Developer confident new plans will fly
Karlin Real Estate, a California-based company, is redeveloping the two buildings at 1048 Pearl St. and 1023 Walnut St. in downtown Boulder. The buildings were the former home of the Boulder Daily Camera.
Karlin envisions two office buildings that would total 159,000 square feet and have space for ground floor retail, restaurants and a movie theater.
The Boulder Planning Board voted 4-to-3 to approve the project at its Sept. 13. It was Karlin's third time before the planning board.
The Landmarks Board will consider the project on Wednesday at its 6 p.m. meeting at Calvary Bible Church, 3245 Kalmia Ave. City Council also could review the project if it chooses to, according to Elaine McLaughlin, the official in the Boulder Planning Department who is overseeing the city's review of the project.
Representatives of Karlin Real Estate are confident the changes made to get the project approved by the planning board will be enough to get it through the rest of the city approval process, vice president Vicky Canto said.
"I'm not worried - I think and hope that what we demonstrated to the planning board last night was that we can successfully address their concerns and work through these issues and arrive at a design solution that meets everyone's objectives. I was very pleased with (Thursday night's) process and outcome," she said.
