News Update on CCDC Projects in the 30th Street URD
Formed in December 2012, the 30th Street URD runs along 27th Street, Whitewater Park Boulevard and encompasses the West Main Street and Fairview Avenue corridor.
2403 Fairview Ave – Adare Manor – PP Type 2, 4: Northwest Integrity Housing Company’s affordable housing development is under construction with completion anticipated by the end of 2019. The combined participation agreement is for approximately $730,000 for public improvements adjacent to the development including streetscapes and utility work. This development is on ground leased from the City of Boise for forty years and was awarded to the developer through a competitive process. It includes 134 for-rent apartments. The majority will be for families earning less than 60% of the area median income or about $44,000 per year for a family of four with approximately 10% serving market rate rents.
301 29th St – Whittier Elementary School – PP Type 4: Construction at Whittier Elementary is almost complete and the contractors plan to wrap up by early September. CCDC is working with Whittier on cost documentation required for reimbursement for Eligible Expenses per the Type 4 Agreement. Reimbursement will not exceed $540,000 for streetscapes, utilities, road reconstruction, and a public plaza space.
30th Street District – Urban Renewal Plan Amendment: In the event Agency financing is involved in the development of a sports park, and it is located in the 30th Street District, it is likely that an amendment to the 30th Street Urban Renewal Plan will be necessary. The Agency is working with legal counsel and consultants to obtain appropriate scope of services and timeline.
