While lanes of traffic are blocked on Front, Myrtle and Main streets; construction fencing encloses the Grove Plaza and JUMP; and two new boutique hotels are planned for Capitol Boulevard, Boise Mayor Dave Bieter welcomed the construction of yet another development downtown: One Nineteen.

Developers celebrated a groundbreaking at the corner of 10th and Grove streets on April 2, preparing the way for 26 two- and three-bedroom "contemporary urban" residences ranging from $300,000 to $900,000.

Designed by Boise-based CSHQA Architects, One Nineteen's upscale living spaces will feature ceilings reaching from 10 to 18 feet, high-efficiency contemporary fixtures, European-inspired kitchens with solid surface countertops, Energy Star stainless steel appliances, high-efficiency windows and urban loft-style concrete floors. Each unit will be built with sustainable materials and low-volatile organic compound paints and finishes. 

Residences also include outdoor decks, a two-level garage with storage and secure bike storage.

Boise-based CSDI Construction is building the $9.5 million project, which is expected to be completed by the spring of 2016. 

"One Nineteen is a beautiful addition to downtown Boise; exactly what we're looking for, given the city's focus on creating more residential opportunities," Bieter said at the groundbreaking ceremony. "As part of that effort, the city has a goal of creating 1,000 housing units in the downtown area by 2020. This project is a great example of how we're working to make Boise the most livable city in the country."
