PearlWest is a new, mixed-use commercial development located at the western edge of the Pearl Street pedestrian Mall at the transition between Boulder’s urban core and the trailheads of the Rocky Mountains. The 160,000 sf site was created by the vacancy of a former surface parking lot and newspaper building that spanned from Pearl to Walnut Streets, creating one of the largest re-development parcels in the heart of the Downtown Historic District in the last decade. The program is an exciting mix of uses including retail, restaurants, office, and below grade parking.  A 34-foot tall topographic relief model of the Front Range activates the atrium space. Through the opening of several high value spaces and amenities to public access, the site welcomes the surrounding community while still providing state-of-the-art Class A office space to its contracted tenants.
