The interior of a model unit at Bandon River Apartments.
Bandon River Apartments at Snake River Landing will be having its grand opening Friday morning at 11.

Like Rosselare on 12th Street, this is an apartment community for people 62 and over. It is a joint project by Thomas Development Co. and Northwest Integrity Housing Co.

Formed in 2009, Northwest Integrity Housing is an Idaho non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide affordable housing for residents in the Intermountain West. Since its formation, Northwest Integrity Housing Co. has helped develop 3 senior apartment communities, which total 129 units. Thomas Development has developed 65 housing communities, including 52 in Idaho.

It is anticipated that Bandon River will receive the prestigious U.S. Green Building Council LEED for Homes Platinum certification, just as did Rosslare, Summerhill and Cardona, our other recent eastern Idaho developments. USGBC LEED for Homes is a rating system that champions energy, water, and resource efficiency, reducing waste, improving indoor air quality for a healthy home, and sustainable, green building design, construction, and operations.

The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held Friday from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Refreshments, prize drawings and apartment tours will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The address is 1755 White Sand Creek Way. For more information, call (208) 524-1268.
