Noodles & Company will close its Baseline Road restaurant and open a new fast-casual eatery at the nearby Basemar Shopping Center.

The Broomfield-based chain is spending at least $275,000 to combine two spaces at 2802 Baseline Road, in the Basemar center, for a 2,657-square-foot restaurant, according to a permit approved by the city of Boulder last week.

The restaurant will replace Noodles' 2850 Baseline Road location, which is expected to close.

Jill Preston, a Noodles spokeswoman, recently told the Camera that the company's South Boulder location would close, as the site is targeted for redevelopment.

Preston could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

The 2850 Baseline Road property is one of a handful purchased by local developer Jim Loftus for a potential redevelopment. Loftus could not be reached for comment.
