Bown Crossing

Bown Crossing is a 35 acre development that includes 92 residential units that include a mixture of single family residential homes, patio homes, town homes and lofts, as well as 59,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space that are all nestled together to form a pedestrian oriented design that brings a diverse and exciting new energy to southeast Boise.

Bown Way makes the vehicular connection from Boise Avenue to Park Center Boulevard possible, but this developments connection between its new structures and its old world feel is what makes this project truly unique.
