SPARK_west is Element Properties’ 45-unit permanently affordable multifamily project in Boulder, Colorado. It is being developed in conjunction with Sutherland Park (SPARK), an 11-acre mixed-use, mixed-income, and transit-oriented community in central Boulder. The planned SPARK_west neighborhood will offer housing for workforce residents and families in a location that enables a walkable and connected lifestyle. The project is located within Boulder Junction, a 160-acre mixed-use area plan to be developed by private property owners, the City of Boulder, and the Regional Transportation District (RTD). The Boulder Junction area plan prioritizes accessibility, pedestrians, and the integration of residential and commercial uses. This emerging neighborhood will also have many amenities for future residents, including excellent bicycle access and bus rapid transit service (BRT) to and from Denver and the rest of the US-36 corridor accessed from RTD’s recently completed bus station located just south of this property. In the future, the property will be within a block’s distance of RTD’s proposed Northwest light rail stop. In addition to the great transit connectivity, SPARK will be Boulder’s first eco-district with a high LEED-ND certification that has been designed as resilient housing for the flood impacted residents that the project has been planned to serve.
