Twin Peaks unveils new name, trio of major anchors
Longmont, Colo. — NewMark Merrill Mountain States named three new anchors for the redeveloped Twin Peaks Mall: Whole Foods Market, Regal Cinemas and Sam’s Club.
The project, which is slated to open in 2014, also unveiled its new name – Village at the Peaks.
Whole Foods is making its Longmont debut with a 30,000-sq.-ft. store. Sam’s Club is also making its Longmont entry with a 136,000-sq.-ft. store, and Regal Entertainment Group is bringing Northern Colorado its first Regal Cinema’s RPX concept – a 12-screen theatre named Regal Premium Experience – to the property.
"Now that the experience is truly taking shape, the time is right to introduce our new name, Village at the Peaks,” said Allen Ginsborg, managing director and principal, NewMark Merrill Mountain States.
NewMark Merrill Mountain States is transforming the formerly enclosed mall into an all-new, open-air, super-regional destination for shopping, dining and entertainment. It purchased the property in 2012, and is working with the City of Longmont in a public-private partnership to reinvent it into a vibrant, modern retail project.
