Topping-Off Ceremony at Bustop Apartments

Topping-Off Ceremony at Bustop Apartments

Thistle Communities hosted a traditional topping-off ceremony on June 20 at its newest affordable-housing development at 4871 Broadway in Boulder, the former location of the iconic Bustop Gentlemen’s Club. The event celebrated the building of 53 new affordable housing units in the city. Thistle was joined at the event by the development’s general contractor, Burke Builders, RHAP architecture + planning, plus many community members, local dignitaries and staff from Representative Joe Neguse’s office.

The topping-off ceremony, a tradition that celebrates the placement of the final beam at the top of a structure during a building’s construction phase, included participants signing the girder and then watching the girder being placed.

Bustop Apartments Development Partners

The development team of Allison Management, Thistle Communities and AGR Development purchased the property, now called Bustop Apartments, in April 2016. It received funding from Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, National Development Council, ANB Bank and the City of Boulder.

The Bustop Apartments will be completed by January 2020. In addition to 53 one-bedroom and studio units, the development includes a community room and community art space. One hundred percent of the rents will service households that earn 60 percent of the average monthly income (AMI) or under.

Thistle intends to partner with Boulder’s North Boulder NOBO Art District on community events in its public spaces.
