535 15th – River Street Lofts
Energreen Development Company, LLC, a housing development firm based out of McCall, Idaho, is constructing a 10-unit, for sale condo project located at 535 S. 15th Street in the River Myrtle-Old Boise Urban Renewal District. Two vacant single family homes were previously on the site, and have been torn down for construction of a denser, more urban scale housing development. The project will be townhome style, with two 5-unit buildings. Each unit has approximately 1,300 SF of living space and a 2-car garage on the ground level.
The River Street Lofts are scheduled to begin construction in summer of 2017 with an estimated completion of December 2017. The construction of the condos will be done with insulated concrete forms (ICF), making the structures extremely energy efficient. On average ICF construction increases energy efficiency 35% in comparison to a regular “Energy Star Rated” home.
CCDC Board has approved a Type 1 Participation Program Agreement with the Developer for reimbursement of up to $150,000 for public improvement expenses constructed in the right-of-way. The project’s public improvements include sidewalks, street trees, historic streetlights, benches, irrigation, and utility line relocation and undergrounding on River Street. These eligible expenses will be included in the request for reimbursement after the project is complete.
Laura Williams is the Project Manager for CCDC.
