Continuum opened this 103-acre downtown district for the City of Lakewood. This nationally recognized mixed-use project combines retailers, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, theatres, offices, residences, artist studios, parks and plazas - all within 22 city blocks. The development includes approximately 5,000 parking spaces in public parking garages, surface lots and street parking. Catering to the urban lifestyle, Belmar's streets, green areas and public art program are designed to encourage pedestrian traffic, promote community building and emphasize the importance of public spaces. The first phase of this $750 million plus project opened in May 2004. Currently, there are over 80 shops and restaurants open in the development including anchors Dick's Sporting Goods, Whole Foods Market and Century Theatres.
