SageGlass dynamic glass will control sunlight in the superstore in order to provide a comfortable experience for the customers that will enjoy the 95 specialty shops and family-friendly entertainment that will all be housed under one roof.

SCHEELSJohnstown, CO

JOHNSTOWN, CO — As if east Loveland already weren't a shopper's paradise, a developer announced Wednesday that 830,000 square feet of retail would be built at Interstate 25 and U.S. 34 in Johnstown, anchored by a giant Scheels sporting goods store. At the announcement event, the chairman of the board of the Fargo, N.D.-based retailer said his family's company would build a 250,000-square-foot "retail shopping adventure" that would be the second largest sporting goods store in the country — No. 2 after the 295,000-square-foot Scheels in Sparks, Nev. "We've been looking for this site for over 10 years," said Steve D. Scheel, company chairman. "We know this community will support it." Scheels plans to break ground in early 2016 at the corner of Ronald Reagan Boulevard and Larimer Parkway and open in September 2017.

Engebretson to design its new Fargo location, the credit union expressed a desire for the building’s interior features to relay back to its mostly blue-collar member owners, says Kim Manuel, principal and director of interiors at R.L. Engebretson. The firm incorporated metal beams, stone reclaimed wood, including redwood ICSS had salvaged from Minnesota State University Moorhead’s quad, into the design."
