Rock Creek Neighborhood In Superior Colorado

Here’s a tour for you of the Rock Creek subdivision in Superior, Colorado. Many people have gravitated towards Rock Creek in Superior as their place to call home. I’ve met folks that say they like the master-planned community, the convenience of outstanding shopping and other amenities, proximity to jobs at Interlocken and soon ConocoPhillips, and of course the easy travel via Hwy 36 to Boulder and Denver.

The town of Superior was originally founded in the late 1890’s and owes its roots to the coal mining industry.  For most of it’s recent history Superior remained home to about 250 people. It was a quiet town that most folks coming to and from Boulder on the turnpike knew of only because of the Superior/Marshal exit sign they would see approaching Davidson Mesa from the east.

Then in the late 1980’s a large portion of land which was part of Rock Creek Ranch was subdivided, eventually McCaslin road was widened going south from Marshal Road and homes began popping up.

Now the Rock Creek development, which consists of homes mostly built by Richmond American, and a few custom builders, makes up the bulk of what we now consider Superior, Colorado.

Over time, a commercial area known as Superior Marketplace came into being, and brought with it businesses like Target, Costco, Wild Oats (now Whole Foods), Sports Authority, and a selection of other retail businesses.

One of the benefits of  Rock Creek that keeps property values up and folks moving into the area is the careful planning and continued efforts of town officials to preserve the quality of life in Rock Creek. While there are some undetermined plans for the 135 or so acres along the turnpike (Hwy 36 between Denver and Boulder is often still called the Boulder Turnpike by locals), for the most part, Rock Creek is a fully developed and complete community.

Given that there isn’t a continuing supply of newly built homes, as long as demand stays strong from home buyers wanting to live in the area, the real estate market and home prices will remain strong, as they have for years.

The area includes about 2700 single family homes, approximately 1800 multi-family homes (condos and apartments), and altogether is home to about 12,000 people.

One of the big attractions for many people are the well-planned parks and open spaces, and especially the way these public lands are all so interconnected. There are almost 600 acres of parks, green spaces and open spaces in Superior, and almost 30 miles of trails. These trails connect parks such as Community Park on the South end of Rock Creek which is home to Williams Field, Purple Park on the north end of the community, and numerous pocket parks, greenbelts, tot lots and the schools and community pools.

If you want to explore your opportunities for living in Rock Creek, or are thinking about selling your home and want to talk more about your plans with me, call or email me today and we take it from there!

Old North Boulder Neighborhood Profile

(Either JavaScript is not active or you are using an old version of Adobe Flash Player. Please install the newest Flash Player.)

The area between Broadway, Folsom, Iris, and Edgewood/Balsam streets is now commonly called the Old North Boulder neighborhood.

Prior to the time that land was developed beyond Norwood, this area was North Boulder. Now with development stretching to the far reaches of the Dakota Ridge neighborhood, the Old North Boulder neighborhood is really a very central residential opportunity.

I’ve spent many days exploring on foot, the roads and paths around central Boulder, and if you do the same you’ll come to realize just how close everything is in this part of town. It’s only a few blocks between local landmarks such as Vics and Ideal Market, over to Pearl Street, or up to Salberg Park.

The two sister shopping centers, Ideal Marketplace and Community Plaza are home to many local favorites. Ideal Market has a long history that spans well beyond the age of the current shopping center, and it became an anchor for the other shops back in 1958. The Community Plaza shops on the south side of Alpine were built just two years later in 1960.

Other businesses such as Alpine Barbers, Radda Restaurant, Breadworks, Marie’s Restaurant, The Boulder Wine Merchant, and the Pekoe Sip House give residents of the Old North Boulder neighborhood a plethora of opportunity for meeting most shopping needs without much travel. What a great concept in the days of higher gas prices and strong desires to conserve natural resources.

One of those local businesses that’s been thriving in the area, The Pekoe Sip House, has a decade long history in the area. It was originally founded as the Tea Train in Longmont. After many accolades, and eventually being voted as having the Best Tea, and being the Best Tea House in the Denver Metro area in 2000, Tea Train evolved into Pekoe Sip House and moved to Boulder under the new name in 2003.

Schools that service the area include Casey Middle school, Columbine Elementary and Centennial Middle school to the north. The former Washington Elementary school which is north of Cedar Ave, and just south of the Red Arrow Condos is now part of a redevelopment plan that’s been fairly controversial.

For those not wanting to drive, and seeking public transportation, RTD offers the Skip bus line which runs up and down Broadway. If biking is your thing, don’t risk your life jousting with cars on Broadway, try 13th street; it features its own bike lane straight into the heart of downtown.

If you’re considering a move, and want to explore more of what the Old North Boulder neighborhood has for you, call or email me today to get started!
