Azteca Market – Commercial Redevelopment

ArcWest Architects provided architectural engineering and Planning Department submission coordination services for the redevelopment of this 1.35 acre site and building situated at the north east corner of East Colfax Ave. and Moline Street. This project was funded in part by the Aurora Community Development Department and is part of the Colfax Mainstreet Overlay District.

Azteca Ranch Market is the primary tenant at this Caleb Investment & Management, Inc. location. The property was desperately in need of building and site improvements to meet current zoning requirements and improve business customer traffic.

This design embraces the use of durable economical metallic metal panels and detailing to complement the required Colfax Ave. Design Standards and Roadside District color pallette.  A large dynamic architectural design feature was incorporated at the building’s most visible corner, in addition to raising the parapet along the E. Colfax Ave. to improve the tenant’s visibility and the building’s stature.

Landscaping is maximized along both street frontages. Colfax Ave. landscaping includes new street trees, a ten foot wide pedestrian sidewalk and raised planters to safely separate pedestrians and screen parking and drive areas.
