Medtronic targets spring for land acquisition, groundbreaking

The Lafayette Town Council on Tuesday accepted Medtronic Inc.’s proposal to build a new campus in the city, making it possible for the clinical-gadget maker to go forward with designs to purchase the land and begin building this spring.

The campus, planned to be constructed in two phases on a 42-acre parcel just south of SCL Health’s Excellent Samaritan Medical Heart, northeast of the interchange of Northwest Parkway and U.S. 287, will consist of 600,000 square ft of office spread throughout a few, 5-tale properties that will be connected by two, a few-tale connector properties.

Stage a person of construction, predicted to start off this spring to be all set for its first occupants in early 2022, is planned to include two of the 5-story buildings and two of the 3-story connector buildings, as well as 1,693 parking spaces, all web site landscaping, infrastructure, and solar car or truck canopies.

“Last night time, the Lafayette Town Council gave final approval to Medtronic’s options to make a Colorado campus in Lafayette,” a company spokesman advised BizWest in an email Wednesday. “This clears the way for Medtronic to continue with the venture. Medtronic expects to near on the land acquisition this spring and start building 6 to 8 months just after the near. The council approval was essential for the task to advance.”

Certain dates for the planned groundbreaking and occupancy of the campus have however to be determined.
