While it happened more by accident than by design, many of the retail stores in the highly-anticipated Central Park Development are health and wellness-oriented – perhaps not a huge shock as the area is being built in the shadows of the new six-story UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital near Lucent Boulevard and C-470.  

The 100-acre Central Park development will include more than 250 apartments, 200 single-family homes, the UCHealth extension campus and an assortment of shops, restaurants and fitness studios.

According to developers, all of the retail shops are expected to open by summer, including Orangetheory Fitness, Mad Greens, Zoe’s Kitchen, a cycling studio, Torchy’s Tacos, Old Chicago, Rock Bottom and other restaurants. They also expect to lock in two more international tenants.

Currently, 60 percent of the center is leased, and agreements are underway with nearly 25 percent more. 

So far, the only Central Park business open to the public is Barre3, a barre fitness studio franchise at 1493 Park Central Drive. Almost as soon as owner Britney Palmer opened the doors Sept. 14, south metro residents flooded in.

Additionally, the Highlands Ranch Metro District is building a 3-acre community park in the middle of the development, aptly named Central Park.

The hospital is slated to open in the first half of 2019 and will create 400 permanent jobs, and 500 to 600 construction jobs.

Highlands Ranch is a bustling neighborhood with a variety of housing options – if you’re interested in checking out this exciting area, give us a call. Metrowest would love to show you around!
