The Streets at SouthGlenn Announces Colorado Grand Opening
One of Nation’s only Mixed-Use Centers to Open in Centennial, CO on August 28, 2009
CENTENNIAL, CO. August, 25 2009 – On Friday, August 28, The Streets at SouthGlenn, one of the country’s only large scale, mixed-use projects to open this year, will celebrate its grand opening festivities with the public. This three day celebration marks the completion of a historic project and sets a new benchmark for collaborative re-development. All weekend long, shoppers can experience “life on The Streets” exploring new retailers and restaurants while interacting with entertainers including stilt walkers, jugglers, human statues, face painters, balloon artists and musical acts.
“The Grand Opening of The Streets at SouthGlenn is monumental for not only the area but the shopping center industry. In a time where shopping center openings are delayed indefinitely, we are extremely proud to bring The Streets at SouthGlenn to Centennial and south Denver,” said Don Provost, principal of Alberta Development Partners. “Our vision has always been to bring urban character and charm to an area where people can gather for shopping, dining, entertainment and outdoor community events. We are finally about to bring that vision to a reality.”
The Streets at SouthGlenn is a $310 million, 77 acre infill project where the developers razed the previous 1972 era Southglenn Mall to make way for the new mixed-use center. Comprised of 1.2 million square feet of retail, 140,000 square feet of Silver LEED certified, Class A office space, and 202 luxury apartments, the project combines national retail shops, local boutiques, restaurants, a health club and entertainment options in a completely unique outdoor setting. The Streets at SouthGlenn is also home to the Commons, a classic, urban park, with a grand European fountain, antique brick fireplace, 30 feet tall legacy trees, lush gardens and outdoor cafés.
The entire community is invited to celebrate a weekend full of activities starting Friday at 9:00 a.m. with a ribbon cutting ceremony. Shoppers can enjoy food and entertainment as they experience South Denver’s newest shopping destination. The Streets at SouthGlenn is the newest project to come online from area developer, Alberta Development Partners, LLC. Alberta Development Partners has deep Colorado roots with previous mall openings including Southlands and Cornerstar both in Aurora, CO.
The grand opening of the 1.5 million square foot shopping destination will include an 18,000 square foot Arapahoe Public Library, flagship Whole Foods, Grapes Wine and Liquor, Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Bar Louie, Mellow Mushroom, Chrysallis, Kismet, Color Me Mine, The Oven, Salon AKA, 720 Board Shop, Diego Zhang’s, Larry Johnson Gallery, Bouquets and many more. Hollywood Theaters, a 14 screen with reserved seating theater, will open this fall along with more retailers and restaurants and 24 Hour Fitness, a 48,000 square foot Super Sport, will be debuting this winter. The Portola at SouthGlenn, a 202 unit luxury rental community at the location, includes five elegant and contemporary floor plans ranging from 560 SF to 1834 SF.
Located at the crossroads of University Boulevard and Arapahoe Road, The Streets at SouthGlenn, 6851 S. Gaylord Street, is minutes away from C470 and I-25 and is the ideal location to live, work or play.
In addition to the ribbon cutting at 9:00 a.m. on Friday August 28th, festivities for The Streets at SouthGlenn will include in-store promotions, radio remotes, entertainment, giveaways and food for all shoppers, as well as a movie night.
