Developer David Friedman has offered some additional details about his plans for the transit-oriented development (TOD) a block south of the Central Park Rail Station on the land he recently purchased from Forest City. At the Stapleton Zoning and Planning meeting in September, Friedman shared the rendering and site plan shown above for The Village at Central Park Station—and said he hopes to begin construction of the mixed-use project in early 2018. Project components include:
- A 30,000-square-foot Sprouts grocery story.
- Two retail and personal service buildings totaling 12,000 square feet at the northeast corner of the site near the CPB and 36th Ave. intersection. Uses could include restaurants and personal service establishments like salons, a fitness center and dry cleaner.
- A five-story, 120-unit condominium project at the northwest corner of the parcel. Ten percent of the units would be affordable under the terms of Forest City’s development agreement with the city. The price of the market-rate units will range from the $200,000s up to $600,000. Most of the units would be one to two bedrooms. Resident and visitor parking would be located in a parking structure wrapped on three sides by the condominium units.
- Twelve condominium townhomes fronting Uinta Street. They would be two to three stories in height and separated from the Sprouts parking lot by a screening wall.
- Friedman said it is unusual to have a Sprouts building located mid-block and fronting on a major street, suggesting their acceptance of these constraints is a measure of the firm’s interest in locating in Stapleton. He said the site overall well exceeds the minimum city parking requirements.
