behind Whole Foods on Myrtle St. at Ave. B.
