Boulder Housing Partners receives design award for its sustainability

Boulder Housing Partners has, for years, aimed to fulfill a “triple bottom line” that considers not just fiscal viability but also social good and environmental sustainability. The recognition of the Boulder housing authority’s Red Oak Park project with a prestigious award from the Urban Land Institute represents the culmination of those efforts, said BHP Executive Director Betsey Martens. The project includes “green” and energy efficient features that reduce the utility bills of the low-income residents who live there. The development is also close to bike lanes and bus routes, features a community center for youth programs and neighborhood events, and offers free wireless to residents. The $13 million project, funded from multiple sources, was designed by Coburn Development and built by Wyatt Construction Company.
