Fitness center to move into former Ross and Staples building

Name to be revealed in the next month


Residents can expect a new fitness center in the buildings once occupied by Ross and Staples, near the intersection of South University Boulevard and Highlands Ranch Parkway.

The name of the fitness center has not been released due to a pending lease agreement that is expected to be signed in the next month, according to a representative from CBRE Group, a commercial real estate firm listing the property.

The fitness center will occupy a 50,000-square-foot space in the Highlands Ranch Marketplace shopping center. Surrounding businesses include Good Times Burgers and Frozen Custard, Highlands Ranch Smiles, Dairy Queen and Nicolo's Chicago Style Pizza.

When word spread that Ross, a popular, discount department store, would be closing in January, residents began posting on a Highlands Ranch Facebook page, speculating what business would take its place. Many were hopeful that it would be Trader Joe's. The closest locations of the grocery store chain are in Greenwood Village, on South University and East Orchard Road, and on West Bowles Avenue in south Jefferson County.

For those disappointed to see Ross go, there is another location four miles north at Streets at SouthGlenn, 6737 S. Vine St., Centennial.
