February-March Development Corner

Construction site for Chick Fil A Aspen Grove

Happy New Year and a few updates from the city’s community development department.

Our team continues to be busy with new development projects. Circle-K, expected to be located at the corner of Bowles and Platte Canyon, is moving through the development review process. For years there had been a ‘coming soon’ sign up at the property. Hudson Garden’s has an application in for paving an additional parking lot, which should help to accommodate more patrons in the future. Chick-fil-A is under construction in Aspen Grove, located along Santa Fe Drive. The 4,995 square-foot building can now be seen on the east end of the parking lot, where Champps used to be. Nearby, Breckenridge Brewery has a development application in process for an expansion to the brewery facility, as well as added food truck and outdoor gathering space. An addition to the Rocky Mountain Distribution Center warehouse was approved for its facility located in SouthPark. More residents continue to move in to Littleton Village (former Marathon Oil property), and Andy’s Custard, which will be located at the corner northwest of Broadway and Ridge Road, will begin construction soon.

In Downtown Littleton, the remodel of the historic Culp Block building looks fantastic. It is now home to Bristlecone Construction and a new bar and restaurant called The Alley. A new outdoor patio was recently approved for the Lost Cajun, located at 5350 South Santa Fe Drive next to LaMar’s Donuts. On Main Street, the redevelopment of the former Valley Feed property has officially been designated into the Downtown Historic District.

More details on these projects and many more development activities throughout the city can be found on the city’s website littletongov.org under the Development Activity List (DAL).
