Located at the crossroads of I-25 and E- 470, Larkridge is emerging as a retail and mixed use hub at the gateway to one of the Denver metropolitan area’s fastest growing communities. To date, a 1MSF retail center with national anchor tenants, big box retailers, village shops, and restaurants has opened on the ~200-acre site. Matrix is continuing design work on a new 300-unit apartment complex and associated roadway design.

Matrix assisted in the formation of the Metro District, including master planning, cost modeling, and tax increment cost allocation for the two-phase, ten-year project. Services provided by Matrix also include the design access control and widening for State Highway 7; 1601 permitting for I-25 interchange improvements; and design of a relocated six-lane Washington Street arterial.

Drainage and flood control services included master planning to mitigate the South Preble Creek floodplain, which encumbered about fifty acres of the project, along with implementation of a regional water quality and low flow control plan to address potential issues within rural downstream areas in Adams County. Matrix also designed and constructed nearly a half-mile of 12’ x 6’ box culvert to realign the Bull Canal for the Farmers Reservoir and Irrigation Company (FRICO). Water and sewer services were provided through the extension of trunk infrastructure to the northwest extremity of the City of Thornton.
