Mixed Use

Saunders has completed more than 400 acres of mixed use and urban redevelopment projects throughout the Colorado Front Range.


Belmar Block 2 - Villa Italia Mall Redevelopment

This 12-month project is one of seven “blocks” developed on the old Villa Italia Mall site in Lakewood. The master development plan for the entire site includes retail and office space, residential units, community parks, plazas, and several parking garages. Saunders built “Block Two” which consisted of all site work and construction for two multi-story mised uxe buildings, a 1,000 stall post-tensioned parking garage, and partial demolition and remodel of an existing three-story retail structure. The exterior building finishes included an assortment of brick, precast, and glass storefronts with awnings giving a new urbanism feel. Building 2M3 is a 152,000 sf four-story retail and office building featuring an underground parking garage and LEED silver certification. Building 2M4 is 30,000 sf of retail and/or office space. The existing 139,000 sf retail structure, Building 2D, was remodeled and tied into the 465,000 sf Parking Garage 2G. The 1,000 stall parking garage also features retail shops on the ground floor.
