Hundreds of homes & medical facility planned near Chinden Blvd.

A large-scale project in northwest Meridian just submitted plans for the development of its first phase.

Meridian-based homebuilder Hubble Homes’ Prescott Ridge would sit on 127 acres on the south of W Chinden Blvd. and the east side of N McDermott Rd. The project would feature a 90-bed medical facility “geared toward women’s health and pediatrics”, 320 single-family homes, 63 townhomes, a multi-family area, and more than 10 acres of amenities.

The site is along a future freeway-style extension of Idaho Highway 16 which will eventually connect with I-84.

“The lot reserved for future multi-family development has been strategically placed at the northeast part of the site,” the application letter said. “The proposed location will provide a higher density of homes near the future school, and medical campus to provide housing opportunities for employees and families.”

The West Ada School District also owns a piece of land within the suture subdivision for a school.

Phase one

The first phase of the project entails building 108 single-family homes, a dog park, and a playground spread out over 27 acres, according to KM Engineering. The average building lot size is 5,862 square feet.

The project application also notes that various road constructions would be done.

“Primary access for this phase is via Rustic Oak Way from Chinden. The entirety of Rustic Oak will be constructed in the first phase of development to ensure a north-south connection to the subdivision to the south and access to the subdivision for emergency services,” the application letter said. “This phase will also include construction of local roadways stubbing to the south, east, and west, and connecting with McDermott Road to the west.”

The application letter said the project would be developed in nine phases over the course of four to five years.

KM Engineering is looking to get pre-plat approval from the City of Meridian.
