Situated in downtown Boulder’s East Whittier neighborhood, 27Pine is a new condominium project by Coburn Development that’s designed to hit a sweet spot in the Boulder real estate market with a perfect balance of luxury, accessibility, and value.
Though construction is not slated for completion until December 2020, three homes are already under contract, according to John McElveen, also a Realtor with RE/MAX of Boulder. For a limited time, up to three more home buyers are eligible for valuable incentives.
“The offer includes a $10,000 credit toward finish upgrades,” says McElveen. “Additionally, early purchasers will enjoy their pick of prime unit location.”
While new home construction is trending toward multi-level dwellings, Coburn is taking a different approach with 27Pine. The 13-unit building is a small-scale, 3-story structure, designed with sound proportions and warm finishes. Homes feature single-level living with elevator access, open floor plans with plenty of natural light, enhanced flow and convenience.
“Open flow and light-filled spatial factors make a home feel good, and ensure its timelessness,” explains Gribbon.
Located in the tree-lined, historic East Whittier neighborhood, residents will enjoy a quiet location while relishing the in-and-out ease of central Boulder. With its modern clean lines, covered parking and a community patio bordering Pine Street, the property fits right in with its residential setting, giving homeowners a chance to enjoy quiet, green spaces.
“27Pine is a natural extension of Whittier, where we got our start renovating homes 35 years ago,” says John Koval, principal at Coburn Development. “It’s simply a great tree-lined pocket that is accessible and quiet while being close to the action.”
East Whittier’s established residential district is both close and not-too-close to the best things Boulder has to offer.
“It reminds us of how, in a larger city, you might turn a corner and find yourself in a lovely residential neighborhood, where the trees and architectural mix of homes are both appealing and intriguing,” says McElveen. “For residents who enjoy walking and biking, 27Pine will feel both connected and perfectly detached. Just off the well-beaten paths of Pearl and 28th Streets, it’s a lovely, tranquil neighborhood that feels a world away.”
27Pine’s radius includes Whole Foods, the Twenty Ninth Street Mall, Colorado Athletic Club and The Dairy Center for the Arts. RTD transit stations are just blocks away, as is the Google campus. A few more blocks away on East Pearl Street, Boulder favorites like Pizzeria Locale, Snooze, The Laughing Goat, and Frasca Food & Wine are easy to get to.
Despite its proximity to so much good stuff, staying in at 27Pine is also a great option. Coburn has taken care to address details like systems, storage, security, and convenience. The second and third floors are accessible by elevator. The air, water, and energy systems incorporate cutting-edge technology and high efficiency. Many homes include flex spaces that can be used for work, hobbies, and gear. Other amenities include an electric car charging station, a dog and bike-washing station, and options for exterior storage.
“27Pine is designed to put people first.” says Pete Weber, the award-winning Coburn architect and chief designer of 27Pine. “Our design inspiration starts and ends with the living experience of the homeowner. We delve into the end-user’s experience not just in design, but in planning and building as well. That’s why 27Pine fits so well within its surroundings, lives well with useful indoor and outdoor spaces, and functions smartly with systems that are reliable and headache-free.”
The building offers one- and two-bedroom floor plans. Every unit boasts nine-foot ceilings and large windows that maximize mountain views to create light-filled, airy spaces. Each residence also features a private covered deck where you can enjoy the outdoors even when you feel like staying in your slippers.
Whether you’re an empty nester, young professional, or a part-time Boulderite, 27Pine has something for you.
“This building is smartly designed to appeal to a variety of buyers,” says McElveen. “From empty nesters seeking a come and go lifestyle, to millennials working for one of Boulder’s tech companies, 27Pine offers an ideal solution.”
McElveen and Gribbon call the property a “lock and leave oasis” that allows residents to leave home with peace of mind, whether walking to work for the day or spending a month away.
Coburn’s attention to detail includes stylish, functional finishes. To create a comfortable, modern feel, finish materials include quartz, wood, and steel. Kitchens and bathrooms showcase sleek modern cabinetry with a choice of light or dark color schemes. Residents will enjoy the clean look of five-inch plank engineered wood floors with a light or dark stain option. Oversize windows offer exceptional views, ranging from the southern vistas of the Flatirons, and Mount Sanitas to the north.
While there is so much to love about the property, including the location, the thoughtful design, and the amenities, 27Pine also offers another special feature — value.
“The overarching value proposition of 27Pine comes back to its sweet spot,” explains Gribbon. “These homes are generously spaced, light-filled, and beautifully located. In relative terms, 27Pine is exceptionally well priced.”
Coburn is committed to creating great places that enhance the lives of those who use them. As a small, local company, Coburn has focused on smart development in towns like Boulder, Crested Butte, and Fort Collins for nearly four decades. Boulder projects include 1505 Pearl Street, the Steelyards, Nickel Flats at Boulder Junction, and many more.
“Coburn’s goal has never been to maximize profit over people’s experience,”says Koval. “Instead, we focus first on the people who use our buildings, and that makes all the difference. 27Pine will reflect this thoughtfulness, too”
