The third and fourth floors would have eight rooms apiece, each with space for two beds, as well as a single living unit for a residential advisor on each floor.
Each floor would have a shared bathroom with showers.
The floors beneath the student housing would have office and retail space.
That's what Rick Neser has planned for a four-story, 16,581-square-foot building on a .64-acre lot at the southwest corner of 13th and River streets. The developer brought his plan before the city of Boise's Design Review Committee last week and encountered no opposition to it, city planner Andrea Tuning said.
Never miss a local story.
Neser's project enjoys a location that's within walking distance of Boise State University's campus and the city's Downtown core. Despite that, the surrounding area has seen decades of disinvestment, and city leaders are hoping for revitalization of the kind Neser is proposing.
Neser said he wants to complete the building in time for BSU's 2016 fall semester. Tuning said he's already started streetscape on the lot.
