Boulder Commons Signs 40K SF In Leases
Seven tenants have signed on for space in Boulder County’s first aspiring net-zero commercial project.
In total, the new leases occupy a footprint of more than 40K SF of the 100K SF Boulder Commons building. The tenants are:
- Rocky Mountain Institute, 14,302 SF
- Financial services firm CoreLogic, 9,504 SF
- Law firm Lathrop Gage, 9,300 SF
- Real estate development and investment firm Meriwether Cos., 2K SF
- Boulder Commons’ developer Morgan Creek Ventures, 1,950 SF
- Andrea’s hair salon, 1,535 SF
- Vasu Skin Solutions, 915 SF
“With a shared commitment to the efficient use of natural resources, and a design focus on employee well-being, all of the tenants saw value in occupying Boulder Commons,” said CBRE Senior Associate Erik Abrahamson, who is leasing the property along with Jeremy Kroner and Joe Faller. “Boulder Commons offers the most environmentally sustainable commercial design in all of Boulder County.”
Boulder Commons is at 2440 and 2490 Junction Place, just north of the transit center at Boulder Junction. The development leverages sustainability features to achieve the goal of net-zero energy usage. The buildings are designed for optimal light penetration, which reduces the lighting load and overall energy usage while maximizing views and daylight for employees. Additional energy is harvested by solar panels that line the roof and east building facades. Other sustainable features include a tight, well-insulated building envelope, a highly efficient HVAC system, energy-efficient lighting, low-flow plumbing and a car-share program.
“Boulder Commons is setting a new standard for responsible mixed-use development in our region,” Morgan Creek Ventures principal Andrew Bush said. “No other commercial project in the area combines the same levels of leading-edge sustainable design, top-quality tenant amenities and an ideal transit-oriented location.”
Morgan Creek Ventures is in the process of acquiring the Airgas parcel of land adjacent to Boulder Commons with the intention of developing Phase 2 of the project, which will include an additional 50K SF of combined office and retail space, as well as residential units. The developer is building a new facility for Airgas in Dacono. When that project is complete, Morgan Creek Ventures will proceed with developing Phase 2 of Boulder Commons.
