Confluent Development Completes Denver Retail Project
DENVER – Denver-based Confluent Development, recently completed its retail project located on the northeast corner of Arapahoe & Nome in Centennial.. Spanning 2.78 acres within The Ridge development, the project features national retail brands Natural Grocers and Starbucks.
Confluent Development and Equity Ventures Commercial Development, a fully integrated commercial real estate development group, partnered to deliver the new Natural Grocers store within the retail development. The partnership recently sold the property, marking the full completion of the Arapahoe & Nome project.
The Natural Grocers store recently celebrated its grand opening, relocating from its Greenwood Village store along Arapahoe Road where it had operated for more than 30 years. The highly anticipated opening fills the city’s need for a specialty grocer in this rapidly expanding area.
“Natural Grocers is committed to Colorado. It’s our home and we want our customers to have the best possible experience here, and everywhere we have stores,” said Kemper Isely, Natural Grocers Co-President. “We believe our standards resonate with our Colorado customers and people looking for healthier food choices at affordable prices, and that’s why we continue to open new stores and relocate existing stores.”
The location features Colorado-based Natural Grocers’ new store prototype, which includes nutritional health coaching and a nutritional education center as well as the fresh, organic and natural groceries, dietary supplements and body care products carried at all Natural Grocers stores. The 13,300-square-foot build-to-suit retail property provides a convenient location for customers and focuses on providing the community with access to high-quality organic and natural groceries at affordable pricing.
In September 2017, Confluent Development delivered and sold a Starbucks property within the development, marking the firm’s fifth project serving as developer for Starbucks. Located at 11703 E. Arapahoe Road, the 2,000-square-foot store features an outdoor patio and drive-thru to enhance the customer experience. Studio DH served as the project architect and Pioneer Construction as the general contractor.
Following its sale of the Starbucks property, Confluent Development also sold a third land parcel within the Arapahoe & Nome project, which is anticipated for development into dental office space.
