A strong, growing business center, Broomfield is Colorado's first master-planned community. Originally formed as an agricultural community, it grew into an industrial and commercial hotspot with large, medium, and small businesses ranging from high-tech to service industries.
Strategically located midway between Denver and Boulder along U.S. Highway 36, Broomfield offers ready access for commuters going north or south. A fast-growing center for high-tech, retail and manufacturing companies, Broomfield has attracted major corporations, such as Sun Microsystems and Level 3 and developed the upscale Flatiron Crossing shopping mall. The Broomfield real estate market also offers a wide variety of housing choices and generous open space. Anthem Colorado at Broomfield is a multi-use commercial, office, retail and town center that offers a variety of lifestyle choices in a resort-like setting for residents of all ages.
Another attraction is the Broomfield Event Center, which hosts professional sports games and exhibitions, concerts, conventions, and other public events.
Broomfield offers incredible views with Pikes Peak to the South, Mount Evans to the West, and Long's Peak to the Northwest. The town prides itself on its safe streets and neighborhoods with a very low crime rate, exceptional school systems (Boulder Valley, Adams 12 Five Star, and Jefferson County), and 63 parks, playgrounds, tennis courts, baseball, softball, and soccer fields. Broomfield embodies a hometown feel.
