Downtown Boise is a tight-knit community and that feeling has been kept front and center over the years of development and growth. From the front doors of The Afton, all the activities and exploration you could ever want are within walking distance.
The best things take time and The Afton is no exception. Over the past year, building progress has been unwavering.
Framing is in place, almost every window installed and progress has refused to slow even a step as fall winds blow into Boise. On the exterior, change can be seen almost daily.
We couldn’t help it. We owed it to ourselves and more importantly, to you.
The truth is, from the first moment the sketches were finished, to right now, as construction brings it to life, the questions have swirled.
With construction well into the first of two phases, the impact is already reverberating through the heart of the city.
And the secret’s out.
Our first phase condominiums are going fast with a waiting list for several popular styles! The demand to live in the beating heart of downtown Boise continues to grow, and for good reason.
It’s a sentence that’s rarely uttered, “I love the commute to work.” For many, the to and from can be the hardest part.
So what happens if that isn’t a worry anymore? What happens when the distance between home and work is just a staircase?
Summer’s over. It’s a difficult reality for many to swallow. The same many who see Autumn only as the time to baton down that hatches and wait for winter to creep in and pass by.
This is not, and should never be, the case in Boise.
Capitol Boulevard may be the backbone of Idaho’s largest city, but 8th Street is the city’s culinary heart. In a walkable half mile stretch, from the front door of The Afton to the State Capitol building, Boise’s dining options are abundant and diverse.
Odds are you’re not a world-renowned chef.
There’s good news though . . . it doesn’t matter. In your kitchen, in your home, you’re the best chef in the room.
And to be the best, you have to give yourself the tools to live up to the mantel. You have to hand pick what makes you great, regardless of what you’re cooking.
There’s something about a great meal.
It can be as simple as the quality of the food being eaten. But it’s usually much more. It’s the idea that a great meal allows us to find something we’re constantly seeking, comfort.
It’s time to take a break.
Not a break to slow down the day to day living or to sit calmly in a comfortable chair and let stress roll off.
A break from standing still.
Boise’s a city that’s about more than fast-paced living.
In the foundations of downtown lies the recurring idea that life is best lived one step at a time. That true living is experienced not in zipping from place to place, but through the stressless enjoyment of following the rolling path that takes you there.
Downtown living doesn’t mean sacrificing lush yards for concrete.
Boise finds itself as a diverse combination of ecological triumphs and human interactions that collide in the downtown scene.
But what’s in it for you? Why enter the green space?
The Afton is something new in downtown Boise, Idaho.
If downtown living is equally new in your consideration for the future, you might be wondering what would change in your lifestyle. What would you need to leave behind?
It can be said that many things begin at home. One of the most valuable is the feeling of community. Community will always make an ok place, a great place to live.
So often one can see examples of highrise towers or anonymous buildings that seem to have thought about “people” and “community” last. The main offense is a focus on a building concept rather than a home.
For many people Boise is the perfect place to live. Inspiring scenery, endless outdoor recreation opportunities, a thriving business community, a vibrant downtown scene, a leading university, well known arts centers, theatres, large parks, concert halls and a contemporary theatre are all tied together by a river and the Greenbelt.
We are something new in downtown Boise living. With 67 condominium homes, including live-work units and retail on site, The Afton will be a mixed-use community breaking ground in Boise’s Cultural District this autumn. Situated between 8th, 9th & River Streets, the very walkable location is just steps away from The Boise Art Museum, Boise Farmer’s Market, Trader Joe’s, The Flicks, Boise Contemporary Theatre, BODO, Boise State University, shopping, dining and the scenic Julia Davis Park, Boise River and Boise Greenbelt. The Afton location offers the best in urban lifestyle and natural surroundings.
