News Update on CCDC Projects in the Shoreline URD


17th Street Reinvestment Study: CCDC prepared a neighborhood level study for the western portion of the Shoreline URD generally bounded by the I-184 Connector, Americana Boulevard and the Boise River.  The objective of this project was to identify opportunities for public investment by CCDC and partner agencies, which will spur private investment in the study area.  The Project Team delivered the final report at the end of August 2021.  Project Lead: Zach Piepmeyer



Update on CCDC Projects in the Gateway East URD

Economic Development

9100 S. Eisenman Road – PP Type 2:  R.L.R. Investments, LLC has built a new regional hub with an estimated total cost of $9.8 million, which includes three industrial structures totaling over 70,000 sq. ft. The CCDC Board approved the Type 2 agreement at its June 2020 meeting.  The project included approximately $385,000 in eligible expenses. Construction is complete, and the developers are pursuing a certificate of occupancy and preparing cost documentation.  Project Lead: Alexandra Monjar

2155 E. Freight Street – Boise Gateway 2 – PP Type 2: Boise Gateway 2 will be a 287,000 sq. ft. retail sort station for online order fulfillment. This project is the second phase of the 140-acre Boise Gateway Industrial Park. Estimated total project value is $53.9M with approximately $580,000 in eligible expenses. The Board designated this project in February 2021 and approved the Agreement in August 2021. Construction is complete and the developer is preparing cost documentation. Project Lead: Alexandra Monjar

10026 S. Eisenman Road – Mr. Gas 21 – PP Type 2: Lynch Land Development has built Mr. Gas’ first Boise location off the Eisenman exit of I-84. The project will include amenities for professional drivers and recreational users. Total estimated development costs are approximately $12.9 million with just over $1 million spent on public improvements to extend water and sewer main lines and install a sidewalk and streetlights. CCDC estimates it will be able to reimburse $480,000 of these costs through the Type 2 agreement approved March 2021. The Agency is in discussion with the developer to begin their cost documentation.  Project Lead: Alexandra Monjar

1001 E. Gowen Road – AZEK – PP Type 2: Decking manufacturer AZEK is investing over $123 million to retrofit the old Shopko building, including $1.4M in eligible expenses to expand power infrastructure and four streetlights to create its flagship location in the American West. The company anticipates creating 160 new permanent jobs with a median salary of $80,000. The Board designated this project for Type 2 participation in August 2021 and construction began later that month with full operation expected in March 2022. The Agency is finalizing the agreement, which includes coordination with Idaho Power regarding their refund program for the power substation. Project Lead: Alexandra Monjar 




Gowen Road – ACHD Cost Share – PP Type 4:  This is a cost-share project with an ACHD bridge replacement project on Gowen Road at the railroad crossing.  CCDC-funded improvements include installation of a fiber-optic conduit bank between Exchange Street and Eisenman Road, a wider sidewalk on the approaches to the bridge, and a longer bridge span, which will accommodate a future Rail-with-Trail pathway under the bridge.  Construction of the improvements is underway and expected to be complete during winter/spring 2022.    Project Lead: Zach Piepmeyer

Eisenman Road Interim Improvements, Blue Sage Lane to Blue Valley Lane:  The southern end of Eisenman Road is currently a two-lane rural roadway with no pedestrian or bike facilities.  While a future project is anticipated in the ACHD CIP between 2036 and 2040 to widen Eisenman and will likely include permanent bike/ped facilities, residents of the Blue Valley Estates Mobile Home Park desire a safe option for pedestrian travel along the Eisenman frontage of the Park now, particularly for school-age children trying to access the only available school bus stop at the intersection of Eisenman Road and Blue Valley Lane.  CCDC is coordinating with the South Eisenman Neighborhood Association, Boise School District, Idaho Power, and City of Boise to identify potential interim pedestrian and overhead lighting improvements on the west side of Eisenman adjacent to the Park.  CCDC has contracted with Civil Survey Consultants on an initial task order to analyze three different alternative opportunities to improve conditions: two alternatives seek to provide interim pedestrian facilities and the third will provide infrastructure, which would allow Boise School District to modify current school bus routing and better serve the Park.  CCDC intends to select a preferred alternative in January 2022.  Project Lead:  Zach Piepmeyer




Production Street and Gowen Road Utilities: This project will install new fiber optic conduit banks and associated vaults along Production Street and Gowen Road for the City to enhance data connectivity within city limits. CCDC Board approved contract award to Track Utilities LLC at the September Board meeting. Track Utilities started construction November 2 and anticipates being complete by January 2022.  Project Lead: Amy Fimbel
