It is widely recognized that Boulder is a great place to live but the neighborhoods in Boulder are a bit hard to characterize. Boulder was developed over time in a piece-meal fashion. The result is that many of the neighborhoods are only a few hundred homes in size. It is common to have two adjacent neighborhoods developed at different times and have completely different characters and price ranges.
While this report is not comprehensive, it will give the reader valuable information from which to start understanding the real estate market in Boulder. Below is the official City of Boulder sub-community map that shows Boulder split into nine different segments.
East Boulder is one of the city’s primary employment centers. Much of the area is industrial, with many companies specializing in the scientific, research, and technology sectors, as well as more traditional industrial uses such as building contractors, warehousing and small-scale manufacturing. Major employers in East Boulder include Ball Aerospace, Foothills Hospital and the University Center for Atmospheric Research Foothills Lab. A new facility for AstraZeneca is being built on Airport Blvd and the Boulder Municipal Airport and Boulder County Jail area also in this area. The eastern half of the Boulder Junction area is also located in East Boulder. Several greenways provide excellent connections through the area and to the west and south.
Kings Ridge and Noble Park are the two residential areas in addition to a mobile home park called East Central.
