Adams Crossing Launches With Campus Groundbreaking

Brighton, CO
— Today’s groundbreaking for the 91-acre Adams County Government Center also launches Adams Crossing, a new mixed-use development located at the convergence of Interstate 76, E-470, Sable Road and 120th Avenue.

“Adams Crossing’s premier location is ideal for the primary employers we are recruiting to Brighton, especially those in the renewable energy cluster,” said Raymond Gonzales, President and CEO of the Brighton Economic Development Corporation.

In addition to the county campus property, the 780-acre site will feature up to 2 million square feet of commercial space, 1 million square feet of retail space, 2,500 multifamily homes, 750 single family homes and 100 acres of open space and trails. Some 22,000 people will live and work there upon completion in the next ten years.

The Adams County Government Center is a key anchor for the project. “Few mixed-use projects start off with a daily population of 1,250 employees and visitors, with another 2,100 to come,” said Kevin Hawkins, Managing Partner of WoodHawk Development, the master developer. “We’re designing multi-tenant buildings for restaurants, childcare providers and other businesses to serve the campus population when they arrive in spring 2011.”

High-visibility development sites off both highways are being marketed to major grocers, large format retailers, hotels and commercial office users. “You can drive to DIA, I-25, or downtown Denver in less than 20 minutes,” said Hawkins.

WoodHawk Development will break ground later this year on Metro Center in Aurora, a 76-acre mixed-use development; and Creekside Village, a 168-acre mixed-use development in Thornton.WoodHawk owns eight other projects throughout the Front Range.
