First 41 townhomes up, 39 more on the way in Garden City's Parkway Station.

Byline: Teya Vitu

The first 41 townhomes of the 80-home Parkway Station mixed-use development are due to be finished by the end of May in Garden City just off Veterans Parkway. Parkway Station, centered at Adams and 42nd Street, will also have 45,000 square feet of commercial/office and 6,000 square feet of multi-family housing in the -acre project, said Bryan Forrester, president of Urban Concepts, a division of Keller Willams Realty Boise. Project developer RADIX Construction of Nampa chose not to market the homes or take reservations until the March 24 grand opening. The homes are priced from $320,000 to $360,000, said Forrester, the sales and marketing director on the residential side. Thirty-two homes will have three bedrooms, three bathrooms and two-car garages. Nine 1,400-square-foot, two-bedroom cottages are also available. The first phase of townhomes will come in two eight-plex structures and four four-plexes. Forrester said site work has started on the second set of 39 townhomes, which are expected to be complete in 2019. The -acre project is being developed on what was a mostly vacant mobile home park. The architect is Hutchison Smith Architects of Boise. RADIX is the general contractor. Parkway Station wraps around the Boys & Girls Club of Ada County, the pending Future Public School charter school and Riverfront Park and is close to the Boise River Greenbelt. The existing Anser Public Charter School, Grazmick Produce and Wildflour Bakery are also nearby. The Parkway developments are exactly in line with the community's vision for this area, said Jena Thornborrow, Garden City's development services director. The existing neighborhood already includes some great amenities. Once the Parkway developments are completed, the Adams and 42nd Street area will be a Garden City hub infused with a strong sense of place. Garden City presently has 233 single-family/live-work lots and five lots with 96 apartments in 11 developments in various stages of development. The ground is being cleared at 42nd and Veterans Parkway for a 45,000-square-foot commercial building that will likely be four stories and will also include 6,000 square feet of apartments above street-level retail, Forrester said. Separately, at 42nd and Adams, a successful, local company is opening a second coffee shop in two shipping containers with drive-up and sit-down service. An e-bike shop is planned next door to the caf, he said. The commercial components are expected to be completed in fall. We're looking at adding to the assets that Garden City is building up in the arts and culinary and environmental, Forrester said. This project will provide market-rate housing with a caf and potential farmers market all just steps away.   Current Garden City housing developments include: Flourish, 45th and Adams streets: 20 buildable residential lots Garden Phoenix, Adams Street: eight buildable residential lots Creation Row, south of Adams and Field Street: 31 buildable residential lots Castle Gourdon Apartments, 53rd Street: five lots with 96 apartments 40th Street Cottages, Adams Street: nine buildable residential lots Adams Cottages, 43rd and Adams streets: 15 buildable residential lots Bridge Townhomes, 35th Street and Prospect Way: three commercial, three live-work, 11 single-family Bridge Townhomes 2, 35th Street and Prospect Way: 16 single family lots Parkway Station, 42nd and Adams streets: 41 buildable residential lots; 1 commercial lot Parkway Station 2, 42nd and Adams Streets: 53 buildable residential lots 36 Oak, 36th Street: 26 live work/single-family lots Source: city of Garden City.
