Civic Center Development

The overall theme of the project is to create a mixed use activity center that will attract local residents to its locally owned or otherwise desirable eateries and retail outlets, professional offices and residential opportunities. The park-like setting for the project provides a unique offering of attractions for visitors to the area that complement the land uses and contribute to the vibrancy, economic vitality, and local character of the area. The overall Civic Center Master Plan suggests a neighborhood reflecting the values and expectations of Broomfield.


Based on community input and focus groups, the plans generally propose:

  • A substantially enlarged Community Park Pond wrapping around the Library and Auditorium towards First Avenue,
  • Extensive plaza and walking areas including outdoor dining, entertainment areas, and public art,
  • Approximately 50,000 square feet of retail and restaurant uses, a 100 room inn, 22 row-houses,
  • Approximately 365 dwelling units including opportunities for affordable housing,
  • A re-purposing of the Safeway building into 25,000 square feet of retail area, 15,000 square feet of co-working space, 10,000 square feet of community space and 10,000 square feet of common area.
