Leher’s Greenhouse Wheatridge, Now Yarrow Gardens
Remediation and redevelopment of the former 6-acre Leher’s Greenhouse and adjacent single-family property just west of 44th & Wadsworth into 89-unit townhome development. As the former carnation capital of the world, Wheat Ridge was home to many floral operations, including the former Leher’s Greenhouse just west of 44th & Wadsworth. Once a source of pride, years of pesticide use, changing economic conditions, and grandfathered commercial use in a residential zone district left the site in a state of disrepair. Through rezoning, remediation, and redevelopment, it is now a thriving neighborhood bounded on the south by an elementary school and the west by the City of Wheat Ridge’s community garden.
