MW & Partners Break Ground on Parkside @ City Centre

Aurora City Council representatives, Aurora Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kevin Hougen and project partners joined Milender White (MW), Northstar Commercial Partners and co-developer Summit Capital Venture group this morning to break ground on the construction of Parkside @ City Centre. A future transit-orientated community located at 14531 E. Alameda Avenue, Parkside will feature 216 market-rate, multifamily apartments, and 36,000 square feet of retail on 5.6 acres.

“Many years before the R Line opened, we created a vision for development near transit that would provide our residents with a new kind of urban living experience in Aurora,” said Aurora Mayor Bob LeGare. “Parkside @ City Center fulfills this vision, with comfortable living spaces, places to eat, shop and gather, and easy connectivity to the metro area. I am excited about the new retail and development concepts this project is bringing to our city.”

Located within an Aurora Urban Renewal District, Parkside’s retail will be available in early 2020. The team is currently negotiating leasing terms with several local food and beverage experts. The project has already secured an agreement with fast casual restaurant Five Guys. Interested retail partners should contact Crosbie Real Estate Group at 303.597.6500.

“It’s an exciting day for the team,” said Tim Fredregill, Development Executive for MW. “Our goal is to create a new urban center that will truly transform the area and provide residents a vibrant lifestyle just steps from home.”

The 216 apartments at Parkside will include studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units with class A finishes and balconies. Community amenities include a fitness center, top-floor lounge, and a large clubhouse opening to a courtyard complete with grills, pool, and hot tub. The apartment community will delivery summer 2021. Leasing for the apartments will start in spring 2021.

“We are excited about our partnership with Milender White and seeing this development come to fruition to benefit the people and community of Aurora,” said Brian Watson, Founder & CEO of Northstar Commercial Partners.”

Additionally, Milender White and Northstar are working with Public Art Services and Nine Dot Arts to implement the City of Aurora’s Art in Public Places Master Plan for the community. The development’s main piece will incorporate a unique blend of light and sound. Art murals will also be implemented around the site.
