Project Description:

Main Street North is a mixed-use development at the gateway to the Holiday Neighborhood (formally the Drive-In Theater site in north Boulder).

Buildings and uses are arranged to create a lively setting along Broadway and Yellow Pine Ave. Tenants include Spruce Confections, Proto's Pizzeria, Zumo Hair Salon, a fitness center, as well as other shops, offices and residences. Well-defined common areas provide places for café seating and outdoor gathering. The architecture blends a traditional "Main Street" two-story scale with dramatic residential volumes creating an exciting streetscape.

Office and retail spaces range in size from as small as 630 sq. ft. to as large as 4,000 sq. ft. There are fourteen for sale residential units, with eight 2-bedroom and six 1-bedroom units. Four units are for homeowners earning less than 67.8% of the area median income (AMI) and are deed-restricted.

All feature an exciting contemporary design with adjacent outdoor terraces or yards. Ample parking is provided with spaces underground, behind buildings, and in single-car garages.
