This sale represents the latest in a series of recent transactions for  a rapidly growing Life Sciences sector in the Boulder market. WW Reynolds has been involved with the ongoing Life Sciences deals in and around Boulder and has gained qualified expertise on the particular needs of this industry.

Boulder Development Projects December 2020

Our team recently attended the 2020 Boulder Valley Real Estate Conference which was held virtually and hosted by BizWest. Hundreds participated to hear about the latest trends and predictions for commercial and residential real estate in the area. Our own Jeff Wingert was among the featured speakers. Among the topics covered was an overview of current development projects around Boulder Valley. Check out a few of the highlights from Boulder and Longmont below.

Boulder Project Highlights 

All Boulder development and redevelopment projects are tightly aligned with the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan, which among other things includes a 55’ height restriction and undeveloped green belt zone around the city. Below is the master map for the comprehensive plan.

Here are some major projects taking place right now:

 

Former Liquor Mart Site

A project has been approved at 1750 15th, the site of the former Liquor Mart, which will include 11,000 SF of ground floor retail, 147 apartments, and below grade parking.

Proposed Oliv at Boulder Mixed Use Development at 1750 15th Street, site of the former Liquor Mart. Design by Sopher Sparn Architects.

 

Former Old Chicago

The former building for Old Chicago at 1911 11th Street has been demolished and is being redeveloped into a three-story mixed use property with ground floor retail, second story office space, and third floor residential units.

Alpine-Balsam Development 

The Alpine Balsam project, located on the site of the former Boulder Community Hospital, is being redeveloped into a mixed-use neighborhood center. It will include a City Service Center, affordable housing, retail, and more.

Alpine-Balsam Mixed Use Project

 

University Hill Hotel 

A hotel is being constructed at the intersection of University and Broadway which will includes 187 rooms and 9,600 SF of ground floor retail space.

Hill Hotel Project Boulder

 

Boulder Valley Regional Center/Boulder Junction

At 160 acres, this large scale project is Boulder’s largest redevelopment area. The goal is to develop this area according to Boulder’s Transit Area Plan as well as convert underutilized industrial areas into a more urban friendly area. Phase I is complete and they are now moving into Phase II.

Macy’s Store

Neighboring Boulder Junction is Macy’s department store at the Twenty Ninth Street Shopping Center, which is under review to be redeveloped into 7,730 SF of marketplace retail, 155,136 SF of office, as well as plaza improvements.

East Boulder Sub-Community Plan 

We are especially excited about the changes taking place in East Boulder, not only because of some of our favorite properties in east Boulder like this and this, but because East Boulder is experiencing a surge in popularity. With easy access in and out of Boulder, exceptional Flatiron views and big parks, who wouldn’t want to be in East Boulder?

East Boulder’s Sub-Community plan is a strategy for infill in neighbors located 15 minutes from downtown. It is currently in concept testing phases and might allow for future land zoning changes. 

The recent redevelopment of Flatiron Business Park is attracting a wave of creative tech, breweries, and more. Elaine McLaughlin, a senior planner with the City of Boulder’s Planning Department, calls the trend “a renaissance for this business park that started 40 to 50 years ago.”

And lastly, the property at 5606 Airport in Lake Center Business Park received a recent annexation and approval. More to come on this WW Reynolds project!

 

Honorable Mention: The North Boulder Branch of the Library has been approved. It will include 13,010 SF to serve north Boulder.

 

Longmont Project Highlights 

 

South Main Station

Phase I of the mixed use redevelopment project at the site of a former Butterball processing plant in downtown Longmont is under way. 253 residential units were completed earlier this year and they are currently at 72% occupancy, according to Tony Chacon, Redevelopment Manager with the City of Longmont.

5th and Coffman Project

The affordable mixed use project at 5th and Coffman is underway. A partnership of Boulder County Housing Authority and Downtown Development Authority, 73 residential units and commercial space at the ground floor. It will also result in 300 parking spaces for both the public and the tenants.

Transit Area Station

Longmont is in the final planning stages for a new RTD Transit Station, which will be designed to accommodate both future rail transit, but in the nearer term Bus Rapid Transit between Longmont and Boulder. This is due to begin in late 2021.

East Side

Longmont’s east site is the fastest growing segment of Longmont. It began with the Longs Peak Medical Center at the intersection of 119 and County Line Road. A 4-story expansion project is currently underway adjacent to the hospital. Smuckers has also been been approved for an expansion in this area with construction likely to start next year.

And of course we can’t overlook the widely known Sugar Mill site, the anchor of the east Longmont commercial development area. The Urban Land Institute recently completed a technical advisory panel on the site. According to Chacon, interest in redevelopment opportunities at the Sugar Mill site remains strong and at least one prospect is nearing acquisition of needed properties to move forward with the site. So stay tuned!

Boulder company to watch: Artimus Robotics

Boulder-based Artimus Robotics is paving the way for robotic advancement in the physical world by developing ground breaking HASEL technology. Artimus recently signed a new lease at 2985 Sterling Court, a building leased and managed by WW Reynolds and owned by Ivy Realty out of Connecticut. We had the opportunity to catch up with the Artimus Robotics team to hear more about what we should expect from them in years to come.

WWR: Give us a bit of background of Artimus Robotics, how did you get started?
Artimus Robotics: Artimus Robotics is a robotic hardware technology company. We are changing the way robotics and automation move by providing life-like motion that can move like you and me. Our breakthrough technology called HASEL artificial muscles provides a new way to make motion by using flexible and soft materials rather than metals and hard-plastics common in traditional robotics. Our actuator technology was developed at the University of Colorado Boulder by the founding team of Artimus. During their PhD careers, the founders of Artimus saw the commercial potential of this technology and received significant commercial interest from companies such as Google and the US Navy and thus in late 2018, Artimus was born. Currently we operate in a variety of industries including defense, industrial automation, human-machine interfaces, as well as a few other experimental applications.

WWR: How did your team at Artimus Robotics come together?
Artimus Robotics: The founding team of Artimus met each other while pursuing their PhDs in the mechanical engineering department at CU Boulder. It was during this time that they developed the technology that is the foundation for Artimus Robotics. Our team has a diverse range of technical backgrounds, ranging from materials science, to design, to mathematics which allows us to tackle the most challenging technical problems as we bring our technology to market.

WWR: You just signed a new lease in Boulder, what made you choose that location?
Artimus Robotics: Artimus Robotics chose Boulder for its location for its proximity to the fantastic technology and start up ecosystem. We have benefited immensely from our Boulder ties, from the University, to the Small Business Development Center, to the countless mentors and advisors in the area, Boulder is an obvious choice for us to lay down our roots. Plus the proximity to the fantastic mountains and outdoors is always a great driver for encouraging our customers and investors to visit us, when health conditions permit of course.

WWR: Tell us about your experience working with WWR.
Artimus Robotics: Working with WWR was seamless for us. This was actually our first commercial lease and WWR was more than accommodating for helping us through the process. Together with our broker,  Christian Smith at the Colorado Group, we were able to quickly find common ground for the terms of our lease. We are truly thrilled with our new location, from the rate to the facilities, it fits us just perfect.

Where do you see the company in 5-10 years?
Artimus Robotics: In 5-10 years I believe Artimus Robotics will be a leader in robotic and automated motion in a variety of different sectors. We truly have a platform technology with the potential to unlock ground breaking robotics applications that have often only been envisioned in science fiction rather than real life. From healthcare to agricultural fields, we believe the missing link in many futuristic robotic applications has been the ability to automate physical processes. Artimus is excited to use our technology to unlock this bold vision.

Featured Listing: Single Offices Perfect for Social Distancing

As a result of COVID-19, some businesses and individuals are seeking private, socially-distant spaces to carry out their work. We are able to accommodate the demand with many of our single-office suites or suites with private office spaces, perfect for staying safe at work.

Growth Ahead for Downtown Boulder’s 15th Street Design District

A bright future for the former home of the famous Liquor Mart

Earlier this year, a Downtown Boulder classic, Liquor Mart, announced they were closing their doors for good, unrelated to current circumstances. Many in the area will remember shopping Liquor Mart through their college years or how the store took a chance of so many local, craft breweries. 

The property, which is located at the southeast corner of 15th Street and Canyon Blvd., will bring 150 apartments and a significant amount of ground-floor retail space. 

The Liquor Mart property also happens to be situated in the heart of the 15th Street Design District (15SDD), an area which spans both sides of 15th Street from Canyon to Arapahoe and is home to some of Boulder’s premier interior designers, architects, and graphic/web designers. 

One of our own listings, 1720 14th Street, which is currently for sale or lease, is also situated in the heart of the 15SDD. As the district continues to grow and the redevelopment of Liquor Mart proceeds, this art deco building holds an exciting future for its next owner and tenants. 

Downtown Boulder Office Space For Lease 1720 14th Street

The property is within walking distance of the Boulder Farmers Market, the Pearl Street Mall, and the Boulder Creek Bike Path. In case you weren’t sold, here are some other features of this area which make it a valuable real estate investment.

Education

Within a 2 mile radius of Downtown Boulder sits The University of Colorado and Naropa University in addition to a handful of Boulder Valley School District Schools and private schools. With schools right around the corner, it’s not surprising that the shift to living close to downtown is popular amongst families and singles alike.

Access to public transit and bike paths make getting in and out of downtown pain free. Forget the parking woes and leave the car in the garage- everything is walking distance.

World Class Eats

The food scene in Downtown Boulder has always been lively and diverse- and the pandemic hasn’t changed that. In fact, with the addition of “al fresco” dining options, which allow for restaurants and bars to expand into sidewalks, parking lots, and streets for an expanded patio experience, the streets of Boulder have never been more inviting. With plenty of patio options in addition to take-out, you definitely won’t be going hungry here. Why get it for delivery when you can walk around the corner to grab it?

What makes Downtown Boulder so remarkable is its ability to combine the classic staples of the region, like the Dushanbe Teahouse, with newer institutions like Rosetta Hall and the soon to be open Avanti Food & Beverage. The restaurants and bars in the neighborhood attract residents from all over the region, not just Boulder itself.

The Commute-Free Life

Commercial spaces in Downtown Boulder are highly-coveted. The demand for more affordable residential real estate in the neighborhood is largely due to the proximity to offices and businesses that are downtown. While many of us are working from home, there is much evidence to suggest that in-person office culture will remain relevant even as we reemerge from the pandemic. Even large tech companies who have offered the most flexible work-from-home options are holding on to their offices for when it’s safe to return to them.

WHOLE FOODS MARKET SIGNS LEASE ON NEW LOCATION IN BOULDER, COLORADO

— PRESS RELEASE —

WHOLE FOODS MARKET SIGNS LEASE ON NEW LOCATION IN BOULDER, COLORADO

Whole Foods Market will join a throng of healthy- and natural-living retail stores in the south Boulder Table Mesa Shopping Center

June 11, 2020 — Boulder, CO — W. W. Reynolds announces that Whole Foods Market will be an anchor tenant at the Table Mesa Shopping Center in South Boulder.  Whole Foods Market recently signed a lease for the 32,000 square foot space formerly occupied by Lucky’s Market.

As the only natural food store in the Table Mesa Shopping Center, a south Boulder retail center which is owned and managed by W.W. Reynolds, Whole Foods Market will join other natural and healthy living retail businesses such as Flatiron Natural PetBoulder’s Natural Animal Hospital, and Orange Theory Fitness.

Located at the intersection of Table Mesa Drive and Broadway, the Table Mesa Shopping Center captures the robust South Boulder market. An estimated 57% of Boulder’s population resides south of Baseline Road, but of the more than 30 grocery retailers in Boulder, only three are located in this area. Whole Foods Market will become the fourth.

“It is an ideal space for Whole Foods,” said Chad Henry, a broker with W.W. Reynolds. “The size and location are a fit, plus, as a former grocery store the space already had great existing infrastructure.”
