Sprouts Farmer’s Market i
s taking root at Stapleton’s Central Park Station on the University of Colorado A Line that links Union Station to Denver International Airport.
The 30,000-square-foot store, being developed by D.H. Friedman Properties LLC, is projected to open in fall 2018 in the 3500 block of Central Park Boulevard, just one block from the train station. The Sprouts store will be located on the block immediately south of the transit-oriented development recently announced by Forest City Stapleton Inc.
, master developer of the Stapleton community.
“Sprouts will be a great addition to Forest City’s visionary plans for Central Park Station further solidifying its position as an exciting new alternative to downtown, both for urban-type residential and commercial opportunities,” says David Friedman of D.H. Friedman.
Friedman also is developing about 110 mixed-income condominiums and 12,000 square feet of additional retail space in the surrounding block, bordered on the north by 36th Avenue and on the west by Uinta Street.
Denver City Councilman Chris Herndon called the Sprouts store one of the “key building blocks” that will lead to the successful development of one of Denver’s largest transit-oriented developments.
“When we think of TOD, we want it to include a mix of amenities folks want and need to access in their daily lives,” Herndon says. “The addition of Sprouts in this location is a benefit to people utilizing the A Line, as well as to neighborhood residents.”
