Lafayette Colorado New Residential Development Hearteye Project

weems hearteye propertyLafayette, Colorado may have a new residential development soon as pressure mounts to provide more housing to the booming area.

An 80-acre parcel owned for many years by the Weems family just west of Highway 287 and south of Arapahoe Road has been home to what’s historically been referred to as the Boulder Valley School. (That’s the sign you’ll see on the south side of Arapahoe if you drive by the property to check it out.

The plan includes a proposal for over 450 single-family homes, as well as multi-family units and a small bit of neighborhood commercial use development intended primarily to support the proposed Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm which is intended to be part of the project.

CSA’s have continued to become popular in Boulder county as a way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from local farmers. Restaurants in Boulder County which embrace farm-to-table fare are becoming increasingly popular.

While the proposed residential development will be about one quarter mile east of Hwy 287, the land east of the project, essentially on the southwest corner of Arapahoe and 287 is potentially getting commercial development which might include up to three ‘big-box’ retailers and a handful of smaller businesses.

More planning and review is to come, and the Lafayette planning commission will review public comment in early December.

No word yet on how quickly we might actually see construction begin, or homes for sale in the Weems / Hearteye development.
