Intent to Award
The City of Boise is pleased to announce an Intent to Award J Fisher Companies as the development team for Franklin and Orchard, an affordable housing development in a Community Activity Center. Based on feedback from the review committees, the city will be holding further conversations about the proposal submitted. Upon completion of these, a formal Memorandum of Agreement will be executed between J Fisher and the City of Boise.
The project will feature a mix of housing types for a range of household incomes and is intended to grow with the neighborhood for future use as a Community Activity Center. The housing types proposed include one to three-bedroom multi-family units (ranging from 500-1150 square feet) and townhomes. Designed to integrate into Franklin Park, unique community gathering spaces are woven throughout the development to bring the Central Bench residents together. An anchor building will sit on the corner of Franklin and Orchard to provide retail and multi-family rental units.
