2618 W. Fairview Ave. – LOCAL Fairview – PP Type 2: Subtext is constructing this seven-story 271-unit, mixed-use project. The development will have approximately 8,500 square feet of ground floor commercial and the existing Capri Restaurant on site to be retained and incorporated into the design. The public improvements eligible for CCDC reimbursement include streetscapes along Fairview Avenue and 27th Street. Utility upgrades and expansion work includes upgrading and undergrounding power, new underground fiber and phone lines, and the expansion of the sewer mainline.

 2216 W. Fairview Ave. – New Path 2 – PP Type 3: New Path 2 is a permanent supportive housing development comprised of 96 multi-family units and space for ancillary support services. This project is being developed by Pacific West Communities, Inc. with Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) and support from the city. This development will provide affordable housing for individuals and couples who are homeless or facing homelessness and earning less than 60% of the area median income for Ada County, though residents will likely be earning substantially below this. There is an estimated $250,000 in eligible expenses for streetscape and public utility upgrades. The Board designated the project for Type 3 Transformative Assistance participation in May. The Agency plans to bring a final agreement to the Board in late summer. Project Lead: Kevin Holmes


West End Water Renewal Infrastructure- PP Type 4: The City of Boise is undertaking the construction of a new lift station and pressure discharge pipe needed to serve multiple incoming mixed-use developments in the 27th Street and Fairview Avenue area. These improvements will provide the backbone to replace miles of substandard gravity sewer lines as further development happens at the western end of the 30th Street District. The city has requested a 50/50 cost share for funding this important project and CCDC has committed approximately $1.6 million. The Board approved the final agreement in April and construction has already begun on the lift station site. Project Lead: Kevin Holmes
