Boulder council supports lower density at 3303 Broadway — but doesn’t feel good about it – Boulder Daily Camera

Late last year, developer Margaret Freund brought forth a proposal for a mixed-use high-density development, with … 50 middle-income housing units. Her vision for the currently vacant lot, which sits near the corner of Broadway and Iris Avenue, was shot down in a unanimous decision by the Planning Board.

 

Council members did appear open, however, to re-evaluating 3303 Broadway for its potential as a project with lower density than that which Fruend proposed.

That opportunity for re-evaluation came Tuesday, and the council, by a 5-4 margin, voiced reluctant support for a designation of the site that allows for as few as 10 units per acre, and gives a density bonus of up to 20 units per acre if Fruend decides to develop on-site affordable housing.
