The 29th Street retail district is a major shopping center in Boulder, Colorado. Situated on the former location of the Crossroads Mall, the district is an unusual shopping area that is popular amongst visitors as well as locals. Under the management of The Macerich Company, the retail center commenced operations in 2006. The venue is subdivided into three different neighborhoods interconnected by numerous walkways, streets, plazas, terraces and other community oriented gathering areas. The anchor tenants of the center are Home Depot, Macy’s, Borders, Century Theaters, Colorado Athletic Club and Staples.
In contrast to the shopping complex it replaced, 29th Street is not a mall in the normally understood meaning of the word. It consists of an array of ‘big-box’ stores and numerous small scale strip malls, divided by avenues which accommodate motor traffic. With its retail, entertainment, office space and dining facilities, the center is considered to be an outdoor lifestyle center.
Before the approval for the construction of the 29th Street complex was finalized many different ideas were expressed for the development of the area. Ultimately it was decided upon to demolish Crossroads Mall and create a new retail complex. The city authorities agreed with the plans for 50-60 stores and a cinema, and the developers Macerich/Westcor commenced the construction process. The opening of the shopping compound was a grand affair featuring a science-inspired theme and a performance by Thomas Dolby.
