Strategy & Entitlements

Roadmapping your concept to completion. 


Reve Boulder

Trestle is leading the entitlement process for the 6-acre redevelopment project in Boulder, CO. Concept and site review submittals as well as presentations to City Council and Planning Board have just been the tip of the iceberg for this complex entitlement project. With 244 units and over 130,000 SF commercial space, Reve will be a community for all of Boulder.

Trestle Strategy Group is an invaluable partner in the development process. With in-depth knowledge of land planning, building code, local politics, real estate marketing, and graphic design, Danica Powell and Cole Meleyco exceeded my expectations at every turn. I wouldn’t consider working on another development project without them.

Community Engagement

Building consensus around your development goals.

Ponderosa Mobile Home Park

Following the 2013 flood that devastated much of Boulder County, Trestle led an annexation and technical feasibility study that included significant community engagement and outreach. An extensive community engagement program was executed focusing on residents input as well as management collaboration. Trestle continues to guide the City of Boulder through this technically challenging and community engaged project. 

We at the City of Boulder are incredibly fortunate to have Danica leading the Trestle team on the Ponderosa Stabilization Program project. She has a strong dedication to and vision for this project that hinges on authentic engagement and transparency. I don’t believe you will find a team on the Front Range with greater breadth and depth of practice in this area of community engagement and technical feasibility.

Boulder Fire-Rescue Department's Fire Station No. 3 and Administration Building

Trestle analyzed the City of Boulder's second busiest fire station to identify the future spacial and operational needs of the fire department and service coverage needs of the Boulder community. A recommendation to relocate the station was presented to City Council at the conclusion of Trestle's work.


Our approach explores potential space programming solutions and identifies a “preferred strategy and roadmap” for the next ten to twenty years.

We identify opportunities, adjacencies, and efficiencies for improved operations.

We recognize the site improvements and cost implications with development code requirements.

We create scenario comparisons to help your organization make a confident decision.


Property Review and Yield Studies

Uncovering the gritty details.


1945, 1955, and 1965 28th St.

Trestle's recent 4-week property review analysis of 3.5 acres in central Boulder helped our client identify the site's long-term value, building opportunities, site limitations, and municipal code allowances. Extensive research was conducted to ensure previously known and unknown information was presented in a clear and easily digestible format. 

Trestle Strategy Group is one of the very few consultants who fully understand the intricacies of Boulder’s byzantine land use regulations, as well as the political backdrop that often informs land use decisions in Boulder. We have used Trestle for a couple of projects and found their work to be thorough, accurate, timely and a great value. I would absolutely recommend Trestle for land use and development consulting services.

Affordable Housing

Facilitating housing development for all.


WestView Apartments

Trestle helped facilitate the entitlement, financing, and development of the 34-unit affordable housing development in North Boulder. Targeted at families earning below 50% AMI, the project is comprised of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units. The project also features a 570 square foot retail space that recently opened as the NoBo Corner Library.

I deeply appreciate the talent and dedication Trestle brought to working on a high stakes, politically charged project on a very tight timeline. They were highly creative and consistently went the extra mile to make sure the team put our best effort forward and maximized all the possible resources and strategies available to us.

Owner Representative 

Execution guided by your goals.


Boulder Wellness Center

Trestle managed the site selection, design, and construction processes for a 30,000 square foot wellness center in Boulder, CO. Initial work included site analysis, cost estimation, extensive financial modeling, feasibility analysis, and alternatives evaluation. Trestle provided full service project management and owner’s representation services to MHP and managed all aspects of the design and construction of the facility.

I have worked with Danica for close to two years now on our project to remodel a 30,000 square foot, partially occupied building in Boulder to create a Wellness Center for Mental Health Partners. Her expertise and passion has been nothing but outstanding throughout the entire process. Her local knowledge of everything from dealing with the City, construction and architectural knowledge, and budget tracking to current and past building regulation has been invaluable to help us keep our project on track and within budget.
