During a recent meeting with a client, we discussed the ongoing or as-yet unrealized large-scale mixed use development either in process or on the horizon in Denver. Here is the first in a running series briefly identifying areas discussed – stay tuned for updates:
Colorado Station – Fastracks Light Rail stop at Colorado Boulevard and East Evans Avenue. Currently the SE Corner of the intersection is in early stages of development. Lincoln Property Company is nearing completion on the third tower in their Colorado Center development.
Gates – Broadway and I-25 – Another transit oriented development area. Brownfield site that missed the cut before the recession is now poised for realization with a new area plan.
Denver Design District – Broadway and Alameda – From Wikipedia:In 2009 the Denver City Council approved a General Development Plan for the Denver Design District, by which D4 Urban LLC will create a large transit-oriented developmentin the original Broadway Plaza area and adjacent properties southwest of Broadway and Alameda Ave. The name “Denver Design District” is already in use for the Denver Design Center portion.
10th and Osage –
Sun Valley – East of Federal and South of 6th Ave. Denver Housing Authority is rapidly acquiring land south of the station and CDOT just announced new headquarters adjacent to the Federal/Decatur station.
Former UP Burnham Rail Yard – 70 acres in the heart of Denver. Industrial history but adjacent to transit (10th and Osage Station) and very high profile. http://www.businessden.com/2015/12/10/rail-yards-impending-sale-signals-big-development-opportunity/
