12th and Idaho
120 N 12th Street

A Type 2 Participation Program Project that supports the mixed-use development through public utility and streetscape improvements.

About the Project

The 12th and Idaho project will replace a 24,000 square foot surface parking lot with a 420,000 square foot, 26-story mixed-use building to include 298 residences, ground floor retail space, and structured parking. The residential mix includes studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units to be rented at market rates. The project’s estimated total development costs are $140 million. The developer, 12th and Idaho LLC, plans to certify the project with Green Globes, a program with criteria that is similar to LEED certification administered by Green Building Initiative, Inc, and active in the US since 2004. 12th and Idaho Owner LLC is a joint venture between White Oak Realty Partners (“WORP”), Ponsky Capital Partners (“PCP”), and Boise-based Oppenheimer Development Corporation.

The 12th and Idaho project includes public improvements to the adjacent alley, stormwater infrastructure, construction of streetscapes and furnishings including bike racks, street trees and historic streetlights, and the replacement of a section of the Boise City Canal which runs under and adjacent to the project site.

12th and Idaho meets the requirements of the Participation Program as approved by the CCDC Board and promotes the objectives of the Westside District Plan. Type 2 projects are scored based on ten urban design categories to encourage compact development with pedestrian focused design. 12th & Idaho scored 148 points, qualifying as a Level A project.

Boise City Design Review granted its original conditional approval of the project in November 2021, with full approval granted in February 2022. The project design was subsequently reexamined and updated to ensure is viability and the modified design was approved by Boise City Design Review on August 25, 2022. Preliminary site work began in early November. If the Board designates this project for Type 2 participation, the Agency will request approval of a final agreement in February or March 2023. The project is expected to be complete in May 2025.
