Longmont's future Whole Foods Market, one of the anchors of Village at the Peaks, the planned redevelopment of the Twin Peaks Mall property, will be 33 percent larger in size than originally announced.

NewMark Merrill Mountain States, owners of the mall, issued that announcement Thursday, saying the store will be 40,600 square feet instead of the previously announced 30,000 square feet.

"The residents of Longmont have been central to our success in Boulder County since we arrived over 15 years ago," wrote Will Paradise, president of Whole Foods' Rocky Mountain Region, in a statement. "Their continued support, combined with recent feedback from customers in Longmont, encouraged us to increase the size of the store in order to meet their expectations."

Whole Foods, a Sam's Club — 136,085 square feet — and a Regal Cinema Premium Experience — 46,626 square feet — are the Village's three anchors and are, so far, the only tenants NewMark Merrill Mountain States has announced.

Regal is building a 12-screen theater, but one of those 12 screens will be in a format the company calls its Premium Experience — a 60-foot wide, floor-to-ceiling screen with high-back, luxury seating and more seats than a standard-size theater. Allen Ginsborg, NewMark Merrill Mountain States' managing director and principal, told a Longmont crowd at a meeting last summer that there's only one other RPX screen in Colorado and that fewer than 1 percent of the company's 7,500 screens worldwide have such a screen.

"Whole Foods' confidence in the Longmont trade area and in the Village at the Peaks' tenant mix continues to validate the strength of the project and its high appeal to quality retailers," Ginsborg said in Thursday's statement.

He added that his company is "close to announcing new retailers who share their view of the Longmont trade area."

The city and NewMark Merrill are partnering on what the company says will now be an $85 million-plus project to tear down the existing Twin Peaks Mall and build Village at the Peaks. Unlike the 1985-era big box mall, the redevelopment will be an open-air shopping center that will include outdoor plazas and plenty of greenery, the company has said.

The city is contributing up to $27.5 million to the redevelopment of the 75-acre property. It will issue bonds that will be repaid over 25 years by the additional sales and use taxes generated by the redeveloped site, and by money collected through a mill levy the mall's owners will place on the property.
