Surround Architecture and Element Porperties have worked together in the residential construction of beautiful, modern three-story townhome units. The project, called Dwell 22, is built around a recently renovated, historic 1920’s era farmhouse.

THE TRAILHEAD -2641 4th Street


Boulder Real Estate Gets Exciting! Moonbeam Boulder, LLC and Surround Architecture, the creators of the hottest Boulder Real Estate development in years; The Trailhead project, presented the plans, imagery and documentation of consideration to the City of Boulder Planning Board on November 1, 2012. After an extensive discussion between the neighbors, the creators, and the City members, the 5.84 acre, 23-home project was approved.  We haven’t seen an opportunity to build this much Boulder prime Real Estate in ages.

“Our vision was to create an exceptional example of an edge infill project, to be mindful of the significance of the site to the local  community and neighborhood, and to offer a respectful and sensible development solution for what is one of larger residential zoned sites in the city of Boulder, Colorado. In essence, our work so far has been to illustrate and make real and feasible a sensitive extension of the urban fabric of Boulder.” said Nicholas Fiore, one of the project architects. We got a sneak peak on Thursday, October 3rd.  The Trailhead Release Party, hosted by listing agents Julie Meko and John McElveen of Re/Max of Boulder, took place at the Kitchen Upstairs, in Boulder.  All contributors attended, as well as interested buyers.  With the help of Boulder’s signature tour bus Banjo Billy, a Boulder real estate-tailored tour to the new neighborhood, located on located at 2641 4th St. on the Western edge of central Boulder, was offered every 20 minutes to those eager to get a first glimpse of the completed project.

For those of you who have been thinking about moving downtown, and have the means, this is your chance to create the ultimate Boulder Lifestyle; walking everywhere, a Mapleton Hill address, insane views of the Flatirons, Mt. Sanitas in your back yard, Frasca Food & Wine a bike ride away…dreamy.
