Aurora Metro Center

Aurora Metro Center Station

Location: The R Line in the heart of Aurora's City Center district, on the east side of Sable Boulevard and directly north of Centrepoint Drive and adjacent to the existing RTD bus transfer facility, in the heart of Aurora's City Center district featuring existing retail, Aurora Municipal Campus (city hall, library, museum, police services, courthouse and detention center) and the Arapahoe County CentrePoint Plaza building.

Parking: 200 commuter spaces

Vision: Properties within this station area are located within the City Center II Urban Renewal Area, which was created to address redevelopment on the remaining vacant land (137 acres) and future redevelopment needs of three adjacent existing retail centers. A 6.8-acre urban renewal area at the northeast corner of South Sable Street and East Alameda Avenue, along with the Alameda Center Urban Renewal Plan, was established in 2015 to facilitate the redevelopment of the existing bank and shopping center into a quality transit-oriented development.

The city is committed to creating an attractive urban center for Aurora, and public improvements to enhance connections to the station are in the planning stages.

Other Land Details: More than 60 acres of undeveloped land are immediately adjacent to the station, as well as redevelopment opportunities in the area. The High Line Canal Trail is close to the station, as is a city park. Both of these recreational amenities will be valuable assets to new development. The Metro Center Station Area Bike/Pedestrian Connector completed in 2017 created a 10-foot-wide concrete trail connecting the High Line Canal Trail between the Aurora Municipal Center complex from City Center Park via the East Alameda Parkway underpass to the Metro Center Station at Sable Boulevard and CentrePoint Drive. The project also added wayfinding and lighting along the entire route.

What's New: Parkside @ City Center on the northeast corner of East Alameda Parkway and Sable Boulevard recently opened to include 216 residential units and a mix of restaurants and retail. A food hall will open soon. Additional retail space is still available.

The recently completed City Center visioning study analyzed community and stakeholder feedback to develop a draft City Center plan outlining the desired future for this area. The collective desire is for the area to grow into Aurora's "downtown," a dynamic, connected urban center that offers a variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options, along with great paying jobs, desirable housing choices and convenient transportation options.
