Candelas Point Land Development
Jefferson Center Metropolitan District No. 1
7.1M sf of commercial space; 35 acre site
Candelas is a nearly 1,500-acre master-planned community in west Arvada, Colorado. It encompasses the area east of State Highway 93 to Indiana street and north of State Highway 72 to the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge. The Candelas master plan includes six residential villages, open space, trails and bike paths, recreation centers, and a K-8 school. It also envisions 7.1M sf of commercial space to include shopping, dining, and entertainment.
The Candelas Point development is located in the center of the Candelas area. It is bordered by State Highway 72 to the south and Candelas Parkway to the north and west. The future Candelas Town Center commercial development will be located immediately east of the development. Candelas Point is zoned Business Professional Residential and will be a mixed-use neighborhood business district. The Jefferson Center Metropolitan District No. 1 will work with developers to bring commercial users to Candelas Point.
Galloway worked closely with Jefferson Center Metro District and the City of Arvada on the design of the public infrastructure required for this master plan development, creating four major super blocks with a public roadway, master utility and drainage network.
