Superior could be home to a town center, almost like an amusement park geared toward adults, incorporating a sports and fitness center and other amenities that could become a national draw.

Representatives from Explor Ventures and Oz Architecture presented design concepts to the Superior Board of Trustees for the proposed center during its Monday, June 28, meeting. The town center -- a $350 million investment -- would sit on a 188-acre parcel at the southeast corner of U.S. Highway 36 and McCaslin Boulevard, north of Rock Creek.

"The plan is still conceptual but it's really a big idea for creating a destination nationally, not just another little town center. This would be one-of-a kind in America," said Boulder-based Oz Architecture consultant Carl Worthington.

The center would be resort-like, opposed to a standard Midwest downtown center, Worthington said, and could draw people from all over the country.

Conceptual plans revealed that the 500,000 square-foot sports and fitness center would include interior soccer fields and ice rinks, and Explor President Gary De Bay has met with Boulder Valley Ice officials to combine forces and possibly offer as many as four sheets of ice, opposed to BVI's original plans for a 95,000 square-foot, two-sheet ice rink. The sports and fitness center could accommodate 10,000 members, De Bay said.
