Boulder Housing Partners will celebrate the grand opening of High Mar, the first fully affordable senior housing built in the City of Boulder since 1982, tomorrow, Tuesday, June 24. The program begins at 4 p.m. “We’re incredibly grateful for our financial partners, the City of Boulder and our neighbors who have embraced this much-needed asset,” said Betsey Martens, executive director of BHP.
“Because of those friendships we can offer this beautiful place to live for people who have very few alternatives in the current market,” she added.
Residents began moving into the $12.2 million, three-story, 59-unit apartment community on June 16.
The building is expected to be fully occupied by the end of July.
Located in South Boulder at 4990 Moorhead Avenue, near Table Mesa Drive and US 36, High Mar offers a sustainable living environment, excellent amenities and convenient access to public transportation.
The one and two-bedroom apartments have full kitchens, private balconies or patios, a washer and dryer and covered parking spaces.

A 130Kw solar array is installed on the roof and carports.
Resident amenities include community wi-fi, several furnished common areas such as a library and an internet café, bicycle racks and community gardens.
A variety of enrichment and wellness programs will be offered by BHP’s resident services team.
Each resident will receive a free local and regional bus pass to take advantage of nearby transit stops and the Table Mesa Park N Ride. High Mar is near the Boulder public train system.
