Commercial Real Estate

Are you a commercial real estate professional—a developer, a site selector, a real estate investor, or an entrepreneur looking for the next BIG THING in commercial real estate? The Lakewood-West Colfax Business Improvement District and the West Colfax Community Association—along with the many businesses and local groups who support the corridor—want to welcome you to West Colfax in Lakewood, Colorado.  West Colfax is rife with opportunities for business innovators.  Find out why!

Why West Colfax? The West Colfax story is as vivid and varied as any in the country. It comes with its own lore, its own brand—and a history rich in character and creativity. As the historic heart of Lakewood, the West Colfax Corridor is re-emerging from  re-routed traffic patterns and the resulting economic impact. The renaissance is beginning—right before our eyes!

West Colfax has been at the epicenter of entrepreneurial and cultural activities for more than 150 years. Now, with the opening of light rail (W Line), the emergence of 40 West Arts District, the opportunities created by both Lakewood’s newly unveiled Zoning Ordinance, and the abundance of under-utilized properties, the corridor is buzzing with energy as it enters the early stages of revitalization. Combined with the Lakewood City leadership and its commitment to renewal, West Colfax is rife with opportunities for new and existing businesses.

CommercialRealEstateWestColfax“The coming of light rail is one of many catalytic activities in the corridor.  The West Colfax Corridor is a remarkable convergence of opportunity—new zoning put in place by a forward-thinking City, active advocacy by the Lakewood-West Colfax BID, strong support from WCCA and numerous other local community associations, fresh creative energy from 40 West Arts, RMCAD, and the new creative enterprises converging on the area, and the quirky history that makes Colfax so cool. With all this lining up, West Colfax is poised to be the next big thing in metro area real estate!”  –Lakewood Mayor Bob Murphy

MORE TO COME: In addition to the significant impact of light rail and the continued momentum of the 40 West Arts District, the City, RTD, CDOT, and the Lakewood-West Colfax BID have more than $1.2M of capital improvements approved for the corridor in the 2013-2014 timeframe, including median beatification, sidewalk expansion, pedestrian amenities, and multiple public art installations.
