The Terraces of Boise first opened last summer, and it’s already making an impression on new residents and the community at large. Each year, the city of Boise partners with the Idaho chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) for the Building Excellence Awards. As part of the 2016 honors, The Terraces was selected as the Mayor’s Choice Award winner.

Sponsored by American Baptist Homes of the West, The Terraces is a continuing care retirement community that includes 161 independent living units, 40 assisted living units, 24 memory care suites and 48 skilled nursing beds. It welcomed its first residents in late July 2015.

Greystone’s Bud Green, who served as part of the development team for this project, recently shared his thoughts on the community:

“Many years ago, planning began on The Terraces of Boise on behalf of ABHOW. To now see the initial vision refined into a completed senior community is a joy and very satisfying for all the people involved in making this community a reality. The Terraces of Boise can now serve the seniors of Boise with quality care in an environment that provides many social opportunities for residents and their families. ABHOW will now be able to perpetuate their long history of service to seniors, but now from the significant community asset called The Terraces of Boise.”

The Mayor’s Choice Award will be officially given at the Building Excellence Awards luncheon on May 19. Click the image below to see the handout that lists and describes each winner.
