Relocating can be an exciting time filled with opportunities and unknowns. And for us, at the Mike Brown Group, moving our office to a new location wasn’t any different. We knew we wanted our roots to remain in the community we love– where growth is abundant, connecting with our neighbors is encouraged, and the proximity to shared human experiences is just steps away.
One of the fastest-growing cities in the country and the second-largest city in the state of Idaho, Meridian encompasses the spirit of all the things that cultivate kinship. From neighborhood block parties to an afternoon of outdoor shopping, convenient dining, and the excitement of Friday night lights, this sizable city has big dreams and a small-town spirit.
While Meridian stretches across either side of the interstate, northwest Meridian, the new home for the Mike Brown Group, is quickly becoming a hotspot of goodness.
Situated on the southeast corner of Chinden and Linder, Orchard Park is a thoughtfully curated destination where chic plaza vibes and suburb life collide. Let’s take a deep dive into what we can expect from this soon-to-be northwest Meridian destination.
An outdoor shopping venue refined. A neighborhood gathering place. A vision of summer art fairs, open park spaces, and the perfect blend of dining experiences and food trucks. A residential community where biking for your morning coffee is how you start your day, and walking to your dinner reservation is the perfect way to unwind from a busy week.

Set to become the most integrated contemporary built environment and one of the most popular year-round destinations” in all of Idaho, according to the project team of EC3. Add a wave-surf pool, and this barn will be the talk of the town.

What was once an open field will transform into a destination location– a grandiose vision with a local flare in mind. Change is an inevitable part of growth, and although the landscape of what once was can look different from what is and what will be, there is vibrant fulfillment in the new.
At the Mike Brown Group, we understand what it means to embrace change. Whether you are moving from one side of the city to the other or relocating to our amazing state, we are here to help you find the community in which you undoubtedly belong.
