Before Arvada Ridge
The former Ridge Home Hospital contained over 50 dilapidated and abandoned buildings. Over time this abandoned campus became an unsafe haven for crime and the homeless. To view "Arvada Ridge Project" factsheet click here .
After Arvada Ridge
The Arvada Urban Renewal Authority (AURA) began the eagerly awaited process of redeveloping the former Ridge Home site. It is currently being transformed into a transit-oriented, mixed-use retail and residential community. The 68-acre site is being developed in three phases.
Phase One: is the Arvada Ridge Market Place, a SuperTarget anchored retail center.
Phase Two: is a beautiful, 380-unit market rate, multifamily development located across the street for a commuter rail station.
Phase Three: is the primary opportunity that remains, approximately 11 acres north of the rail station that will likely be a mix of residential and commercial uses, linking the commuter rail station to Red Rocks Community College.
