WELCOME TO GOOSE CREEK COMMUNITY LAND TRUST


DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS

INVESTMENT | 750 North Street
Recycle 1956 Duplex, Construct 8 Permanently Affordable Condos in single family home footprint

OVERVIEW
Goose Creek Community Land Trust is seeking investors to purchase an equity share in its mixed-income Boulder condo project. Investments beginning at $5,000 may achieve up to a 150% return over 3 years.

PROJECT DESCRIPTION
To support its overall goals of creating highly sustainable and affordable housing within the City of Boulder, Goose Creek Community Land Trust is working with a group of local investors and potential residents who have purchased 750 North Street for a proposed affordable condo project. Final project scope for 750 North St will depend on whether the property is determined to be eligible for a density bonus allowing for eight condo units—the preferred option. Should the density bonus not be allowed, alternative options are to hold and rent the existing duplex (estimated 10% annual return after sale in year 10) or to scrape and build a new single family home with an accessory unit (83% after three years).

This project will anchor the evolving North St. Neighborhood Community and EcoDistrict. Goose Creek will own the land beneath the property to maintain long-term affordability. Private car ownership and parking will be limited to two on-street parking spots and two onsite. Residents will pay a monthly amenity fee to the Land Trust for the land lease and for a neighborhood low-carbon transportation program (electric bike and car share and discounted RTD ecopasses).

BOULDER LAND USE POLICIES INHIBIT DIVERSITY

He would have been brutally frank that the city is still not as diverse as it needs to be, and in part it is because of political decisions made that have escalated the cost of housing tremendously so that it limits who can afford to live in the city, which impacts the ability and the potential for diversity.
