McWhinney working on $6M Broomfield project
McWhinney presented its plans for the building Tuesday at a Broomfield City Council concept review meeting. The building would be near the corner of Preble Creek and Sheridan parkways in North Park, the large mixed-use development McWhinney is building in Broomfield.
The one-story building would be on a 5.1-acre undeveloped lot and cost about $6 million to complete, according to the city.
Kim Perry, vice president for community design at McWhinney, said the project is build-to-suit and McWhinney would retain ownership of the building and lease it to the tenant.
Perry told the Broomfield City Council that McWhinney and the tenant had signed a nondisclosure agreement. The company could bring 110 employees to Broomfield after occupying the building with plans to grow to approximately 200. The initial lease term is 10 to 15 years, she said.
The proposal met mostly favorable reviews from the council, although questions arose about how traffic from workers and trucks would impact the school across Preble Creek Parkway.
"This is the conceptual, very beginning stages. So obviously there's a lot of refinement to go," Perry said.
McWhinney will meet with neighbors in North Park and the nearby Anthem residential development before submitting more detailed plans to the Broomfield Planning and Zoning Commission.
