Located on South McCaslin Boulevard, right off West Cherry Street, you may have learned to look past the 129,000 square foot building that has been vacant for the past four years. However, you may want to look again because this former Sam’s Club is about to find new life.
Earlier this year we have seen spurts of activity in this building—housing AmeriCorps members for flood-relief projects in November and hosting a Colorado Department of Transportation meeting for one night on February 13th to discuss the U.S. 36 contract. But now the building is in search of a new, more permanent, tenant.
Local investors Seminole Land Holding Inc. and Centennial Valley Investment LLC purchased the vacant Louisville Sam’s Club, one of the largest retail parcels in town, for $3.65 million at the beginning of February for retail use, which would be excellent for the city of Louisville’s finances.
As of now, there are no specific plans for the building, and until a tenant moves into the vacant Sam’s Club, Ascent Community Church will act as the month-to-month interim tenant beginning April 6th where they will use a small piece of the space, 20,000 square feet, for worship (having previously held services at the Omni Interlocken Resort).
Ascent Community Church started in December 2013, so this is a win-win situation for the church and Centennial Valley Investment LLC and Seminole Land Holding Inc. while each figure out a more permanent situation.
Ascent will begin posting signage in March about their new Sunday service plans.
