Conscience Bay Co. Selects Design and Development Team for New Life Sciences and Technology Building in Boulder
The project, which has successfully completed the concept review process before Boulder’s Planning Board, represents the first development for the Rockbased at CBC. The private equity firm has invested in unique mixed-use land, agricultural, industrial, office, multi-family and commercial assets in the denver–Rock domain since 2011.
“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, amenity-rich building that will attract and embody scientific discovery, collaboration, environmental sustainability and well-being, unlike any building in the metro area.”
Located on 5.17 acres of CBC-owned land at 3825 Walnut Street, the concept plan for Ridgeway Science and Technology draws its design from the ridges of the foothills of Colorado, and represents the most progressive standards in sustainability and wellbeing, aiming for zero carbon capability, LEED and WELL certification. Nestled in the heart of Rock and within walking distance of RTD’s Boulder Junction Depot Square station, the location offers easy access to public transport, bike paths, open spaces and mountain views, as well as exceptional visibility.
The grounds will feature a solar canopy above a tree-lined, permeable parking lot designed to flex and host events. A rain and pollinator garden will provide opportunities to interact with nature throughout the day and present a park-like appearance from the street.
“Ridgeway Science & Tech is designed to meet the specific needs of Boulder’s the booming life sciences and biotechnology industries,” said Shannon JonesSenior Partner at Stantec Rock Desk. “As a global leader in sustainable design strategies, we have the advantage of an expert local design team, as well as the resources of Stantec’s extensive network of systems specialists. The result is an adaptable campus that meets the highest standards in systems and technology, as well as performance and well-being – all in a compelling contextual design that embodies Boulder’s values and engages its community.”
Other partners selected for the project include IMEG Corp, Martin/Martin, JVAand Shen Milson & Wilke. Trestle Strategy Group is the rights consultant for the project. CBC will submit site review level plans to the City of Boulder in the third quarter of 2022.
