KTGY Architecture and Planning has unveiled the designs for the Main Street mixed-use portion of Downtown Superior. The project will create a walkable 12-acre mixed-use location incorporating residential, commercial, civic, retail, and restaurants.
The mixed-use community has been inspired by the area’s coal mining history and uses a blend of materials including brick and black metal. The designs for the 10 residential, four commercial, and four mixed-use buildings will help establish a sense of place along the new Main Street between Marshall Road and Superior Drive. In total, the buildings will comprise 382 residential units and over 70,000 sf of commercial, retail, and restaurant space.
On the north side of Main Street, a five-story apartment building with structured parking sits adjacent to retail spaces. “The large ‘wrap’ building, which features 76 residential units and commercial retail, will be topped by a 5th story resident clubhouse and pool deck which will have panoramic views of the Flat Irons and the entire Front Range,” said Terry Willis, AIA, LEED AP, KTGY Principal in a release. “The above-grade parking garage in the wrap building provides ultimate convenience both for residents and patrons of the civic functions, retail and restaurants.”

A landscaped paseo runs as a central spine between the apartment building and the park-front restaurant, ending on the northern end of the paseo and connecting residential units to the retail plaza. The central plaza will serve as the public town square and open to Main Street, engaging the first-floor commercial uses along its sides. The central plaza is designed to host concerts, markets, and community events.
A stand-alone retail building will anchor the plaza at the corner of Superior and Main Street. On the south side of Main Street, two stories of residential sit atop a first-floor commercial space.
Construction will begin in the second quarter of 2020 with the first phase of apartments and retail slated for completion by the end of the summer in 2021. The final phase is anticipated to complete in the second half of 2022.
The overall development plans for Downtown Superior include public sports fields as part of a new 46-acre public park system, offices, hotels, entertainment, civic additional residential, and medical facilities.
