Table Mesa Neighborhood Boulder Colorado


Nestled at the base of the foothills, The Table Mesa Neighborhood lies in between Boulder Mountain Parks, and the northern parts of Flatirons Vista and the Greenbelt Plateau.

Table Mesa is located just west of Broadway in South Boulder. The community is also home to a thriving commercial district. A local favorite, the Southern Sun brew pub serves up pints of local beer, while Table Mesa Shopping Center, one of Boulder’s most popular destinations for locals in the area, offers a wide selection of regional and chain retailers including King Soopers. Don’t miss a new one: Under the Sun Eatery & Taphouse.

My Take On This Neighborhood: 

There are still many great values in the general Table Mesa neighborhood area, depending on your budget. I’m still noticing many homes being rebuilt, updated, and improved as the neighborhood continues to trend towards owneroccupied homes, many of them with children. Speaking of children, I think while it is indeed a diverse neighborhood, Bear Creek and Mesa Elementary, Southern Hills Middle School, and Fairview High School are a draw for many parent, including quite a few of those who “open enroll” their kids into the area public schools from other neighborhoods.


In 1962, The annexation of the 575-acre Table Mesa subdivision was approved by the City Council.

In 1964, Building permits worth $3.3 million were issued for 300 new dwellings in Table Mesa. First residents moved into area in May of 1963. Construction for Southern Hills Junior High School also began.

During the late 1970’s and through the 1980’s a large part of Table Mesa was known for it’s burgeoning student population as many of the more modest homes were rented.

As property values increased through the 1990’s and 2000’s, many areas of Table Mesa which were once looking a bit run-down, began to see new life as homes were purchased by owner occupants, and many young people and families began to migrate back into Table Mesa.

What’s New Today: 

Table Mesa still includes a cache of entry-level priced homes in certain areas which are quickly being purchased, when they become available for sale, as buyers continue to be attracted to this part of Boulder, and are especially drawn to finding reasonably priced homes ready for renovation and remodeling.
