NDC Chooses Gardner Company for Pivot Block Project

The Nampa Development Corporation has chosen Gardner Company as the master developer of the library and pivot block project in downtown Nampa.

Gardner Company has offices in Salt Lake City and Boise and has completed several major mixed-use projects locally, including the Saltzer St. Luke’s Medical Plaza near the Treasure Valley Marketplace in Nampa and The Portico at Meridian retail, medical and restaurant campus located at Eagle Rd. and Franklin Rd. Gardner is currently working on the 8th and Main project in downtown Boise.

Pictured below are the Ventana St. Luke's Saltzer Medical Plaza in Nampa and The Gateway mixed-use project in Salt Lake City.

The vote of approval yesterday now moves NDC into negotiations with Gardner Company in the coming months.

The project will include development of a new public library, parking structure and additional mixed-used private development to spur economic growth.

The pivot block is where the old public safety building, old fire administration building and Central Services are located, and is bordered by 12th Avenue South, 11th Avenue South, 2nd Street South and 3rd Street South. It is considered a “pivot block” because a large volume of traffic pivots around it.

The only building currently occupied on the block is Central Services, which will move into a new building by City Hall in a few months. Once the block is vacant, NDC will provide environmental remediation on the property and demolition of existing structures on the pivot block. The pivot block re-development will be NDC’s second large-scale development project, the first being the new Hugh Nichols Public Safety Building.

As we move forward with the process, we'll update the blog with timelines, public involvement opportunities and highlights. Idaho Press-Tribune coverage of NDC's meeting, including audio, here.
