Anthem worked with John Kirkland on an exciting and complicated historic reuse project in the lower Chautauqua neighborhood of Boulder, Colorado. The project, which reinforced and re-supported a two-wing, early 1900s masonry building and installed a new full-depth basement under much of the structure while leaving the above ground building in place, provides a beautiful mid-density housing option for the neighborhood. The building tells an important part of Boulder’s story and as such, was landmarked prior to construction beginning. Anthem and their architectural partners, ESA, supported John’s vision of transforming a long-neglected 100-year-old fraternity building into appropriate, state-of-the-art housing that can be celebrated for artfully serving the community for the next century.
