14 Acres Sells in Thornton for New King Soopers

Dillon Companies, Inc. (owned by The Kroger Co.) of Cincinnati, has purchased 14 acres in Thornton for the construction of a large-format King Soopers grocery store and fuel center in the master-planned Amber Creek community.

Jon Weisiger and Jim Lee of CBRE’s Denver office represented the seller, Stratus Companies of Greenwood Village, CO.

“Grocery has long been a standout performer in the Denver retail market, and its critical importance has been reinforced by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mr. Weisiger. “Additionally, we are seeing extraordinary housing growth in Thornton, which is driving demand for close-to-home grocery options.”

Construction is scheduled to start this quarter, and King Soopers plans to open the new 123,000-square-foot store and fuel center in 2021. The land is located at the southwest corner of Quebec Street and 136th Avenue in Thornton, just south of the new E-470 and Quebec interchange. The site is within the Amber Creek residential and commercial development, a master-planned community by Stratus Companies with 332 single-family homes and 102 paired units that broke ground in 2016.

“Kings Soopers addition to the development and community is a perfect conclusion of the project,” said Richard Dean, founder and CEO of Stratus Companies.

The grocery store is part of a larger shopping center that will have additional retail options. CBRE’s Weisiger and Lee have been retained to market five pad sites for sale available along both Quebec Street and 136th Avenue, ranging in size from approximately 47,000 square feet to 62,000 square feet.

“The recent infrastructure improvements have transformed this corner into a well-trafficked intersection. The pad sites available for development would be a strategic fit for a variety of retailers looking to benefit from proximity to King Soopers, including banks, credit unions, restaurants, medical tenants, car washes, auto services or daycare centers, among others,”
added Mr. Lee.

    This is an unnecessary spot for a king soopers! There is already 1 on 136th and Colorado Blvd, which is literally 2 miles to west and there is another one on 136th and zuni and thats maybe 4 miles west. I just do understand why its necessary!

    Yay for King Soopers!! I’m getting tired of shopping at Walmart, my closest option. Hopefully restaurants will follow. We need more of them! Not many delivery options where I live. We do NOT need another car wash. They just built one less than a mile south of this property and it’s not even open yet!
