West Boise Real Estate

Bordering the city of Meridian, the history of West Boise is a story of success. First, it attracted farmers, then logging millers, oil tank farms, slaughterhouses, and a concrete plant. With these successful businesses came people. Most of West Boise is residential suburban neighborhoods. It is also home to the largest shopping center in the state, the Boise Towne Square Mall. The mall contains 110 stores and 25 food vendors. The big anchor stores are Macy’s, Kohl’s, Dillard’s, and JCPenny. The area around the mall is filled with additional retail stores and dozens of places to eat.

West Boise’s growing population has appealed to investors, home buyers and builders. In addition, residential developments range from new and old subdivisions, to apartment complexes and townhouses. Notably, it is home to the Hewlett Packard’s printing division, and is one of the larger employers in the area. Due to a global agreement to cut down on carbon emissions, the city has extensive environmental restoration and comprehensive planning programs to make the area attractive. These initiatives and controlled growth make West Boise an attractive place to live.

Tourists have a wide variety of recreational sites to choose from, including more than a dozen parks and the Aquarium of Boise. The main roads such as Fairview, Franklin, Ustick, and Emerald provide fast and easy access to the rest of Boise and the Treasure Valley. Likewise, a breath-taking view of its landscape can be observed after taking a 45-minute adventure in a hot air balloon. West Boise also has the most relatively flat terrain in the area, allowing eye-catching views of the Boise foothills.
