Project Narrative

Boulder Commons is the largest multitenant net-zero energy (NZE) project in the U.S. and among the first multitenant buildings in the U.S. to achieve net zero energy. This project proves that NZE-leased buildings can have a compelling value proposition for the developer, landlord, and tenant—providing a replicable model for the industry to scale cost-effective and high-performance leased spaces.
