LEAP and indieDwell to bring new affordable duplexes to Nampa

Paddles Up Poke

New affordable housing is coming to Nampa. 

LEAP Housing Solutions and indieDwell, announced it would place six shipping containers on August 26 to start the building process for new duplexes. 

The project brings two duplexes to 2202 Aries Drive in Nampa. The duplexes will be made available to people who earn at or below 50 percent of the area median income. 

LEAP will build on an unused lot.

“Utilizing vacant lots is one of the more efficient opportunities to provide needed affordable housing to the community that can stay affordable in the long run,” LEAP Founder and Executive Director, Bart Cochran said. “Urban infill and affordable housing are priorities of the City of Nampa as well as LEAP, which led to the culmination of the Aries project.” 

The Duplexes have four-bedrooms and two-baths. But, LEAP‘S blog says there is potential for 14 people to live in the two units. 

This project is LEAP‘S third in the Treasure Valley. The first projects were Windy Court 1 and 2 in NW Boise. These LEAP houses have been able to be created through indieDwell and the Idaho Housing and Finance Association.  

The duplexes are expected to be move-in ready this fall. These are the first LEAP houses brought to Canyon County.
