601 Canyon Boulevard, Boulder, CO
Situated at the base of the Foothills in Boulder’s idyllic West Pearl neighborhood, 601 Canyon point to Element’s comprehensive expertise and ability to overcome complex zoning and environmental challenges while satisfying the desires and requirements of every stakeholder involved. Element joined this project following the 2013 floods in Boulder, and brought a mandate to develop highly functional living spaces capable of meeting Boulder’s strict requirements for building in floodplains. Element assembled the right mix of partners to deftly navigate around limitations in available equipment, labor and tradespeople caused by the 2013 flooding in Boulder. Partnering with Surround Architecture on the $2.3 million project, Element leveraged the natural architecture to emphasize community and privacy through sophisticated amenities such as new front porches, backyard spaces and rooftop decks for privacy. Element orchestrated a collaborative effort between contractors, architects, engineers and other key partners to deliver four incredible single-family townhomes, complete with cutting-edge design, welcoming layouts and elegant exteriors — all in an unmatched location. 601 Canyon underscores Element’s phenomenal problem-solving and ability to develop a solution to a difficult situation.
