This $750 million project is the downtown of Lakewood, Colorado, home to 80 shops, 20 restaurants and more than 3,500 residents.
A dynamic confluence of commerce, civic life and ecological stewardship, Belmar has become a national model for sustainable, smart redevelopment.
Belmar features 726,000 square feet of top-tier retail centered on national favorites like Nordstrom Rack, Target, Whole Foods, Sur La Table, DSW and Victoria’s Secret.
Almost 3,500 residents call Belmar’s 1,200 lofts, condos, townhomes, single-family detached homes, senior-oriented apartments and rental units home.
Once a deteriorating low-rise shopping mall, Belmar has been transformed into everything a neighborhood should be, with art, music, ice-skating and events like Festival Italiano.
Belmar has become the downtown Lakewood never had. In the process it set a new standard for suburban development throughout the region.
Belmar’s success is derived from the fact that it was not conceived as a “project”; but a collection of projects organized around a framework of public streets.
