Afton Condos breaks ground on second phase


Work on the second phase of the Afton Condos in Downtown Boise at 9th St. and River St. is underway, after a groundbreaking earlier this month.

Now the race to lease up the condos is on.

"As Boise continues its rapid growth, downtown living is becoming increasingly sought after. When Phase 1 reservations opened in August 2015 we filled them much more quickly than planned. Downtown living is still rare in Boise, but The Afton’s location is attractive to those that want the best of urban living," Julie Oliver and Liz O’ Gara with The Afton said in a prepared statement.

The new phase is set to have 35 condominiums right next to the existing building, which opened in June of last year.

The latest phase of the Afton will include one, two and three-bedroom homes across five stories. The building should be complete in 2019.
