Prospect Neighborhood 

prospect neighborhood longmont coThe Prospect Neighborhood located in Longmont CO is known for its wide sidewalks connecting homes and parks with shops and offices. This walk-ability between home and the services required to maintain the modern lifestyle make this community the living definition of New Urbanism.

The Prospect Neighborhood will eventually be home to 585 units on 385 lots. Home types include higher-end detached houses, town and courtyard homes, apartments above detached garages, and live/work units. Nearly all the single family houses will have a live/work space above the garage. Homes range in price from Boulder’s average sales price of $285,000 to over $500,000+. In addition, 10% of the homes are designated ‘permanently affordable’ by Boulder County guidelines. There are a variety of public amenities including restaurants and a gym. Mature trees have been planted along streets and in the town’s parks to provide the shade and privacy of an established community. 

“We’re building something that when you are outside the exterior, you feel like you are a part of something, and that you enjoy the experience of walking outside. The new urbanism we have here is pedestrian-oriented,” Says the developer John ‘Kiki’ Wallace.longmont co “The project connects to other areas. It doesn’t just dead-end into itself, and knock back everything else. It is part of the com  mutiny. It’s accessible.”

What makes Prospect Neighborhood Longmont CO different from other suburban high-end developments is its emphasis on social interaction, promulgated in part through its public amenities. In addition to 9 parks, the area includes a community pool. The shopping areas already have coffee shops, bagels, a rib house and Mexican restaurant and more. There is also a barber shop and a platies studio all within a short walk from the neighboring houses.

In 1996 Prospect Neighborhood Longmont CO won a Governor’s Smart Growth Award for its innovative alternative to suburban sprawl. This makes Prospect one of the first communities in Boulder to incorporate the New Urbanism philosophy. During the downturn in the market when all of Longmont was feeling the pinch in low demand, Prospect was the section of town that was still in demand. Now that the economy has turned around we are seeing and expansion in the number of businesses opening their doors within the community. This speaks to the power of good design and the feeling of Prospect Neighborhood Longmont CO the neighborhood provides.
