The Orchards

North Westminster Destination

The Orchards refers to a section of north Westminster that is home to the Orchard Town Center and other surrounding retail centers, as well as the St. Anthony North Medical Campus. Just to the south of the medical campus is 250 acres of prime I-25 frontage that is zoned for office and commercial uses. The Orchards is located in the booming northern Denver metro area that has seen a large population growth, and expects to see more with the addition of an Amazon distribution center in nearby Thornton.

Access

Located on I-25 at the 144th Avenue exit, the Orchards area enjoys quick access to I-25, as well as the Northwest Parkway and E-470, making the trip to Denver International Airport that much faster. The City of Westminster has also partnered with nearby St. Anthony North Health Campus to launch a bike-share program, with a station located on the medical campus.

Retail and Entertainment Amenities

The Orchard Town Center is an open-air retail and entertainment district conveniently located on the northwest corner of I-25 and 144th Avenue in Westminster.
