Coeur Terre Development: A New Chapter for Coeur d’Alene

We are thrilled to share that the Coeur d’Alene City Council approved the annexation of Coeur Terre, a 440-acre mixed-use development on the western edge of Coeur d’Alene. After a decade of planning, this annexation marks a significant milestone for our subsidiary company, Kootenai County Land Company.

Aligning with the City of Coeur d’Alene’s comprehensive plan, adopted in 2022, Kootenai County Land Company held numerous meetings with 13 agencies, 26 departments, multiple special interest groups, as well as neighborhoods and individuals. This collaborative approach has been essential in crafting a well-planned development.

Coeur Terre will feature up to 2,800 housing units, businesses, shops, restaurants, 18 acres of public parks, a central landscape corridor, over 4 miles of trails, and land designated for two public schools. The development aims to provide a high quality of life for residents while supporting local economic growth.

With a buildout period of 20-30 years, Coeur Terre is committed to offering a mix of housing types including deed-restricted professional workforce. Additionally, a new police substation will be established to enhance safety by keeping officers in the community.

As part of the Lakeside Companies family, Kootenai County Land Company is excited to see the vision of Coeur Terre come to life in the years to come and making a positive impact on the community.

Stay tuned for more updates on the Coeur Terre development and thank you for your continued support.
