Celebrating its 50th anniversary as the first sentinel building overlooking the Flatirons and CU, Golden West Manor has watched the city mushroom around it.
The first of the Manor’s two towers, the iconic 11-story tower, was built in 1965—before Boulder’s 55-foot height restriction—to provide much-needed senior housing. In 1971, another 14-story tower was built, and The Mezzanine assisted-living facility was erected in 1989. The three-story Flatirons Terrace, built in 2006, added another 54 apartments to the mix. Manor residents can enjoy arts programs, theater, games, book clubs, movies and more, as well as attend a biweekly acupuncture clinic.
You must be 62 or older to reside at the Manor. If you’re shopping for a senior community, check out the open house at the Flatirons Terrace on Dec. 5 from noon-3 p.m. Meet some residents, enjoy refreshments, and see why Golden West Manor has always had one of the best Flatirons views in town.
Golden West Manor is located on Adams Circle between 28th Street and 30th Street. http://gwboulder.org/
