Mayor Matt Appelbaum unveils Boulder Junction


Last week, we attended the long awaited grand opening of Boulder Junction. Hard to believe we've been covering this development for a decade. Back when it was originally called Transit Village, the concept plans involved many thousands of units and massive amounts of new jobs. 

What Were We Promised?
- 8,000 future jobs 
- 5,000 housing units (1,000 affordable)
- Light rail to Denver

What Did We Get?
- Solana (319 high-end rental apartments)
- RTD bus station
- Hyatt Place Hotel (150 rooms)

What's Next: 
- Depot Square (71 affordable rental apartments, almost complete)
- The Jaycee Building will eventually contain a restaurant. Rumors have swirled that it will be an Oscar Blues or a new Mountain Sun, neither appear to be true. 
- A frackas over what will replace the Pollard Motors buildings on the city owned 5.5 acre parcel when their lease expires in 2016.

  1. The traffic congestion in this area is enough to keep me away. I avoid Pearl Street after 30th heading east at all costs!
