Page 16 - May 1-14, 2024 Mixed-use by Avalon Jacka THORNTON –Apair of nation- al real estate firms have partnered to develop a 23-acre mixed-use project on the northeast corner of the intersection of Quebec Street and East 136th Avenue. Indianapolis-based developer TM Crowley & Associates and Atlanta-based NLG Capital Man- agement, a division of The Net Lease Group, are developing The Highlands at Thornton, which will comprise more than 101,925 square feet of retail, commercial and medical office space. “We are thrilled to work along- side NLG Capital Management in bringing this new develop- ment to Thornton, Colorado,” said TM Crowley Chief Develop- ment Officer A.J. Barbato. “We strongly believe the amenities and recognizable tenants that will occupy The Highlands at Thorn- ton will not only be a great addi- tion to Denver’s northern sub- urbs but support future growth in the coming years.” The Highlands at Thornton is situated directly opposite a newly opened King Soopers-anchored shopping center and Lee’s Farm, a proposed neighborhood of 250 single-family homes. The proj- ect’s prime location and proximi- ty to the completed and proposed developments will establish a “convenient and well-merchan- dised corridor” for residents and visitors, according to a statement from The Net Lease Group. General contractor Brinkman broke ground on The Highlands at Thornton in fourth-quarter 2023. The project will be delivered in phases, with the first phase expected to be delivered in fall. The ground-up development has already received strong inter- est from local and national retail- ers. CVS Caremark has signed on as an anchor tenant, and sev- eral more tenants are expected to be announced soon.

Our passion for modern- izing the flavors of Southwest- ern and Hispanic foods has been core to our mission for years, if not decades.

BioLoomics leased 13,321 square feet in Flatiron Park West, located at 2477 55th St., from landlord Washington Capital. Patrick Brady of Savills rep- resented the tenant, and Hunter Barto and Dryden Dunsmore of Dean Callan & Co. represent- ed the land- lord in the transaction. Brady said Washington Capital and the Dean Callan team were “flex- ible and willing to work closely” with BioLoom- ics to achieve the tenant’s goals for the space. “There's a c o m p e t i t i v e environment for lab space and a very limited supply of move- in-ready labs in greater Boulder, and the deliv- ery timelines for build-out are less than ideal due to per- mitting,” Brady said. “We were thrilled we could uncover a lab solution that aligns so well with BioLoomics’ strategy and opera- tions, given the complications in the market.” The new space is more than double what BioLoomics has in its current space in North Boul- der, which is located approxi- mately 3.5 miles north. Brady said BioLoomics chose its new space in Flatiron Park West due in part to its location, which adds to the company’s benefits for recruitment and retention pur- poses. “Despite the recent decreases in bioresearch investments, the BioLoomics expansion is a dem- onstration of the strength of the life science market in Boulder,” said Brady. The property is situated on the banks of Boulder Creek, adjacent to Flatiron Park. Park amenities include creek and bike path trails, electric car charging stations, covered twin loading docks at each building, and heavy power. BioLoomics’ new location is expected to open late summer. Founded in 2019, BioLoomics focuses on research in antibody therapeutics, automation, cell programming, molecular biol- ogy, machine learning engineer- ing and imaging, according to its website. s Boulder-based BioLoomics signs lease for new location BioLoomics leased 13,321 square feet in Flatiron Park West, located at 2477 55th St., for a new facility.
