New deed-restricted workforce housing complex adds 448 beds for mostly seasonal workers
More than five years since Lone Mountain Land Company planned to acquire the parcel and three years after its original projected completion, the Powder Light apartment complex has been built.
On Thursday, Feb. 16, more than 100 tenants will move into the westernmost quarter of Powder Light, bringing the 48-unit complex to full occupancy. The modular-unit apartments were constructed and furnished offsite as modular units by BuildingWorks Nashua in Boise, and assembled onsite in 2021 by Langlas and Associates. The project adds 448 beds of local workforce housing, generally focused on seasonal workers employed by Lone Mountain Land Company and its subsidiaries.
