CBC also announced the selection of several key project team members for the 112,423-square-foot Ridgeway Science & Tech facility. They include commercial real estate developer Prime West under the leadership of its CEO Jim Neenan, which will provide development services, and Swinerton construction company, which will join the project as the general contractor.
“Ridgeway Science & Tech has the potential to serve as a powerful example of responsible, forward-thinking development that serves both stakeholders and the community,” said Daniel Aizenman, Director of Development and Design for CBC. “Our vision is an open, flexible, and amenity-rich building that will attract and embody scientific discovery, collaboration, and environmental sustainability and wellness, unlike any building in the metro area. Additionally, this development will further support the use envisioned in the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan.”
Nestled within the heart of Boulder and within walking distance to RTD’s Boulder Junction Depot Square Station, the location provides access to public transit, bike trails, open space, and views of the mountains.
The grounds will feature a solar canopy over a permeable, tree-lined parking lot designed to flex and host events. A rain and pollinator garden will offer reprieve from the lab environment throughout the day and present a park-like appearance from the street.
Additional partners selected for the project include IMEG Corp, which is providing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing scopes; structural engineer Martin/Martin; and civil engineer JVA. Shen Milsom & Wilke will provide acoustics, audiovisual, and technology design. Trestle Strategy Group will serve as the project’s entitlements consultant.
The project successfully completed the concept review process before Boulder’s Planning Board. CBC will submit Site Review level plans to the City of Boulder in Q3 2022. Construction is expected to begin in Q3 2024 and expected delivery in Q2 2026.
