Kneaders Bakery to be joined by Cafe Rio, Smashburger, Waxing the City and more in $177 million Castle Rock development
The first new tenant in the $177 million Promenade at Castle Rock retail development has opened its doors and nearly a dozen more will follow by year’s end or early next year, developers said this week.
Kneaders Bakery & Cafe, a Utah-based fast casual chain, officially opened last month at 826 New Memphis Court, according to a project spokeswoman. Eleven more retailers will open in the coming months near the interchange of Interstate 25 and Meadows Parkway:
• Tokyo Joe’s
• Cafe Rio
• Mad Greens
• Mod Pizza
• Jersey Mike’s Subs
• Bar Nails & Spa
• Elements Massage
• The Joint
• Waxing the City
Greenwood Village-based Alberta Development Partners and Forum Real Estate Group of Denverbroke ground on the Promenade in November 2014. Adjacent to the Outlets at Castle Rock, the 200-acre, 1-million-square-foot retail development is the largest master-planned project ever constructed in the city.
At the time, Alberta Development said a deal struck with opponents called for the developers to work with a nonprofit wildlife advocacy group to relocate the colony and create a prairie dog ecosystem and conservation program.
The Promenade’s next round of openings will occur by the third quarter of 2016, according to developers. Tenants opening near the new I-25 interchange under construction north of the Meadows/Founders exit will include Sports Authority, TJ Maxx/Homegoods, Ulta and Berry Blendz.
“With the population of Castle Rock continuing to grow, there couldn’t be a better time to open Promenade at Castle Rock,” Alberta principal Don Provost said in a statement.
