The 41,943 SF building features a private underground parking garage, common courtyard for entertaining and socializing, bike storage and maintenance area, reserved storage space, dedicated visitor parking and a pet washing facility.

“The corner of 17th and Walnut is a gateway location to downtown Boulder. We’re thrilled with the opportunity to revitalize this location and provide a great place to live for people that want to be close to Pearl Street, want to leave the car behind and walk to work, or desire access to the many amenities and culture of central Boulder,” said Element Properties principal Scott Holton.
