SCL Health eyes Lone Tree for 25-acre campus

Broomfield-based healthcare company wants to move into Park Meadows area

Posted

SCL Health has submitted a proposal to the City of Lone Tree to rezone and buy land in the Park Meadows area for a new medical campus.

The Broomfield-based healthcare company is interested in potentially building a medical campus on property south of C-470 and west of Yosemite Street, along Park Meadows Drive, according to a release from the city.

SCL Health is being represented by Davis Partnership Architects. The standing name for the project is the SCL Health South Parkway Campus.

The property is currently zoned commercial. The applicant wishes to rezone the land for planned development with helicopter service and medical offices.

SCL Health submitted a rezoning application for the property June 25. It may take another couple of weeks before the city begins the public review process, Lone Tree Community Development Director Kelly First wrote in an email Aug. 2.

According to the rezoning application submitted to the city, SCL Health initially proposed to build a six-story, 440,000-square-foot hospital with about 200 beds. The initial proposal specifies the hospital would be a Level III trauma center with helicopter service and the campus would include two additional medical office buildings. The exact location, as specified by the rezoning application, is approximately 25 acres of undeveloped land east of Furniture Row and west of South Yosemite Street between Park Meadows Drive and C-470.

The applicant is also requesting an increase in height standards from 65 feet to 95 feet with overruns. Per the request, the applicant estimated about 8,190 vehicle trips per day.

Britta Robinson, director of system communications for SCL Health, provided a media statement on the state of the project:

“SCL Health is currently under contract to purchase land in the City of Lone Tree for a potential medical campus development. The property is located south of C-470 and west of I-25, along Park Meadows Drive. We have submitted a request to rezone the property and are currently conducting due diligence.”
