Map of 30Pearl


30Pearl is located in the south west corner of Boulder Junction, a 160-acre redevelopment area that is being transformed into a mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented neighborhood with regional transit connections and public spaces that will benefit the entire community. The vision for the area is guided by the 2007 Transit Village Area Plan (TVAP). pdf

The impetus for Boulder Junction began in 2000, when the City of Boulder initiated a planning effort for a transit-oriented development (TOD), in anticipation of new transit facilities. 

The goals for purchasing 30Pearl are:
  • Advance Boulder’s long-range vision for a TOD that maximizes public investment in multimodal transportation, infrastructure improvements and affordable housing;
  • Create a mixed-use development with predominantly residential uses and some supporting commercial uses;
  • Create a range of housing types, including up to 50 percent permanently affordable housing, and;
  • Create a mix of ownership and rental housing.
