Project Description:

The West End Lofts are located on a prominent corner at the edge of downtown Boulder, Colorado. The solution to the complex design problem required moving an existing historic building 50 feet to the west to make room for a new mixed-use building (retail and residential) along the entire 9th Street frontage.

The new building contains approximately 7,000 s.f. of retail space at-grade level with four residential lofts on the second and third floors. Setting back the third floor space gives the building a two-story scale in keeping with its context.

The existing building is renovated and landmarked in its new location along Walnut Street. The one and a half-story building provides a transition to other buildings along Walnut Street, which have a one and two-story scale.
