Lamar Station Crossing
LEED Gold Building
The advent of RTD’s new West Line brings with it a renewal of purpose for the Lakewood neighborhood adjacent to the new Lamar Street light rail stations. The introduction of light rail transit is creating new, 21st Century urban district “centers” which are redefining communities across the Metro Denver area.
Lamar Station Crossing lies at the epicenter of one of the new RTD transit centers and redefines what it means to live, work, and shop at these easily–accessed locations. This Lakewood community also brings a second asset to the table: immediate access to the Lakwood Gulch, its trails, bike paths, and natural open space.
With 175 dwellings, a community building, and over 50% open space; Lamar Station Crossing is a place that embraces both sustainable solutions and its natural assets and convenience to transit while simultaneously being a place that is at once affordable, multigenerational, and connects people in an innovative, healthy living environment. The project positions MetroWest and Lakewood as leaders through a careful balance of design, economics and placemaking by leveraging existing assets, Transit Oriented Design and Sustainability to create a place for the next century of living in the Front Range.
