Construction Begins on South Main Station Development

Post Date:05/30/2018 4:47 PM
The City of Longmont is marking an important milestone as construction begins on the South Main Station development, a $70 million, 20-month project that will include residential, commercial, and restaurant space downtown on the site of the former Butterball Turkey Processing plant. Part of the City’s vision to redevelop the 1st and Main Street area, the project is the largest single private downtown investment in decades.

“We are so proud to have this caliber of development in Longmont,” said Mayor Brian Bagley. “While it seemed to take a long time, we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to make this vision a reality. Projects like this don’t come to fruition overnight, and we are jazzed to be moving into the visible phase of this exciting and highly anticipated development.”

Before development could begin on the parcel, the City of Longmont and the Longmont Downtown Development Authority developed a master plan for the area called the 1st & Main Station Transit & Revitalization Plan. The City then invested in necessary infrastructure and ultimately rezoned the land from industrial to mixed use. This is one piece of the master plan, which includes a transportation hub, improvements to Main Street, and construction of Dickens Park.

“The City has created the right environment for development of this type, through construction of quality infrastructure and appropriate zoning,” said Brian Bair, principal of Mass Equities. “As a local developer, I really feel that downtown Longmont is the place to invest.”

South Main Station will be located at 150 Main Street. Phase one of the development includes 253 residential units, 10,000 square feet of commercial space, a fitness facility and other residential amenities. The first residential units will be available for lease in the fall of 2019.

“This is a great example of a public-private partnership, where we could leverage public expenditures to incentivize private investment,” said Alex Sammoury, Longmont Downtown Development Authority Board chair. “This is the kind of transformational project that will beget and catalyze more residential and commercial investment in the downtown area. This first phase will inspire and propel us toward our shared vision for Longmont.”
