BOISE, Idaho, Sept. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Afton, Boise's premier urban living community in the heart of the cultural district, is energizing owners-to-be in the first phase of the downtown Boise project by completing the final steps necessary to convert reservations to purchase agreements.
This action marks the coming completion of Phase 1 and launches plans for Phase 2. Reservations are nearly full, with a waiting list for some of the most popular styles of condominiums in the new Downtown community.
Consumer response to this urban community affirms the recent nationwide shift to walkable urban living with less dependence on motor vehicles and more focus on lifestyle. The Capital City Development Corporation (CCDC), Boise's redevelopment agency, was keenly aware of the movement toward urban living and the need for more innovative downtown housing solutions when they selected Michael Hormaechea to develop this project.
"We were honored to be awarded this important Boise project," said Michael Hormaechea, a Boise native with two decades of real estate development experience. "We took the time to listen to consumers and it has really paid off. Based on our reservations, waiting list and projections for purchase agreements, we are confident that Phase 1 will sell out quickly."
Phase 2 planning has begun. Hormaechea believes that consumers will respond to Phase 2 with the same enthusiasm of the original building because of its rich lifestyle offerings. The Afton is centrally located in Boise's Cultural District which is only a few steps from Boise's Greenbelt system—a 25-mile multi-use, non-motorized commuter and recreation corridor that connects the City's robust park system.
"We are looking forward to living in our downtown condo close to the river, restaurants, library, greenbelt, parks, coffee shops, grocery stores and walking or biking to every one of them," said Jane Seys, future homeowner at The Afton. "The Afton team has allowed us to upgrade and change the design to accommodate things wanted. That was an important factor for us."
