The Franklin

The City of Boise is committed to doing everything we can to ensure a home for those who choose to call Boise home, at every budget. This includes investing in tools like the Housing Land Trust, which focuses on the development and preservation of affordable housing on land that is owned by the city.

The Franklin is a Housing Land Trust development, bringing much needed affordable housing to Boise. The city broke ground on the development in fall 2021, and the apartments are anticipated to be completed in 2024.

Located in the Central Bench neighborhood, The Franklin includes a variety of apartment types for a range of housing incomes, including:

  • 66 one-bedroom units
  • 118 two-bedroom apartments
  • 21 three-bedroom units

The majority of the units are affordable to those earning 60% or below area median income, which translates to an individual earning $31,680 a year or a family of three earning $40,680 or below.

The Franklin integrates into Franklin Park and includes a mixture of retail space. It provides a large childcare facility that can provide services for up to 80 children and serves infants up to pre-K.

The Franklin is managed by Olive West Properties. If you have any inquiries or questions about the application process, kindly contact Olive West Properties directly through their website.
