S’Park is a $100 million Boulder project.
Demolition paves-way for S’Park.
S’Park opens in about two years.
Demolition has begun on the former Sutherland lumberyard site in Boulder, to make way for a $100 million, mixed-use project.
The 10.8-acre S’Park development at 3390 Valmont Road, when completed, will include:
- 100,000 rentable square feet of Class A and creative office space;
- 145 units of luxury apartment units;
- 38 affordable housing units;
- And 40,000 rentable square feet of ground floor retail space.
Kinship Capital, the John Buck Co. and Element Properties are developing S’Park. Element Properties is based in Boulder. Kinship and John Buck are each based in Chicago.
“This marks the initial transformation of the S’Park site, a milestone that the both the development team and the Boulder community have long been anticipating,” said Scott Holton, principal of Element Properties.
“We could not be more excited to begin preparing the site for vertical construction to begin later this year,” he added.
The Boulder Planning Board unanimously approved S’Park last September. Buildings at S’Park will have either 3 or 4 stories.
S’Park will be the first Platinum LEED Neighborhood Development community in Colorado. The U.S. Green Building Council, which awards LEED ratings, describes LEED ND communities as the “antidote to sprawl.”
LEED ND communities should have features such as grocery stores within walking distance, be pedestrian and bike friendly, have high-performing green buildings and have plenty of parks and green space.
S’Park is part of the much larger redevelopment project known as Boulder Junction. Boulder Junction spans 160 acres bordered by Valmont Road to the north, Pearl Street to the south, 30th Street to the west and Foothills Parkway to the east.
The primary architect for S’Park is Sopher Sparn Architects.
Demolition is expected to take place about two months.
When demolition is completed, infrastructure work will. Vertical construction is planned to begin by the end of the year.
Completion is scheduled for mid-2018.
