30PRL, located at 2360 30th Street, is a 120-unit affordable housing complex serving families earning 30-60% AMI. The project consists of a total of 181,370 sq. ft. in three buildings on a 4.6-acre site. The community includes 20 studios, 49 one-bedrooms, 42 two-bedrooms and 9 three-bedrooms in 111,895 sq. ft. of living space. The development also has a 167-stall subterranean parking garage, totaling 69,475 sq. ft. on one level.
Housing Colorado awarded Milender White (MW), Boulder Housing Partners (BHP) and Coburn Architects the 2022 Housing Colorado Eagle Award for 30PRL, which was built not only to provide affordable apartments to the local workforce, but also to provide permanent supportive housing for the homeless and adults with disabilities. The 508 sq. ft. of commercial space on the first floor is dedicated to local independent businesses and nonprofits. Outdoor amenity space on the ground floor includes 700+ bike spaces and car share spaces.
30PRL is designed for Enterprise Green Communities certification and incorporates construction features supporting the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, including electric-only energy, solar-ready, customer-sited technology, and electric car charging. MW used advanced prefabrication systems to produce 29,000 LF of wall and floor panels for the three buildings, using an innovative on-site prefabrication process.
30PRL was developed in partnership with BHP, the City of Boulder, and Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. The project takes its name from its location on the corner of 30th and Pearl, to the west of the Boulder Hyatt and the Boulder RTD Depot Square development.
