Google is moving to Boulder and it's presence is becoming more and more known. Buildings are starting to take shape and this tech-savvy community is getting excited. Phase I, which accommodates 1,000 workers, opposed to the 340 current Boulder employees, is expected to be done this year. Phase II includes the construction that is starting to take place at the intersection of 30th and Pearl, but does not currently have a set end date. This phase will contribute to the total project which includes four acres and 330,000 square feet. By then end of the project, there will be three four-story buildings with underground parking.
Google has also made a huge investment in an affordable housing project in Boulder. This project will help renovate hundreds of apartment buildings and offer a less expensive solution for those looking for housing in Boulder. This type of project is not new to Google, as their goal is to provide affordable, high quality, safe housing options for its community members and workers. These programs also allow Google to build large office space in exchange for bringing betterment to the area. In Google's founding city, Mountain View, CA, the company implemented a multi-million dollar project to invest in trails, a science center and affordable housing. In total, the company has invested in these types of projects in 44 cities across the US. There is some controversy in Boulder, however, how an affordable housing project may affect the current market. With prices so high, offering lower prices could drive down the market in order to keep it competitive. However, the pro is that Boulder get's the benefits of a large company's resources and their investment into Boulder.
One of the first apartment complexes set to begin it's renovation is Nest in South Boulder. These units will be more energy efficient and improved at the end of renovation. Osage and Thunderbird, also in South Boulder will also be apart of this project. To learn more, visit Boulder County Business
