City’s ‘East Edge’ could be due for Boulder Junction-style makeover – Boulder Daily Camera

In January, a panel of visiting urban design and development experts published a report envisioning what the industrial zone around Arapahoe Avenue and 55th Street could look like under very different circumstances. The panelists, working for the Urban Land Institute and commissioned by the Boulder Chamber and the Boulder Area Realtors Association, devised a plan for a new “East Edge” of the city that felt like more of a “special place” than it currently does. Focusing on the 55th Street corridor from Arapahoe to Pearl Parkway, the advisory panel recommended introducing housing in several formats and at varied price levels. …

The panelists recommended exploring buildings above Boulder’s 55-foot height limit, and as high as 90 feet tall, as a way to accommodate extra office space and some of the up to 2,400 dwelling units they considered for the area.
