The Prospect: A New, Sustainable, Work-Force Housing Coming to This Unique Boise Neighborhood

Behind the Century Landmark Center, anchored by Lowes and Walmart and located on West Overland Road, a longtime Boise motel is being converted into affordable studio apartments. Recognizing the pressing need to address the low supply of affordable housing in the Boise City area, Fortify Holdings purchased the former Howard Johnson by Wyndham with the vision to provide a solution. This new efficiency studio apartment complex, close to the Cole freeway entrances, will become The Prospect.

Details About The Prospect

The entire property is around 28,000 square feet and will offer 88 different units. A sound wall and pine trees will be erected around the facility to dampen the noise of the nearby interstate.

Residents can expect the newly renovated rooms to offer:

  • Three size options, including 25’x12’, 21’x12’, or 17’x12’
  • Space for a bed and couch
  • A partial partition
  • A kitchenette with two burners
  • A modestly-sized refrigerator
  • An on-site laundry facility

An Affordable, Eco-Friendly Housing Solution for Boise Residents

Workers of the nearby Boise Spectrum, Walmart, Lowes, or possibly the Nampa Amazon warehouse can enjoy a low-maintenance place to live and rest in a location that makes it easy to get anywhere in the Treasure Valley. In their free time, renters can enjoy the pool, BBQ’s and picnicking stations. Additionally, the former hotel lobby is in talks to be converted to a fitness center. 

Motivated by his sustainable and eco-friendly design background, architect Erik Hagen worked closely with Fortify Holdings to make this housing project an example of environmental construction. By converting the former hotel into an apartment complex, they reused an existing structure and limited consuming extra resources. They plan to outfit the complex with green fixtures, proper trash and recycling receptacles, and bike parking.

These efficiency apartments are expected to be available to rent as soon as August. 

Here are some images from previous apartment renovations constructed by Fortify Holdings that show what future renters can expect from The Prospect complex.

Stay tuned for The Prospect website and listings to become available on TotallyBoise.com and @totallyboise on Twitter.
