Officials with Loveland-based McWhinney unveiled their plans Tuesday for a 935-acre project in northeast Broomfield.
The property, to be called North Park, is on the west side of Interstate 25 between Colorado 7 and the Northwest Parkway.
McWhinney hopes to build a 175-acre applied research center as part of the development. That segment of the development would be along 160th Avenue straddling Sheridan Parkway.
Company officials believe the site “is primed to become a place for incubation of new advances in medicine, renewable energy, applied research, technology and science,” according to a release.
The development as it’s currently designed would add 6,200 residential units and 17 million square feet of commercial and mixed-use space. Much of the residential construction would be in the form of multifamily and mixed-use applications.
Broomfield officials were involved during the design process, according to Troy McWhinney, a principal of the company that bears his family’s name.
“McWhinney is working diligently with the city and county of Broomfield on the comprehensive plan for North Park,” he said. “We are pleased with its progress and know that its ideal location north of Denver will bring opportunities for commercial and mixed-use development for Broomfield.”
The company bought the property from Pulte Homes Inc. in December 2007. It was formerly part of the “Anthem” master-planned development and is zoned for commercial development.
McWhinney also developed Centerra in east Loveland, including The Promenade Shops at Centerra and Medical Center of the Rockies.
