A perk to working with talented developers is getting a heads up on some of the prime living spots in and around the Denver/Boulder area. We like to highlight our real estate clients, not only because we’d like to own a home from each one, but because we know many of you (and your friends) could benefit from seeing what’s out there.

Today’s real estate spotlight is one of Boulder’s Best Selling Communities in 2009, The Peloton. What we love about The Peloton is the unique community feel. Homeowners can literally work, dine, play, exercise, and socialize within steps of their front door.

Located off Arapahoe Avenue between 33rd and 38th Street, The Peloton is situated in the heart of Boulder, with easy access to some of the city’s most popular hot spots, including the 29th Street Entertainment District, Pearl Street Mall, and the University of Colorado Main Campus.

The community’s central location lends itself to effortless travel with shopping, dining and entertainment only walking-distance away. All homeowners also receive a free EcoPass, included in the Home Owners Association (HOA) fee, which provides unlimited usage and access to the RTD bus services.

Those looking to bike their way around town can explore the vast Boulder valley through an interconnected bike path system, which has a direct link to The Peloton’s property. Also included in the HOA is access to the Community’s very own fleet of mountain bikes, which can be checked out and used for any occasion.

Of course, the options don’t end at transportation. Homes at The Peloton are priced from the low $200s to $500s, with lofts and 1-, 2-, and 3- bedroom floor plans. Straying away from cookie-cutter configurations, the designers created more than 60 different alternatives from which to choose, with the intention of appealing to the broad interests of a community with diverse lifestyles. All of the homes offer spacious bedrooms, luxurious bathrooms, walk-in closets, and in many cases, extra amenities like fireplaces, storage closets and laundry rooms. Every configuration also includes a patio or balcony, and most of the homes have spectacular views of the mountains.

Not only do homeowners benefit from ample day-to-day living space, they also have access to The Peloton’s common spaces inside the 22,000 square-foot community center. This state-of-the-art center includes a 6,000 square-foot fitness club, 22-seat movie theatre with leather reclining seats, and a game room with billiards, shuffle table and flat-screen TVs. Residents also have access to Boulder’s only year-round rooftop swimming pool and heated deck that includes two hot tubs, barbecue grills and spectacular views of the Flatirons. One of the many benefits to community life is the extended living space located outside the four walls of a home.

For a tour of The Peloton’s homes and Community Center, you can visit the Sales Center Friday-Monday from 11:00 a.m – 5:00 p.m., or call 303.457.5230.

We also encourage you to check out the website (www.thepeloton.com) for more information about the location, lifestyle, and residences of The Peloton.

The Stasko Agency has had an active summer, to say the least! With new clients, new ventures, and even a few new team-members, we’ve been busy finding opportunities to grow and expand our reach.

Here are some of the highlights!

Client Successes:

  • Cocktails, Cars, and a Cause, which raises funds for the Love Hope Strength Foundation, was hosted at Root Down on July 30th. Over 200 people came out for the event!

  • Root Down’s superstar mixologist, Anika Zappe, brought in some publicity herself, winning two separate cocktail contests. She was dubbed “Bombay Sapphire’s Most Inspired Bartender” for her drink, The Garden Party, which can now be found on Root Down’s drink menu. She also took first place in the 42 Below vodka contest at Theorie for her cocktail named The Casting Couch.
  • The Peloton has been rolling at full speed, with 18 sales in six weeks, a new sales center location off Arapahoe, and a third retailer slated to open this winter.
  • The Bookery Nook hosted a successful Tennyson Showcase event, which highlighted the eclectic independent shops lining the up-and-coming street. Attendees enjoyed a wine-tasting by WineJester and hors d’oeuvres by House Bar and Restaurant, which are only steps from the Nook.

Upcoming Events:

  • Historic Hotel Colorado will hold the 6th Annual Devereux Polo Cup on August 29th and 30th in the beautiful Glenwood Springs. Packages are available starting at $149 which includes an overnight stay and entry to the Match and the “Meet the Players” Gala event.

  • Frontview 40 celebrates its Grand Reveal on Thursday, September 17th from 4-8pm at 2650 Front View Crescent in Denver. With 31 flats and 9 townhome style residences, Frontview 40 offers 1, 2, and 3 bedroom homes ranging from the upper 100s to the upper 500s. No rsvp needed, just show up. Make sure to check out the unbelievable views from the rooftop deck. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served.

New Faces:

  • The lovely and talented Brenna Shelsta joined The Stasko Agency for the month of July to offer some support to our energetic schedules. We wish she could have stayed longer, but she’s off to Sweden to study for the next few years! Can anyone say company vacation? She will certainly be missed.
  • We’ve also recently partnered with Dan Urmann, an experienced sales/marketing specialist with niche for business development and bringing new products/companies to market. With Dan on our side, we’ve had the opportunity to work on several new product launches. Of course we can’t tell you all the details quite yet, but we can say the process has been both rigorous and rewarding. Expect to hear more about these ventures as we get closer to launch.

Things have really started rolling this summer at The Stasko Agency, particularly with one of our newest development clients, The Peloton.

When we first met Cindy from The Peloton, she struck us a great client to work with–organized, timely and ready to move forward. To our luck, the development itself shares these same great qualities! Fully funded upfront, the developer was able to create a succinct plan as to how each phase of this multi-million dollar community would play out. The first phase was completed in August of 2008, and is 60% sold out to date. This phase included 190 luxury condominium homes, an amenity rich community center, 4 retail spaces, 2 restaurant spaces and a dog park.

The Peloton is located off Arapahoe Avenue between 33rd and 38th Streets in Boulder, and has homes ranging from 750 sq. ft – 1,900 sq. ft. in the form of lofts and 1-, 2- and 3- bedroom floor plans. Expect prices between $289,000 – $849,000, with the penthouse coming in at $2.2M.

One of the most impressive buildings of The Peloton is its 22,000 sq. ft. Community Center which includes a 6,000 square-foot fitness club, 22-seat theatre with leather reclining seats, and a game room with billiards, shuffle table and flat-screen TVs. Residents can also enjoy Boulder’s only year-round rooftop swimming pool and heated deck which includes two hot tubs, bar-b-que grills and spectacular views of the Flatirons. (Sign US up!)

The Stasko Agency heads up to Boulder to see the development in person this week and we can’t wait! For more information about The Peloton, be sure to check out their website at www.thepeloton.com.
