Newlands Neighborhood Boulder Colorado

Location: 

From roughly just north of Hawthorn Ave, the Newlands neighborhood stretches down to Alpine Ave.

The eastern border is Broadway, and it’s western edge is generally considered 3rd or 4th street but essentially the open space land against the hogback is what terminates the Newlands west side.

My Take On This Neighborhood:

The Newlands neighborhood, still remains a very popular, and high-demand neighborhood. While prices remain stable, they have not increased, and in fact some

of the higher priced homes on the western edges have actually decreased in market value based on data from 2012. Trends I’ve seen, at time of publishing this, early 2013, show it is a great time for buyers. Be ready to see prices potentially increase this year

in response to low supply and high demand.

History: 

The Red Zinger Bicycle Classic held criterion races in the ‘70’s which encircled North Boulder Park and consumed the Newlands Neighborhood.

The Red Zinger was founded by local businessman, and cycling legend Mo Seigel, founder of Celestial Seasonings Tea.

What’s New Today: 

Pops and scrapes, tear-downs, renovations, remodels…

Newlands is a hot-bed of activity for those that want a large home near one

of Boulder’s largest parks, up against the foothills, with access to hiking/biking trails and all the activity of downtown Boulder thrown in. It’s been one of the hottest, high-demand neighborhood

for years.

Local Highlights: 

The average age of most residents hovers between about 35 to 45 years old, but there are an increasing number of families with children making Boulder their home in recent years. Walk to Vics, Ideal Market, Pearl Street, Breadworks, and Boulder Wine Merchant.
