In 2010, Koelbel and Company began shifting its focus from suburban communities to urban-lifestyle neighborhoods. The birth of Koelbel Urban Homes was no coincidence, occurring soon after Carl Koelbel joined Koelbel and Company. The grandson of the company's founder and the son of the current president and CEO, Carl had recently graduated from the University of Colorado with a master’s degree in real estate and business administration. He also spent two years at the Urban Land Institute in Washington, D.C., studying the effects of infrastructure on land use. He arrived on the scene with a working knowledge and a viable vision for urban development along the Front Range.
"We're proud to serve the lifestyle and location desires of a new generation of homebuyers in neighborhoods such as LoHi and RiNo in Denver and NoBo in Boulder." - Carl Koelbel
Carl is a strong advocate for the company's initial in-fill projects: "We're proud to serve the lifestyle and location desires of a new generation of homebuyers in neighborhoods such as LoHi and RiNo in Denver and NoBo in Boulder."

About Koelbel and Company
Now in its seventh decade, Koelbel and Company is the longest operating family-owned real estate development firm in the region. A testament to this longevity is an impressive slate of developments stretching from Vail and Winter Park to Louisville and Boulder, as well as across metropolitan Denver.
The firm was founded in 1952 by then 26-year-old Walter A. Koelbel. Through the years, Koelbel has been the driver for some of the most notable residential, retail and mountain resort developments along the Front Range.
Under the leadership of Walter A. "Buz" Koelbel, Jr., since 1985, the company continues to place its indelible mark on the Colorado landscape, blending ageless values with pacesetting design.
Buz Koelbel believes the company has been privileged to participate in the evolution of Colorado real estate. "I call it a good start," he said, "because our focus is always on the future."
That philosophy has kept Koelbel and Company in step with current market demands while building a legacy of unmatched customer satisfaction. It was also the impetus for the firm's latest success, Koelbel Urban Homes.
