The Eagle City Council on Tuesday will consider an application to build 51 homes and 250 apartments on 75 acres of a former gravel extraction site next to the Boise River near the southwest corner of Idaho 44 and Idaho 55.

If approved, Eagle Lakes would be Eagle’s second largest apartment complex. In 2014, the city approved the 22-acre 300-apartment Bel Air subdivision at the southwest corner of Old Valley and Linder roads. Construction has not yet begun on the project.

The project includes “luxury” homes and apartments in a “live work play” environment situated around two lakes, according the application submitted by the developer, Eagle-based Pacific Partners Residential. About 50 percent of the site will remain open space.

The project also includes 12 commercial lots south of E. Riverside Avenue. Commercial uses and tenants have not been identified according to the application.

The Eagle Planning and Zoning Commission on Sept. 21 unanimously voted to recommend approval of the project. Tuesday’s hearing begins at 6:30 p.m. at Eagle City Hall, 660 E. Civic Lane.

The developer could not be reached for comment Monday.
