‘Contemporary’ apartments could come to empty lot near Village at Meridian

More apartments could soon pop up near the Village at Meridian.

KM Engineering submitted an application to the City of Meridian for the Village Apartments at 2600 N Eagle Rd. near the already built Regency at River Valley and Verraso Village.

The Village Apartments would have 336 units spread across six buildings. There would be 200 one-bed apartments, 120 two-bed apartments, and 16 three-bedroom units available.

“The configuration and orientation of the proposed development will not only create easily accessible open space and amenities. But will also support the creation of a community in an area close to existing and proposed commercial and employment opportunities,” the application letter said. “The Village Apartments will complement surrounding residential and commercial uses, is consistent with the City’s goals for this area, and provides additional housing opportunities for this central area of Meridian.”

At the center of the development would be several amenities, including a clubhouse with a dog washing station, fitness center, bike repair, swimming pool, hot tub, and dog park. The apartments would also be within walking distance of Kleiner Park.

“The park’s amenities coupled with nearby restaurants, shopping, and commercial opportunities will provide future residents with a wide array of options for recreation and entertainment,” the application letter said.

Parking would consist of 604 total spaces, 336 of the spaces would be covered. There would also be seven garage buildings, the application letter said.

Original plan

The application letter said the 11-acre site was originally approved for 336 units across 11 buildings. The applicant is requesting a CUP modification to update, elevations, the site plan, and pedestrian connectivity.

“The building concepts for this site have been modified to accommodate a contemporary footprint with elevators, rather than the walk-up garden-style buildings originally contemplated,” the application letter said. “We believe this building style and the overall complex will complement adjacent development while bringing a modern and high-quality product to the area.”

The applicant has also updated the original site design.

“Units will be enclosed and accessible to residents, visitors, and emergency personnel when required, which will contribute to exclusivity and security for future residents,” the application letter said. “Elevators will provide convenience and an upgraded feature not available in most multi-family projects, especially for residents living on the fourth floor. Modulation, variation in color and material, and articulation of the building facade have been emphasized in the updated design.”
The City of Meridian has not set a hearing date for the Village Apartments.
