The Tree Farm
Conveniently located off of State Highway 20/26 (Chinden Boulevard), The Tree Farm will offer a unique and highly desirable variety of housing and commercial opportunities. As a planned mixed-use community, there will be plenty of open space and community amenities to be enjoyed by its residents; such as a community center, pools, parks, walking paths, commercial space, a working retail nursery, easy access to Spurwing Golf Course and a beautifully designed landscape plan throughout the community which will tie into the wonderful farming history of the land. The Tree Farm will be a positive addition the North Meridian area.
In the heart of Southeast Boise—Bown Crossing—is one of OELLC’s newest communities. Bown Crossing combines a specialty marketplace of boutiques and shops, restaurants and professional offices with a variety of housing selections including custom homes and luxury villas, townhomes, single-family casitas, and residential lofts in the marketplace. The residents and businesses, each benefiting for the proximity of the other, create a thriving community with beautifully landscaped open areas, water amenities, meeting places, bustling sidewalks and a welcome return to the neighborhood in its fullest sense.
Perched on the rim of the Boise River canyon, Canyon Point is another new OELLC community in Southeast Boise.
Graced with spectacular views of the Boise foothills, Canyon Point is surrounded by public lands on all sides.
River Run and Spring Meadow
In Boise's River Run and Spring Meadow communities, with a combined total of over 850 living units and 65,000 square feet of office space, OELLC worked closely with the City of Boise and a multitude of other agencies to create a twomile natural habitat expansion of the Boise River greenbelt system. In addition, OELLC created new streams and riparian areas that were designed to reestablish spawning beds and raring habitat for trout, which also serve as a haven for a variety of other wildlife species.
Spring Mountain Ranch
At Spring Mountain Ranch, the first planned community in the McCall area, approved for up to 700 housing units of a variety of types, OELLC created 11 new acres of wetlands, six acres of ponds, and new stream corridors. OELLC has also worked with the city of McCall to upgrade the community's water system, create a spectacular new 9hole addition to the municipal golf course, and establish an eastside bypass road and bicycle path.
For Boise's Surprise Valley community, comprised of 650 single-family, condominium and apartment units, over a quarter of the site, alongside the 480 acre Barber Pool Wildlife Preserve, was set aside as open space much of it preserved in its natural state. More than three and a half miles of public and private bicycling and walking paths are linked to planned Oregon Trail improvements and a proposed neighborhood park. Human scale neighborhoods offering different housing options are separated by generous open space, but linked by an off-street pathway system.
At its 110 home high-end Lane Ranch community in Sun Valley, OELLC worked with local engineers and a leading group of environmental specialists to transform drainage from Elkhorn Creek and an irrigation ditch into a stunning system of ponds, streams and wetlands. The vegetation in this new riparian zone functions as a living area for wildlife and provides shade and stream bank stability for fish endowing the community with some of the best habitat for trout, waterfowl and song birds in the valley.
OELLC’s 220 home community, Meadow Creek, in Northwest Boise has as its centerpiece a totally reconstructed and vastly expanded drainage ditch through an overgrazed pasture. The end result is a thriving stream channel and associated wetlands that support an extensive variety of aquatic, mammal and bird life, and significantly add to the ambiance of the overall neighborhood and community.
Woodbridge, OELLC’s 283 homesite community in Meridian, focuses on a quarter mile stretch of Five Mile Creek, with its stream channels and associated riparian edges significantly enhanced.
It also provides the setting for a wood bridge as its crossing.
