Perhaps the greatest stealth remodel in the history of the Wood River Valley will begin next month at the 192-unit Balmoral Apartments complex in the Woodside subdivision of Hailey.
Completed in 2002, the 18 two-and-three-story buildings at Balmoral will get an interior and exterior $8 million upgrade. Dominium Inc., the owner/manager of the property since 2014, plans to pull it off with minimal inconvenience for its tenants.
Dominium specializes in “occupied rehabilitation” projects and owns and manages 34,000 apartments in 23 states.
Crews will be tracked by a secure door-lock system from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and leave the units under construction habitable and clean each night.
“This is an enormous project. You guys really have your act together,” said P&Z Commissioner Owen Scanlon.
