Not much changes in the city of Northglenn. Completely surrounded on all sides by other cities there is not much room for expansion; so things have stayed the same, including restaurant selection for a number of years. Yet an urban renewal project almost ten years in the making, the Webster Lake Promenade, is finally bringing something new to Northglenn and its restaurant scene.
In 2004, the property at the southeast corner of I-25 and 120th avenue was purchased by the city and the Northglenn Urban Renewal Authority for redevelopment. Over past years the property has been made ready for new building by demolitions of the former buildings along 120th and Grant Street. Finally, new building began this past July. When the promenade is completed it will have about 47,000 square feet of restaurant and retail commercial space. “The vision was to create a vibrant commercial center for the city, and we are now making this a reality”, says Mayor Downing.
According to Hawkins Development, one of the partners in the project, the promenade will bring 200 new jobs to Northglenn. “It will revitalize that area. We need the jobs and new construction in Northglenn, but it will also provide quality restaurants and services for the residents, businesses and visitors,” says Downing.
