A Sprouts Farmers Market is on track to open in Green Valley Ranch later this year, bringing another option to the far northeast Denver neighborhood that has long been light on grocers.

Developer Evergreen Devco announced Friday that it expects construction to begin in March on the 23,300-square-foot store at the intersection of East 56th Avenue and Tower Road.

The store, from the Arizona-based grocery chain specializing in fresh produce and organic and natural foods, will anchor a shopping center that is expected to eventually host eight buildings. The plans include a multi-storefront “shops” project that is expected to get underway in April, according to Evergreen.

The developer closed on the roughly 8.5-acre plot of land in December after finishing work on an adjacent 324-unit apartment project last year. The retailer is designed to complement that and serve the broader far northeast Denver area, said Tyler Carlson, Evergreen’s managing principal based in Denver.
