Smart, Sustainable Landscapes
Boulevard One capitalizes on every opportunity to be water-wise and to tap existing resources.
North of Lowry Boulevard, we’re preserving 33 mature trees already on the property, transplanting 23 more and adding 157 new trees, increasing shade at Boulevard One by 250% over time. It’s estimated that approximately 60,000 square feet of manicured turf grass will reduce water consumption by 50%, and 130,000 square feet of irrigated shortgrass will help Boulevard One remain green using little water. When the north neighborhoods are fully developed, almost a mile of sidewalks will interconnect Boulevard One’s greenery, dotted with over 3,000 shrubs, perennials and ornamental grasses.
Look What’s Happening Along Monaco and First Avenue
The Wildlife Weave art installation is underway on the berm along Monaco Parkway; watch for more trees, shrubs, grasses and plants to support local birdlife. First Avenue is also getting spruced up with new street trees, sidewalks and bike paths.
Plans for Six New Parks Finalized
Boulevard One’s many parks and open spaces are taking shape! In addition to the paths, art and plantings along Monaco and First Avenue, Boulevard One will be home to shady Kiva Park to the east, Center Park with perennial gardens and lawn, Adventure Park for exploring boulders and a cottonwood grove, and intimate Triangle Park.
For more details, check out the Northern Parks Overview.
Three more parks — five-acre Community Park, a neighborhood park and natural open space — are planned for the southern part of Boulevard One. Look for those plans in the coming months.
