A new affordable housing project could come to the Boise Bench.
Pacific West Communities and Hawkins Companies submitted an application to bring 201 long-term affordable housing units to 6160 W Denton Street.
The building would stand five floors tall. The first floor would hold the parking and the four stories above would hold the apartment units. There is a planned 197 total parking spaces, including six ADA spots. Of the 201 units, there would be 50 studios, 80 one-bedrooms, 59 two-beds, and 12 three-bed units.
The project will be reserved for households earning from 30% to 80% of the area medium income with incomes averaging 60% AMI or less. The application said this depends on acquired funding.
Along with the parking, the ground floor will house a leasing office, a fitness area, a community room, indoor bike storage, and a mail room. There is also a 2,400 square foot space that was originally designated as office space. However, following a neighborhood meeting, the developer is trying to convert this into a daycare space. The second floor will also feature a courtyard with a playground, a barbeque, and a picnic area.
