Glass company plans large warehouse on Franklin in Boise

A California-based glass company plans to build and occupy a portion of a large new warehouse building in Boise.

Mygrant Living Trust applied to build a 109,000 square foot building at 12450 Franklin Rd. in Boise, just west of Cloverdale Rd.

The Mygrant Glass building would include space for up to four tenants, including Mygrant Glass, and three others. The project would sit on the former site of an HVAC company with a large empty yard space. Several parcels would change configuration under the proposal, allowing for a future development along Franklin Rd.

“The existing structures on this parcel will be demolished to make way for the new construction except for an existing cell tower in the northwest corner which will remain,” Wesley Baker with Babcock Design wrote in an application letter. “The two parcels fronting Franklin Rd. will be reconfigured to provide a larger parcel for a future development.”

The building would reach 44′ feet tall and include loading docks and parking for 103 vehicles. Space for 55 vehicles is required. The plan also calls for six bicycle spaces.

Mygrant Glass, headquartered in Hayward, CA owns glass warehouses across the country. Mygrant provides glass to retail outlets on a wholesale basis.

The project will need design review approval from the City of Boise. A hearing is set for March 10th at 6pm.
