BOISE, Idaho — This article was written by Don Day with BoiseDev.

If you’ve visited the area near The Ram restaurant on Park Blvd. in Boise, you’ve probably noticed the large construction site.

Gardner Co. started construction on a new, large apartment complex and parking structure along the Boise River Greenbelt last year. The project, on land owned by the Harry W. Morrison Foundation, will add more than 236 new residential units to the site.

Project plans for Park Place Apartments show a mix of bedroom configurations, including one- and two-bedrooms. A pool, Greenbelt-side courtyard, large bike storage room and other amenities add to the overall project mix.

Gardner Co. scrapped an initial plan for a restaurant site and senior living apartments. They also increased the height of the building from four stories to five.

The Park Place Apartments project is one of several developed on ground owned by the Harry W. Morrison Foundation in recent years. Morrison co-founded of Boise engineering firm Morrison-Knudsen. The foundation and Gardner Co. also built Park Place Clinic a few blocks away in 2016, and the Morrison Foundation Building in 198.
