After King Soopers stumble, Louisville to re-examine future of vacant Sam’s Club site – The Denver Post

Louisville will commission a specified market study in the coming months before moving forward on any plans to reanimate the former Sam’s Club site, officials say. The 13-acre property has sat dormant for almost a decade in the city’s most profitable commercial area.

The decision to embark on a targeted study for the property — one that officials say could cost upwards of $50,000 to conduct over the entire process — comes after plans to overhaul the property with a King Soopers Marketplace were halted shortly after Amazon’s purchase of Whole Foods last year.

Officials met earlier this month on potential options for the site, including considerations for changes to the comprehensive and small area plan and incentive packages for retail development, before deciding on a more targeted market study.

City Council is tentatively scheduled to reconvene in the coming months on a request for proposal to send out to consulting groups to conduct the study, officials say.

The study will look more closely at the site itself rather than the entire corridor, according to Louisville Planning and Building Safety Director Rob Zuccaro, who said the hope is that it would lead to some type of zoning or policy changes to help incentivize redevelopment on the long-dormant site.
