Furniture Row Store Breaks Ground in Littleton
Precision Contractors and Furniture Row recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the start of construction on a brand-new Furniture Row and Denver Mattress Co. store at C-470 and Bowles Ave in Littleton.
The new 74,365-square-foot facility, located at 5779 S. Alkire St., has been designed by Intergroup Architects.
To take advantage of such a high-visibility location, the building will feature a large, stepped version of Furniture Row’s iconic angled red roof, attractive exterior design features on all four sides, and it will use 11,000 square feet of glass as large-scale windows, window walls, and even a clearstory beneath the upper roof.
As Bob Hibbard of Precision Contractors put it during the ceremony, “When you look at this Furniture Row, you’re going to see the big red roof from C-470 in either direction, and you’re going to see an ongoing clearstory of glass which is going to let in a huge amount of light to welcome customers entering the store. I’d like to congratulate the folks at Intergroup Architects for another iconic design; we’re going create another great customer experience here.”
Furniture Row intends to have the new store become a treasured local business that adds to the value of the area. Tim Visser, the President of Furniture Row, spoke about the impact they hope to have in the surrounding area, saying, “Even though we’re now in 28 other states, there’s something special about breaking ground in our own backyard. We are Colorado natives through and through and we are heavily invested in our community here. With the influx of so many people from across the country to Colorado and the Denver metro area, it seems only appropriate that they should experience local and family-owned furniture and mattress store helping them to make their house a home and create the world they love. We take that responsibility very seriously, and we want each and every visitor and community member to have the best shopping experience they’ve ever had.”
