New development would add homes, apartments – and provide a new east-west link in Meridian

A new development in Meridian will bring addiitional homes and apartments to the area – and will also provide a key east-west link along Pine Ave.

Trilogy Development asked the City of Meridian for approval to build the Foxcroft Subdivision, west of Ten Mile Rd. at Pine Ave.

The project would add 216 apartments, and 76 single-family homes and make a number of other improvements in the area.

It would also complete Pine Ave., which currently dead ends on either side of the proposed subdivision – at Ten Mile Rd. and at Ash Pine Way. It will add an east-west link in Meridian from Black Cat all the way into Boise.

“This new development will include the construction of a much needed and long-awaited bridge over Ten Mile Creek and will complete Pine Avenue, a mid-mile collector, between Ten Mile Road and Block Cat Road,” Jane Suggs with Gem State Planning said in an application letter.

The project will also complete a link in the Ten Mile Pathway, along Ten Mile Creek. The path will connect to a future proposed path on the land under Meridian’s railroad tracks.

To the north of Pine, the new apartment project would bring 54 one-bedroom units and 162 two-bedroom units – for a total of 378 bedrooms. Trilogy proposes 429 parking spaces, more than the 415 required by the city.

The complex will feature a number of amenities, including a clubhouse with community room, fitness center, and a swimming pool.

To the west of the apartments, the plan calls for single family homes. More homes are also planned to the south of Pine. Several homes that already existing on the site will remain.

The project will feature a mix of home styles, including some with traditional garages in the front, and some with parking in the back.

Three phases

The project would roll out in three phases. First the single-family south of Pine Avenue, then the single-family developments north of Pine and lastly the apartments.

The project will also complete a link in the Ten Mile Pathway, along Ten Mile Creek. The path will connect to a future proposed path on the land under Meridian’s railroad tracks.

In a report submitted by city staff, they reccomend approximately 32 fewer apartments bringing the total units to 184 for zoning purposes. If this is done, the staff is asking that the applicant keep most of the parking space. As they are currently concerned about the low amount of extra parking space.

The applicant received feedback from the Meridian Planning and Zoning Commission at meetings earlier this year. The applicant asked for a continuance to the March 4, 2021 meeting in order to keep working on the feedback they have received.
