The Brighton Urban Renewal Authority (BURA) announces a call for developers and proposals for the approximately four-acre property located at the northeast portion of Bromley and Highway 85. BURA is seeking proposals that incorporate retail into a mixed use development and serves as a gateway into Brighton and the Downtown.
Since late 2015, BURA has been working with Jason Collier, a prominent hotel developer to explore the potential for developing a hotel on part of this site.
“Jason is a fine developer and is willing to work with us in support of attracting a strong retail and mixed use presence at this critical intersection,” BURA Interim Executive Director Ryan Johnson said. “We are confident that by adding some new mixed use and retail opportunities, the stage will be set for a potential hotel in the next 24-36 months.
BURA began acquiring portions of this site in 2015 with the final acquisition taking place in December 2016. BURA anticipates the site to be cleared by mid-summer and anticipates opening up the request for proposal (RFP) process in May. City and BURA staff are also completing a land swap with CDOT in order to maximize the developable area at this gateway.
“We are looking for ways to compliment a future hotel user by adding support commercial development,” Johnson said.
BURA is partnering with the Brighton Economic Development Corporation and will be available to meet with interested parties at the International Council of Shopping Centers conference in Las Vegas the week of May 22. Interested parties should contact Ryan Johnson at 303-655-2139 to discuss future development opportunities.
