Lowry Apartments will consist of four-story wood framed construction, ground floor community space, surface parking, a roof-top solar array, and a 72-unit mix, which includes 20 units for people experiencing homelessness.
41 one-bedroom units
23 two-bedroom units
eight three-bedroom units
Lowry Apartments' design is based on a contemporary reinterpretation of the existing Lowry context and uses sustainable design and healthy living practices. It will provide permanently affordable housing opportunities to families earning approximately 30-50% of the average median income and will include subsidies for transitional residents moving out of homelessness.
During preconstruction, the 68,217 sf project was brought into the budget through an intensive value engineering effort that maintained all aspects of the original program. It is being designed and built to meet Enterprise Green Community Criteria.
The entire Boulevard One development is the last new neighborhood at Lowry, once the tail end of historic Runway One at the former Lowry Air Force Base. It features walk-to neighborhood retail and offices, multiple parks and a community plaza, and paths within and around the development, providing connectivity to Crestmoor Park, the surrounding neighborhoods, and the regional bike system.
"[Your warranty superintendent] has been extremely helpful with all of our warranty issues here at Boulevard, and I have enjoyed working with him. There were many instances where he went above and beyond to assist us with questions and inquiries we have had, and he has facilitated with communications between us and the contractors or subcontractors needed for specific issues."

"If something wasn't 100% [Your warranty superintendent] made sure to correct it, and I greatly appreciate that. At this point we have only 3 open warranty items and he has already worked hard to ensure that they will be taken care of. I feel confident that I can leave my post here as Community Administrator and everything will get completed."
