A Denver-based real estate equity firm who recently purchased a 30,548 square-foot office building in Gunbarrel was attracted to the property because of its close proximity to the workforce in Longmont, an article in the Boulder County Business Report stated.
According to Bob Cardwell, of Star Mesa Properties LLC, the location of the building — which makes it attractive to Longmont-area businesses looking to lease office space — intrigued the firm enough to make it their first foray into the Boulder market. The building, which currently houses four businesses, was constructed in the 90s and will continue to be managed by the group that built it.
Gunbarrel is a census designated area of Boulder County and, as of 2010, had nearly 9,500 residents. Unincorporated as a town, it is generally considered part of Boulder, though residents of Gunbarrel may have Boulder, Longmont or Niwot addresses. The median income of those living in Gunbarrel, at more than $80,000 a year, is significantly higher than the state’s median income of $55,387.
In addition to the office building purchased by Star Mesa Properties, Gunbarrel is also home to a number of corporate headquarters including Kelty — the manufacturer of outdoor apparel — and the well-known tea company, Celestial Seasonings. The area is also the location of the Boulder Country Club and golf course, and is surrounded by open space.
In the real estate world, perhaps one of the truest and most often-used statements is: “Location, location, location.” This is accurate both in the context of a company looking to purchase an office building close to a thriving business community and in the context of individuals relocating to the area for work.
