Boise spa torn down. Apartments are planned in its place

Crews recently moved in and demolished the former Polish A Day Spa at 2408 S. Broadway Ave. in Boise. A small new apartment complex could be next.

The Polish building dated to 1920, in a former home converted to the spa use. A barn and single-family home were also torn down.

Beegawk LLC of Coeur d’Alene applied with the City of Boise to build a 35-unit apartment complex dubbed Veazy Apartments, as well as parking on the site.

A set of two three-story buildings would go up, adding a total of nine two-bedroom and 26 one-bedroom apartments to the site.

“The building materials utilized on this project will be in conformance with, as well as enhance, the surrounding residential neighborhood, with care being taken in their selection,” Ben Semple with Rodney Evans + Partners wrote in an application letter. “Materials will consist of a membrane roofing system, exterior wall treatments of fiber cement cladding, vertical wood/wood texture
cladding, and smooth sand finish E.F.I.S. stucco cladding. There will be powder-coated steel balconies and entry canopies on the structure to further enhance the articulation of the façade.”

The project will not have its own access to Broadway Ave., but instead would connect in the parking lot of the Pioneer Federal Credit Union building next door. The project would include 37 parking spaces for cars and both exterior and interior storage for bikes.

Another empty lot just to the south of the former Polish building is not part of the project, and there is no current application on the site. That lot is owned by Broadway Ave. Baptist Church, according to property records.

The City of Boise approved the project last fall.
