We've received quite a few questions about the construction happening at 5th Street and Idaho Street in Downtown Boise.
A former parking lot and mortuary are currently a hub of activity as construction crews work on a new structure.
So what's going up?
A five-story apartment and retail building is under construction - plus a small pocket park.
5th & Idaho LLC is behind the project - a group of developers that includes Clay Carley, Dean Pape, Tim Gibson and Peter Oliver.
Here's what they plan:
- Eighty apartment units ranging in size from 542 square feet to 1,246 square feet. Six of the apartments will be walkup style - three along 5th St. and three along the alley near Ochos. Those six will have two levels, with a loft above the ground level.
- A 3,040 square foot retail space for a tenant to be announced.
- A rooftop deck overlooking the pocket park.
- Parking for 73 cars.
- An amenity room for residents on the top level.
The building should open next year.
