Downtown Boulder once again could be home to a movie theater.
The latest redevelopment plans for the former Daily Camera property include a 13,000-square-foot art-house cinema in addition to the proposed retail, restaurant and office uses that would fill the proposed 160,000-square-foot, four-story building off 11th and Pearl streets, according to site review documents submitted Monday.
“This redevelopment recognizes the importance of an active and economically strong downtown as the concentrated center of the city of Boulder and the associated social interaction of residents as they live, work and play,” officials with property owner Karlin Real Estate wrote in the site review application. “This development is both the end of the Pearl Street Mall and the beginning of (Pearl Street’s) West End.
“The proposed uses are appropriate in this transition: office to accommodate a demand for large floor plate office space and the associated increase in employees downtown, retail to continue the Pearl Street experience and a planned theater use, consistent with the entertainment function of the West End neighborhood.”
