This is looking good. Did they give any indication of when this *might* start construction?

Thanks for the video AB and the photo Sawtooth!

They said one year of project development, construction drawings and city review process with the intention to break ground next fall. It would then have a 18 month construction schedule. They stressed that the proposal as is, is the ideal version of the project, subject to change due to feasibility, finances, market etc.

Large new Micron building

This isn't tall, but it is huge - almost as big as the new Simplot HQ.

And a rendering of the new slightly urban (but not really) Downtown CVS

This one is fairly amusing to put it lightly. That little strip mall where CVS is proposed is only about 8 or 9 years old. Before that it was a Chevron and the owner was one of the nimbys protesting the CUB Interchange which could have dramatically improved the whole neighborhood by better accommodating pedestrians.

Sorry for the repost but here's what could have been at the Capitol, University, Boise intersection.

In my opinion the existing building looks better when compared to the rendering for the pharmacy. Hopefully Tree City Juice & Smoothie Cafe relocates somewhere else in the downtown area.

Pizza Hut has vacated their sit down restaurants and are now only in small take out locations. Maybe that old Hut next door will be repurposed into a new restaurant or torn down?

Very nice article! I work in B36 out at Micron and this has been rumored for quite some time now. Much needed as they are cramming people in every nook and cranny out there (they have 3 modular trailers with people in the parking lot if that tells you anything).

Thanks for posting that 1420 West Front project.

Realtor: "Site and Building are Adaptable to Many Uses: Retail/Flex, Restaurant/Brew Pub, Nightclub or Event/Performing Arts Center"

Developer/buyer: It's a tear down. "The project repurposes an old dilapidated warehouse on the corner of 15th Street and Front Street."

Synopsis: We don't know what the actual selling price was but the asking price was $51/sqft, or about $2,230,000 per acre. Wow.

It appears the total sq footage of living space will be 17,600sf. Land cost $600k, construction cost 3,520,000 at $200/sqft estimate, totaling over $4,000,000 for 8 units. So, um, $500,000+ per unit ($232sf not including profit) to live right next to the Connector and Skate Park? Yeah, wow.

Hmm, when I read "re-purpose" i thought they implied reuse... guess we have different definitions...

Edit.
They have new permit in with the city
http://pdsonline.cityofboise.org/pds...id=CUP17-00049
There is also a demolition permit.
http://pdsonline.cityofboise.org/pds...id=BLD17-02327

But also found this on their original conditional use permit... Notice how it mentions convert... not demolish...

Yeah I noticed that "repurpose" and snickered because it's gone now. But notice that the CUP was from 2016. I wonder how and when they changed their minds and how those conversations with P&Z went.

On the new application the letter of intent says that by removing all of the interior walls, they found that the exterior walls were no longer structurally sound... and therefore will "construct an exact duplicate wall" in its place.

^ Good. That crappy little warehouse had no redeeming qualities. That the developers had to likely find these loopholes to replace it shows how bad red tape regulations can be on redevelopment.

I'm glad to see 8 more units go in! I wonder what the pricing will be, considering that it's adjacent to the Connector...

BoiseCynic broke it down in some previous posts (estimating 500K+ per unit), which seems more expensive than anyone would ever want to pay to live in that location, but we'll see. Hoping we don't get left with a demolition and no building.
