Thornton Topgolf project moves a step closer to development at Larkridge Retail Center – The Denver Post

A planned Topgolf complex in Thornton took a step forward Tuesday night with City Council approval of a resolution looking at a new location in the Larkridge Retail Center.

After passing on a proposed location at Interstate 25 and 136th Avenue, the golf-focused outfit is aiming a bit farther north up I-25, but still in Thornton, near 160th Avenue, according to Topgolf and city officials.

Last month, Topgolf abandoned its plan for a Rolling Hills area site at 136th Avenue when a local resident filed a second lawsuit against the city over the project. The lawsuits claimed the massive 65,000-square-foot, three-story project, with 102 driving-range bays, restaurant and rooftop terrace would diminish nearby residential property values, trigger traffic jams and pose a threat to wildlife.

Dallas-based Topgolf is pursuing its second location in Colorado to accompany its Centennial center. The company also operates combined golf-and-entertainment centers in Salt Lake City, Oklahoma City and El Paso, Texas.

Just east of I-25 between 160th and 168th avenues, Larkridge is home to more than 30 stores, including big-box anchors, shops, restaurants and banks. The southwest corner of the retail center is just north of 160th Avenue.
