You Asked: Why is CBH Homes building the Music Subdivision in SW Boise?

Some residents of Southwest Boise were surprised recently when a sign advertising CBH Homes popped up along Victory Road. 

In 2020, land development firm the Conger Group, led by Jim Conger, stood before Boise City Council with an application to develop a 20-acre parcel on Victory Road into 67 homes. The project was opposed by the nearby neighbors, both because of the potential impact on traffic to the semi-rural area on the city’s southwestern fringe and because of the loss of two unusually shaped homes built by twin sisters on the property.

Boise City Council voted to approve the project and allow Southpoint LLC, the entity apparently connected to Conger, to move ahead with development. But now, CBH Homes has taken the reins of the subdivision. 

“As per our usual process, the developer worked with the city to get the Music Subdivision project approved, developed, and then sold the lots to CBH Homes,” Marketing Content Leader for CBH Homes Cece Cheney told BoiseDev in an email. “We will be building per the city requirements. As a home builder this is our standard process for working with developers, and we do this all over the Valley.”

Few details available about transfer

Conger moved quickly to transfer the Music Subdivision to CBH Homes, Ada County property records show. 

Boise City Council approved the Music subdivision on August 26, 2020, and by September 4, 2020, an LLC run by Conger moved to transfer the deed of the property to an LLC controlled by Corey Barton. This LLC, called Endurance Holdings LLC, then transferred the deed for the development to Challenger Development, Inc in April of this year. Challenger Development is also run by Corey Barton, and by extension CBH Homes. 

Questions about the subdivision’s developments sent to the Conger Group via its website went unanswered and a phone call to Hethe Clarke, Conger’s lawyer on the project, was not returned. 

When asked if the plan from the outset was to transfer the subdivision to CBH for construction or if the plans for CBH to be the builder were shared with the public during the application process, Cheney provided few details. 

“We don’t track any of that, we’re just excited when we have new lots and communities to market and sell,” she wrote in an email to BoiseDev.
