How much will the developer/owner of Bluebird make?

None of the economics of this project have been disclosed to the public, despite this being a publicly funded project. Ms. Frick of the City staff has called this “a private development on public property" (Dec 2020).

According the City’ FAQs on the project on development costs alone the developer can make up to 15% of the project cost. The norm in Idaho is 8%. They will also make some unknown return as the owner of the project.
