NewMark Merrill Mountain States announced Thursday that the official groundbreaking ceremony for the Twin Peaks Mall redevelopment, dubbed Village at the Peaks, will be held from 3 to 5 p.m., Friday, Aug.1, on the north side of the parking lot that sits in front of the former Sears building.
As part of the event, NewMark Merrill is auctioning off three VIP seats to the demolition to benefit the I Have a Dream Foundation of Boulder County. In addition to taking a helicopter tour of the project site with developers and city leaders, the winners will take turns operating the excavator with the demolition crew to help tear down the former Sears building.
Aside from the auction winners, one member of the community attending the groundbreaking event will be chosen at random for a turn in the excavator.
Online bidding for the auction is open at www.villageatthepeaks.com and runs through 11 a.m., Monday, July 28.
Slated for a late summer 2015 opening, Village at the Peaks is an $85 million outdoor shopping center project that will encompass 480,000 square feet of retail, dining and entertainment options. Whole Foods, Sam’s Club, Gold’s Gym and a Regal Cinema movie theater are all signed on as anchors for the development along with several smaller tenants.
