30PRL is a permanent affordable housing complex serving families earning 30-60% AMI. The 181,370 sq. ft. project consists of three buildings on a 5.4-acre site, with 120 units: 17 studios, 48 one-bedrooms, 44 two-bedrooms, and 11 three-bedrooms for a total of 111,895 sq. ft. of living space. The development also features a one-level, 167-stall below-ground parking garage, totaling 69,475 sq. ft.
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 that support a transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, including electric-only energy, solar-ready customer-sited technology, and electric car charging. Milender White used advanced prefabrication systems to produce 29,000LF of wall and floor panels, using an innovative on-site process.
30PRL was developed in partnership with Boulder Housing Partners and the City of Boulder. The project is located on the corner of 30th and Pearl, to the west of the Boulder Hyatt and the Boulder RTD Depot Square development.
