Adams County / Boulder County / Jefferson County
Broomfield began as Colorado's first master-planned community in the post-war 1950s when a group of developers saw an opportunity at one of the new interchanges of the Boulder turnpike. This quiet community is home not only to the people who relish the small-town atmosphere, but to industry giants like Ball Corporation, Sun Microsystems, Hunter Douglas, Level 3 Communications, Corporate Express, and Geneva Pharmaceuticals.
The small farming town has grown from 200 residents to over 41,500 today. Situated at the center of the Denver-Boulder corridor, and with views of the front range and the many lakes in the area, Broomfield is located in the heart of one of the most dynamic growth areas in metro Denver.
Broomfield's economy is well diversified with significant employment in all areas. Most of the area’s business developments are in Boulder County, which supports the highest concentration of manufacturing and high technology in Colorado. Businesses in Broomfield enjoy a superior ground and air transportation network, and have access to a plentiful and skilled work force.
Flatiron Crossing Regional Mall located on Highway 36 in Broomfield is anchored by Nordstrom, Foleys, Dillards, and Lord & Taylor.
