Update: RTD / Olde Town Arvada TOD Site
Since the approval of the Gold Line, Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) was envisioned to accompany the Gold Line Station. This became a reality in 2011 when RTD announced that the Olde Town Station would become one of their pilot TOD projects. With this, the TOD site became available after the Arvada City Council committed to fund and construct a parking garage. 400 RTD spaces would be located to the new parking structure freeing up precious space within the Arvada Town Center and Olde Town Residence TOD Site.
The TOD 8.25 acre site consists of three parcels. The site is a collective effort on many levels to achieve a significantly higher and better use as a mixed-use development that will include restaurants, shops, and small commercial users. It will also include housing allowing future residents access to the Arvada Town Center, Olde Town Residence and Transit Hub and other conveniences within walking distance.
In addition to a lengthy list of site and infrastructure improvements, a new streetscape featuring wide sidewalks with trees, flower pots, benches, and distinct signage will link a pedestrian walkway between the development and Olde Town.
