CBRE Retained to Sell 70-Acre Lutheran Medical Center Campus

8300 W. 38th Avenue in Wheat Ridge.

CBRE has been retained by Intermountain Health as the exclusive marketing agent for the sale of the 70-acre Lutheran Medical Center campus in Wheat Ridge. The campus, which has been operational since 1905, is located at 8300 W. 38th Avenue. 

Martin Roth and Eric Roth with CBRE’s Land Services and Capital Markets in Denver will manage the disposition process for the seller.

Lutheran Medical Center will relocate to a new state-of-the-art medical facility at Clear Creek Crossing in Wheat Ridge, which is scheduled to be operational later this summer.

 In October of 2021, the City Council approved the Lutheran Legacy Campus master plan, which outlined a vision for the campus and its future redevelopment. 

The Legacy Campus Master Plan

The site is currently zoned as a Planned Hospital District (PHD), and permitted uses include only hospitals, hospice care, and accessory uses customarily associated with a medical campus. The city’s comprehensive plan, Envision Wheat Ridge, designates the campus as a public land use noting that public uses, including the hospital, will “remain as community and neighborhood anchors.” The plan also designates the site for primary employment. These designations reflect the well-established hospital use, and the comprehensive plan did not consider other potential land uses for the site. It’s through a master planning process, however, that possible uses for the future can be updated and expanded.

The planning process for the Lutheran Legacy Campus Master Plan was approved by the city council at a public hearing on October 25, 2021. The document lays out the community’s vision and will serve as a roadmap for development over the next 15 to 20 years or more. Since the property is held under private ownership, the city does not have full control over what this land will become, and this master plan will help guide prospective buyers to make the community’s vision a reality.
