    The Col Site Development Plan for a mixed use building has been approved by the Director of Community Development on December 7, 2023.

    The purpose of the site development plan review for The Col is to ensure all the technical requirements that were part of the zoning are demonstrated and complied with. The review also includes the applicable sections of Title 18 of the Golden Municipal Code. The PUD/ODP details the prescriptive requirements for the project such as land uses, parking, open space, architectural specifics, setbacks, height, and landscaping. The PUD/ODP was tailored to the site’s unique characteristics along W. Colfax Avenue and a mixture of uses. After a public engagement process that included neighborhood meetings and a public hearing at Planning Commission on May 5, 2023, the PUD/ODP was approved by City Council on July 25, 2023.

    The subject request is for a site plan approval for property addressed 17270 W. Colfax Avenue located on the south end of Golden. It is on the south side of Colfax between Corporate Drive and Violet St, north of the Interstate Denver West Business Park. The property is mostly surrounded by commercial / light industrial uses, with the exception of a small townhome development to the east on the other side of Corporate Drive. The property is a 3.53 acre lot, zoned Planned Unit Development/Official Development Plan (PUD/ODP).

    The PUD/ODP allows for a mixed use development, including multi-family residential when at least 5 percent of the gross square footage is designed for nonresidential use, with a maximum height of 50 feet. The applicant, Confluence Companies, LLC, is proposing a three and four story structure, with a 55,675 footprint, which totals 36% lot coverage. The proposed uses are residential and commercial, which include multi-family and boarding house (congregate living) units, a restaurant, and a café. The commercial uses equal approximately 5% of the total gross floor area of the building. A complete memorandum detailing the approval and all attachments are found below:

    Updated Planning Commission Packet for 4/6/22 Meeting

    April 2022 ODP


    UPDATE ON 2/23 PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING:

    Due to the high level of community interest in the CoorsTek Zoning and Redevelopment proposal, CoorsTek has requested a continuance of the February 23rd hearing to April 6th in order to carve out time for direct engagement with the public on their proposal (see attached letter). There will be no presentation or public comment on this request this evening.

    Due to the breadth and depth of CoorsTek’s proposal, both City of Golden staff and the applicant (CoorsTek) want the public to have the chance for direct dialogue with the applicant and City staff. The neighborhood meeting that was held several months ago was an opportunity for the applicant to share their vision with the community and relate it to the Clear Creek Neighborhood Plan, but the details of their proposal were not known until the formal submittal was made. Staff and the applicant would like to revisit the neighborhood/community meeting format now that these specifics are available.

    During the month of March, staff will hold two city-hosted virtual meetings that will serve as opportunities for direct engagement between the public and the applicant, with city staff there to answer questions and introduce the meeting. The starting point for these listening sessions will be the direction provided in the North Clear Creek Neighborhood Plan and the revised Official Development Plan in the supplemental packet submitted to Planning Commission and posted on Guiding Golden. The applicant will also record a video presentation prior to these two meetings that staff will post, and staff will encourage advance viewing by the public in order to make these sessions more focused on public questions and comments. In-person office hours will also be offered during this period, and dates and times will be announced in coming days. These meetings are not in lieu of public comment for the Planning Commission hearings. The public may still provide written comments for the scheduled April 6 hearing at Planning Commission via planningcommission@cityofgolden.net.

    Please stay tuned to GuidingGolden.com for meeting dates, times and any further information on the CoorsTek proposal.


    The Planning Commission moved to continue the hearing to Wednesday, February 23, 2022. This meeting will be held at City Hall Council Chambers, 911 10th Street at 6:30 p.m. There will be a chance to give public comment at this meeting, or you can send your public comment to planningcommission@cityofgolden.net by 1 p.m. on February 23, 2022.

    Revised ODP and Supplemental Packet

    The meeting will be live streamed on the City Agendas Page, the recording from the February 2, 2022 meeting can also be found on this page.
