Carraway on Penn
Confluent Development, Pinkard Construction and OZ Architecture, in partnership with Narrate Companies, celebrated the groundbreaking for the project partners’ first multifamily project, Carraway on Penn, on December 7th, 2021.
This marks the official start of construction that is anticipated to continue into October 2022. The project consists of a .3-acre site to be developed into approximately 34,619 square feet of a new 42-unit multifamily residential property offering amenity space and onsite covered parking.
“The complex site geometry, a triangle, inspired our team pay special attention to key corners and show restraint along the street edges. Sensitivity to the building entries and window openings led to a unique asset that will provide much needed housing in the heart of South Pearl district,” said Matt Chiodini, Associate Principal at OZ Architecture. “Our goal with Carraway on Penn was to complement the historical components of the neighborhood while providing a thoughtful, modern living experience that will deliver lasting value.”
Tony Burke, President and COO of Pinkard, says the project is a natural fit for Pinkard’s teams who have extensive experience building multifamily projects across Colorado.
“Confluent Development is doing tremendous work bringing new and innovative multifamily spaces to Denver and we’re very excited to be a part of the Carraway project,” said Burke.
The Spoke on Coffman Apartments
The Coffman Street affordable housing project will provide affordable housing as part of a vibrant, mixed-use building that will include parking for Boulder County employees and commercial/office space located at 518 Coffman St in Longmont, includes 73 units of permanently affordable housing, +/- 10,000 sq. ft. of office space, and a parking garage.
The project is be located on a Boulder County owned lot that was formerly used as a surface parking lot for Boulder County employees working at the newly completed St. Vrain Community Hub.
The site is located prominently in Longmont and has many challenges including extremely limited laydown space and high foot-traffic. Pinkard’s team has taken extra precautions to protect passers-by and minimize traffic and keep good relationships with neighbors.
Because of separate funding sources, Pinkard worked with BCHA to split scopes and billing in order to streamline BCHA’s project management.
The Edge Apartments
The Edge Ph I is a 82,000 sf ground-up facility with 70-units of affordable housing for working families and survivors of the 2012 High Park Fire and September 2013 floods, plus permanent supportive housing for homeless veterans. The facility consists of six three-story wood-framed buildings and a single-story clubhouse. 60 of the units are set aside for income-qualified individuals; the remaining ten units are reserved for homeless veterans. The campus also contains a clubhouse, urban gardens, tot lot, walking trails, and open space, with immediate access to the neighboring business park, retail, and professional services.
The Edge Ph II is a 80,000 sf ground-up facility with 69-units of affordable housing for working families. Both Phases are designed and constructed to meet Enterprise Green Communities Criteria. Financing includes Low Income Housing Tax Credits, municipal and private funding, and the federally funded Community Development Block Grant Disaster Relief program (CDBG-DR) administered by the Colorado Department of Local Affairs.
Pinkard worked closely with Loveland Housing Authority to help the authority pull together funding from a variety of sources. We also held numerous meetings with OZ Architecture to provide in-depth drawing review, constructability comments and other input. This collaboration resulted in well-detailed drawings and a solid Green Design and sustainability approach.
Highlands Ranch Metro Dist. Service Center
The project scope includes an interior renovation of the existing service center building to allow for added office spaces, conference, break and lunchroom areas, locker rooms (with added fixtures) and overall interior finish upgrades. New construction will consist of a 6,000 square foot fleet services building and shops and storage buildings totaling 7,400 square feet located in the center of the existing yard area. The cost of construction is currently estimated at $5 million.
The existing 12,000 square foot service center was constructed in 1999 for the Parks, Recreation and Open Space Department and provides workspaces for administration, recreation, planning, facilities, parks, parkways, park services, open space, forestry, and fleet sections. Construction on the renovation began in September 2020 and is expected to conclude in August of 2021.
Three metal building structures:
Fleet Building: 6,500 sf ground up. Included office space, restrooms, mezzanine, lift and vehicle service equipment
East Storage: 3,500 sf ground up
West Storage: 2,500 sf ground up
The Audrey Senior Affordable Housing
The Audrey at Highlands Ranch Town Center is a 135-unit senior affordable housing project on a two-acre site within a mixed-use development in the heart of Highlands Ranch. The five-story, fire-treated-wood ground-up project featured considerable heavy earthwork to achieve a significant grade change requiring several retaining walls. The structure is post-tensioned concrete on grade with structural masonry cores and structural steel on the first floor. A custom rain garden mitigates stormwater.
During preconstruction Pinkard collaborated with the owner and design team through many design iterations to maintain Shea’s budget and program. Designed to market-rate quality and amenity standards, the program is thoughtfully organized to optimize accessibility to all units. Elevators are centrally located, ample small and large-group gathering areas populate the floorplan, and most outdoor spaces contain recreation and siting options. There is sheltered pedestrian access to the parking garage across the street. The Audrey is being developed with Douglas County Housing Partnership and leverages the federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to deliver age- and income-restricted apartments. The Audrey’s location within the Highlands Ranch Town Center is adjacent to nearly everything active seniors need including the public library and civic green, dining, grocery, banking, auto repair, and gas.
Frasier Meadows Master Plan
The Frasier Retirement Community’s $100 million Master Plan buildout consists of the construction of The Prairies, a 98-unit independent living building with a 110-space parking level on the lowest ﬂoor; a 6,000 sf Arts and Education building with classrooms, theater and a 300-seat multi-purpose room with stage; a 9,500 sf wellness center with a 25-meter exercise pool; and extensive renovations of the main ﬂoor of Frasier Central. All work is conducted on the occupied 530,000 sf, 14.5-acre complex.
To meet Frasier’s demand for high quality and an uncompromising sensitivity to the needs of 400-plus seniors, Pinkard conducted an exhaustive preconstruction phase that focused on intensive collaboration with architect Hord Coplan Macht, Frasier, and numerous Frasier user groups.
As a result of these efforts, the Pinkard/Frasier/Hord Coplan Macht collaboration produced “a perfect balance in site placement to achieve optimal aesthetics and natural views, respecting City of Boulder jurisdictional restrictions (including the 55-foot height limits), and FEMA ﬂood-plain requirements, all the while allowing Frasier to enjoy tremendous ﬂexibility for future growth. And we did this while balancing Frasier’s budgetary needs with the health, safety, and comfort of a demanding senior population.”
During construction, Pinkard managed an unusually complex permitting process, which included 12 separate building permits as opposed to the customary one or two permits.
