Developer wants to build 300 apartments across from The Owyhee. Here’s what’s coming

·2 min read

A developer has proposed a project at 12th and Grove streets in downtown Boise at a fairly quiet intersection.

Alliance Residential Co. has proposed a seven-story apartment building at 1201 W. Grove St. The 390,163-square foot Saratoga Apartments buildings would be 75 feet tall.

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Alliance Residential is one of the largest residential real estate developers in the United States, having worked in development in 33 metropolitan areas across 17 states. It would become the latest out-of-state developer to make its mark in Boise.

Currently, the property is owned by Hendricks Commercial Properties, a Wisconsin company owned by billionaire Diane Hendricks. Hendricks also owns the three buildings that make up BoDo and The Owyhee apartments across the street from the proposed Saratoga Apartments.

If the city accepts the Saratoga Apartments project, Alliance Residential plans to move forward with its purchase of the property from Hendricks.

The ground floor would include a retail spaces with awning-covered streetside entrances.

According to city filings, Saratoga Apartments would have 305 market-rate apartments ranging in size from 495 square feet to 1,175 square feet, with 71 studio units, 174 one-bedroom units and 60 two-bedroom units. It would also have a parking garage on the first floor with 331 parking spaces.

The stucco-and-brick building would be mixed-use with commercial retail space on the ground level. The housing amenities plan includes lobby lounge spaces, a fitness center, club room, landscaped courtyard, pool and spa, fire pits and outdoor lounge spaces.

The Saratoga Apartments building would be built in one of the last undeveloped corners of downtown Boise.

To make room for it, three buildings would be demolished on the 1.7-acre property, according to city filings. Those buildings are home to Your Image Barber Styling and the Boise Creative Center. Much of the acreage is a parking lot that has been used by Treefort Music Festival in the past.

“Exterior finishes will be primarily brick masonry and stucco with vinyl windows and aluminum storefront for fenestration,” design documents state. “The detailing and overall composition is focused on a classical styling for the brickwork and brick detailing with modern touches in the use of stucco and fiber cement trim.”

“The frontage along Front Street will mirror the hotel development across the street with a raised concrete planter to provide a barrier between the road and pedestrians,” the company said in its letter of intent to the city.
