If all goes as proposed, the Boise real estate market could soon see 1,800 new homes and a new business campus in the undeveloped, sagebrush-covered area south of Boise’s city limits.
Construction would start in the Fall of 2007 and could take 12-14 years to be completed.
The residential portion of the development would utilize the urban village concept with a variety of smaller, pedestrian-oriented communities and neighborhood commercial areas.
The business campus would be similar to the El Dorado and Silverstone developments at Eagle/Overland Roads in Meridian.
The project is one of three requests for large annexations that will be discussed in hearings before the Boise Planning & Zoning Commission in October.
If the City of Boise approves the annexation, the developers will submit an application to develop the land as a master-planned community.
Depending upon the mix of housing offered, and pricing, this area could be very attractive to homebuyers who work at Micron or downtown due to the relatively easy commute.
