Explore your backyard.
Boulevard One’s decidedly urban setting still satisfies your love of the outdoors. Neighborhood paths dotted with eclectic art wind through a creatively designed community park, pocket parks and the public plaza. You’ll discover thought-provoking public art, intimate benches, comfy nooks and light-filled corners around every turn. At Boulevard One, it’s easy to step outside for an ample helping of people watching, latte lingering, dog walking, e-reading, friend meeting and remote working.
With a variety of engaging parks and open space throughout Boulevard One, residents will have plenty of ways to take in the sunshine. When fully developed, almost two miles of sidewalks will interconnect Boulevard One’s greenery, dotted with over 5,000 shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses. By preserving 39 mature existing trees and adding 350 new trees, Boulevard One’s shade will increase by 250% over time. It’s estimated that approximately four acres of manicured turf grass will reduce water consumption by 50%, and about 5.5 acres of irrigated shortgrass will help Boulevard One remain green using little water.
The 5.5-acre community park fosters a sense of community, with new trees, art, play area and natural space. The park is a social and recreational center for Boulevard One. The finishing touches include paths, shrubs, perennials and grass.
This .8-acre neighborhood park in the southwest corner of Boulevard One showcases the community’s heritage by integrating the Air Force medallion that once adorned an Air Force administration building. Engraved quotes in a tiered sandstone wall will flank the medallion and reflect the diverse voices of citizens who helped transform Lowry Air Force Base into a new community. Scheduled for completion later this year, the park also honors the original farmland by featuring kitchen herbs, berries, apple trees and picnic tables.

Neighborhood Mobility Hub
The mixed-use center at Boulevard One will include a mobility hub to accommodate some 25% of people who arrive without their private vehicles. The hub will include bike racks, scooter parking, car share parking and a meeting spot for Uber/Lyft or a future shuttle. The “Flight Ride” art installation will be repurposed as a meeting spot or waiting area. Generous sidewalks will provide safe pedestrian access on all sides and within the center.
The LRA consulted with Transportation Solutions, an area Transportation Management Association, with design by Norris Design and construction by Kelmore Development in collaboration with Confluent Development.
