SPARKwest was developed by Element Properties to create 45 permanently affordable multi-family apartments in Boulder, Colorado. It was developed in conjunction with Sutherland Park (SPARK), as an 11-acre mixed-use, mixed-income, and transit-oriented community in central Boulder. The SPARKwest neighborhood offers housing for workforce residents and families in a location that enables a walkable and connected lifestyle. The project is located within Boulder Junction, a 160-acre mixed-use area plan to be developed by private property owners, the City of Boulder, and the Regional Transportation District (RTD).

SPARKWest includes 26 two-bedroom apartments and 19 three-bedroom apartments. All apartments are green and solar-powered; there’s a washer and dryer in every apartment and all utilities (except cable) are included in rent.
