Best affordable housing no one can afford

Any of It

Editors' Picks

Everybody is talking about workforce housing in Boise, but nobody is building it. Spit from the top of the U.S. Bank Building, and you're likely to hit a luxury condo project. Even on the more affordable end of the downtown condo spectrum, the price is too high for the workforce. The problem with survival of the financial fittest is that the people who want to live downtown are members of the workforce, not their multimillionaire bosses. Here's our suggestion: Carve up all those half-million dollar condos into single-bedroom places. Maybe then we could start talking about real estate occupancy rather than vacancy.
