Welcome to The Bridge Townhomes: Boise’s most exciting community.


As part of Downtown Boise’s growing Waterfront District, The Bridge Townhomes provide quality home construction with a unique sense of style and modern flair. Centrally located to some of the Treasure Valley’s most sought-after amenities like the Boise Whitewater Park and the new Esther Simplot Park, this newest collection of townhomes offers today’s active individual the perfect place to call home.


The Bridge Townhomes will be a part of the Waterfront District Subdivision. This new project is part of the revitalization of the east end of Garden City.

The Waterfront District Homeowner's Association (HOA) owns 2100 feet of river frontage between the Greenbelt and the water. Osprey, kingfishers, and eagles often perch in snags over the water and are enjoyed from the deck and patio. The HOA has a recreation lot for community gatherings and other green space, over an acre in all.

Boise, Idaho is one of the country's best up-and-coming metropolitan areas. With historical roots in mining and agriculture, this jewel of the Gem State has grown to become a hub for the Northwest and the center for technological growth in the region. The Waterfront District residents enjoy four full seasons with mild summer and winter months, as well as a large and diverse number of attractions and cultural experiences.


Surrounding Re-Development and Public Projects

Big changes are underway in this part of the Treasure Valley’s urban core. All levels of government, as well as civic organizations, seem to recognize the logic of redevelopment here and are providing hard money in support of that change.



Federal stimulus money funded the $750,000, 200-foot pedestrian bridge, craned into place dramatically and opened by Garden City’s Mayor Evans and Boise’s Mayor Bieter at a joint ceremony in March 2011.


New Public Park

The Simplot family’s gracious donation allowed an old concrete plant to be acquired for a new 55-acre park—the latest addition to the City of Trees’ “String of Pearls”.


Whitewater Park

In the river channel itself, kayakers launched a concept that has evolved into the new Ray Neef whitewater park, now under construction. [] This will establish a four-season play wave for kayakers, boarders and other river recreation, just steps from the Bridge Townhomes. Walk to the wave with a boat over your shoulder. Or you can stroll over and watch the river rodeo antics of water enthusiasts from beginner to expert.


36th Street Rebuilt

Road improvements will soon make it easier to get to the Bridge Townhomes. Ada County Highway District (ACHD) recently committed to the reconstruction of 36th Street, from Chinden Blvd. north into the Waterfront District. The road will have a new surface, curbs, sidewalks and street trees. In a display of inter-governmental cooperation, Garden City planned for the replacement of water and sewer lines and worked with ACHD to cap the new utilities with a new roadway.


30th Street Extension

Across the river, Boise and ACHD are coordinating the construction of the 30th Street Extension between State Street and Main Street/Fairview. This will link four lanes of traffic, along Esther Simplot Park, from busy State Street (near Rose Street and the Idaho Department of Transportation building) to the undeveloped land along Main and Fairview, below the I-84 Connector. The City of Boise has updated zoning and land-use rules to encourage new investment in this west end of downtown.
