Page 34 - December 6-19, 2023 Construction, Design & Engineering Boulder Housing Partners broke ground on Rally Flats last month at 2727 29th St. in Boulder. It marks the anticipated delivery of more than 400 afford- able homes in different stages of development this year by BHP. Rally Flats will introduce 100 units of deeply permanent afford- able housing to the Boulder com- munity. These apartments are not only affordable but also will remain so for generations, ensur- ing that Boulder residents have access to secure, stable housing. The development’s location was chosen for its proximity to public transportation and essen- tial amenities, according to BHP. This transit-rich environment will support BHP’s commitment to sustainable urban living and reduce its residents’ reliance on personal vehicles. “Rally Flats is not only deeply affordable but also situated in a beautiful, transit-rich, in-fill neighborhood,” said Jeremy Dur- ham, executive director of BHP. “We eagerly anticipate this proj- ect providing a solid foundation for economic stability for 100 future residents, and we’re proud to bring this type of critical hous- ing infrastructure forward for the Boulder community.” The site has a mix of studio, one- andtwo-bedroomapartment homes with monthly rents rang- ing from $930 to $1,794, and will serve residents making between 30% and 60% of the area median income. The affordable rents pro- vide an average savings of $1,000 per month over a similar mar- ket rate apartment. Unit ameni- ties include balconies, many with Flatirons views, in-unit washers and dryers, air conditioning, ceil- ing fans, eco-passes and city of Boulder Rec Center passes. The all-electric property exceeds the city of Boulder energy code and will have 135 kilowatts of solar power that will helpmitigate util- ity costs for residents. BHP’s other projects include 60 new affordable apartments for seniors, breaking ground in January, at Mount Calvary, 3485 StanfordCourt; 73 newaffordable apartments, whose tax credits were secured in June for Diagonal Plaza at 2850 Iris Ave.; and Tantra Lake Apartments, 185 affordable, previously market-rate apart- ments, renovated and offered at rents affordable to local work- ers in July at 1000 W.

Howell Construction is pro- viding ground-up construc- tion of the new 67,000-square- foot Porsche dealership in Lakewood. The dealership, owned by Prestige Imports, celebrated a construction milestone in October with a major concrete pour. The new facility replaces an existing building, which was demolished before construc- tion could begin.

The showroom features décor finishes in compli- ance with the Porsche Cars North America standards and includes space for show- casing new and preowned cars, a fitting room, confer- ence spaces, sales offices, a customer lounge, restrooms and a second-floor mezza- nine.

The maintenance shop has 13 service bays, each with a hydraulic lift and individ- ually served by motor oil, compressed air, and window washer fluid distribution sys- tems. The maintenance area also houses a high-density parts storage carousel where shop technicians will use an automated system to retrieve parts efficiently.
