Foothills Community

747 Cherry Ave, Boulder, Colorado 80304

Foothills is ideally situated against the brilliant backdrop of Boulder Open Space in North Boulder. Its design features architecture typical of early Boulder homes and the values of its surrounding neighborhood, a respect for the environment, a desire to support community, and an appreciation for diversity. Homes are nestled behind tree-lined streets and alleys and offer front doors with porches or decks and small yard areas. Each is oriented toward neighborhood interaction. Bike and pedestrian paths interconnect throughout the community and lead either toward breathtaking trails or North Boulder's growing commercial center. All accept both dogs and cats, maximum of two total.

Intimate in design, seven unique floor plans are arranged in five building styles, including studio-type carriage houses, 2 and 3 bedroom duplexes, townhomes and apartments.

Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)

Since this property has received funding in part through the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, a certain number of units are set aside for lower income households. Households must earn either less than 50% or 60% of the area median income (depending on the set-aside option chosen by the property owner) to qualify for these units. Rents in these units are capped at a maximum of 30% of the set-aside area median income (adjusted for unit size). Some rental units in this property may not be subject to LIHTC and therefore have higher rents and no maximum household income requirement.
