Broomfield PF Chang’s Gets Visit From Boulder Realtor

During a recent visit from my In-Laws, the family announced when I got home from work that everyone wanted to have dinner at PF Chang’s. Fortunately there’s one at the Flatiron Crossing Mall in Broomfield.

With my kids being huge fans of almost any Asian style food, PF Chang’s comes in second generally only to a Sushi bar. With the decision made, my easy task was to cart everyone over to the now almost abandoned Flatiron Marketplace. It’s strange to see so many vacancies in this very-pleasant extension of the Flatiron Crossing Mall.

The rumor is that this outdoor shopping experience has been consistently losing tenants due to foundation problems due to the shifting soils. Some speculate that the entire section will be torn down and rebuilt before tenants will return. This is mostly hearsay from wait staff I’ve talked with around the area. Hopefully I’ll get a comment from one or two of you well-informed readers.

For those of you not familiar with this area, here’s an excerpt from another website with statistics about the property:

FlatIron Marketplace is a 422,183 square foot regional open-air shopping center located at the Southwest quadrant of the US 36 / Flatiron Crossing Drive between Denver and Boulder within the community of Broomfield, Colorado. Completion of the Highway 470 extension, known as the Northwest Parkway, has further solidified this interchange as a super-regional shopping destination, with traffic counts on US 36 exceeding 74,000 cars per day.

The property is located adjacent to the 1.5 million square foot FlatIron Crossing Mall, which is anchored by Nordstrom, Dillard’s, Macy’s and Interlocken, a 963 acre mixed-use development which features a 390-room Omni Interlocken Resort, 27-holes of championship golf, extensive landscaped parks, a satellite facility for the University of Colorado and 4.3 million square feet of premier office space. A new 6,000 seat arena, home to minor league hockey and basketball teams, opened in November 2006, one mile to the southeast of US 36 and Colo. 121.

PF Chang’s never seems to disappoint us as is true with many of its fans. We’re never hungry when we leave and there’s always a great variety of choices, most of which are prepared well I’m sometimes wishing that the cost wasn’t so high for a ‘formulaic’ dining experience.

What I’ve learned over time though is that it’s not always what I want. If the rest of the gang walks away happy, ultimately I’m happy and next time, I may get to choose… such as Kasa Japanese Grill in Boulder!
