The City of Westminster currently has a number of active development projects, as well as projects still in planning or review. Below is an expandable list of current development projects in the Westminster area with details on their stages of review or development, the city's role, if they are on public or private land, and more.

Description: Berkeley Homes is proposing a Comprehensive Plan Update for a 38-acre vacant parcel of land at the southwest corner of West 104th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard. The current Comprehensive Plan designation is R-3.5, which allows 3.5 dwelling units per acre. Berkeley Homes is proposing a combination of R-8 (8 dwelling units per acre) and R-3.5. Berkeley Homes’ stated vision for the site is a variety of single-family, paired homes, townhomes, and internal park and landscaped walkways.

Location: Southwest Corner of West 104th Avenue and Sheridan Boulevard

Status: The application is currently under technical review (third submittal). No public hearings have been scheduled at this time. City Staff does not have a formal opinion, stance or recommendation on the proposed Comprehensive Plan amendment at this time.

Public or private land: Private

City's role: Review, and approve or deny

Description: The property owner wants to add accessory residential land use to the Planned Unit Development in compliance with the city’s Comprehensive Plan. There are currently no plans submitted for review to demolish and remove any existing business or structures in the Brookhill commercial development. The landlord has indicated that many tenants have long term leases. The owner’s proposal seeks to add residential as an allowed land use for potential additional development to be incorporated to create a mixed use center. If this change is approved, it would allow for potential future commercial buildings that incorporate residential units on upper floors. This could result in a development similar to Bel-Mar in Lakewood or Streets of Southglenn in Centennial.

Location: Southeast Corner of West 92nd and Wadsworth Boulevard

Status: Staff is performing technical review of a proposed Preliminary Development Plan (PDP) amendment, which would facilitate this future proposed residential development.  Public hearings and consideration by the Planning Commission and City Council for this proposed PDP amendment are anticipated later this year. An Official Development Plan (ODP) would be required as a subsequent step for actual development and no detailed plans have been submitted to the city.
