Oak Station

The area surrounding the Oak Station is comprised of a variety of land uses, including single family residential, commercial and industrial. The City of Lakewood’s overall vision is to transform the area around the light rail station into a mixed-use center, with an emphasis on research and development, and retail opportunities. Development that occurs in the station area is to be urban in form, with building entrances located directly on sidewalks to allow for easy walking access. The station area will be pedestrian friendly with wide sidewalks and street trees planted to create a pleasant atmosphere. Multi-story office and residential buildings, with ground floor retail is envisioned in the blocks nearest the
station and in redevelopment areas north of Colfax Avenue. The expansion of office, laboratory, and research and development uses south and west of the station will also help create a strong employment base for the area and the City. New development north of the station will provide for new pedestrian and vehicular connections to and from Colfax Avenue. The zoning to support this transit-oriented development pattern is in place.
