Yesterday, I shared that construction crews poured asphalt on 11th Street between Front and Grove Streets.
But the months-long infrastructure upgrades aren’t the only construction projects making navigating west downtown difficult. There’s a handful of them, but today we’re doing a little dive into the Saratoga Apartments.

They’re a seven-story, 305-apartment complex with retail on the first floor that takes up an entire city block, across from the Simplot Headquarters. The cross streets are 12th and 13th, and Grove and Front.
The project is expected to cost roughly $100 million, and aims to be wrapped up by November 2024, according to the Capital City Development Corp. All 305 units are market rate, meaning none of them are subject to affordable rate pricing restrictions.
BoiseDev recently reported an update in the plan that will require the developer to keep the alley connecting Front and Grove Streets.
