It seems that the Denver Skyline is filled with Cranes as the progress of construction continues to bring new development to our city. While new buildings both for sale and for rent continue to be built, the RTD FasTracks network is rapidly coming to life connecting every corner of our city.
Denver is growing in so many great ways we thought it might be good to do a recap of some of the developments.
Today in the News: 9th and Colorado
Today in the Denver Post on of the top stories covers the “Denver Urban Renewal Authority is seeking to establish an urban redevelopment zone at the site of the old University of Colorado hospital on Ninth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard.” This project could be a huge development for Denver with 41 acres in discussion for redevelopment over 6 years.
City planners, if they are brought in, could take this project to a great new level with more of a master planned approach. New Street designs, bike lanes, and other city improvements with a mixed-use design could create a great new Downtown Denver neighborhood.
Union Station Neighborhood Development
Speaking of master planned… The new Union Station Neighborhood is starting to look like an architectural gem. The main RTD design areas near completion with landscaping in full bloom, the main train structure (that large white architectural metal skeleton) is getting close to completion, and developers are adding glass and steel mid-rise buildings to the skyline.
The transit is running, the next evolution will be when the office buildings fill with activity and the new Union Station Hotel project opens its doors for visitors and patrons to the planned restaurants and eateries.
Exciting things happening in Downtown…
Sun Valley “Riverfront Style” Development with Great Denver Views
If you haven’t been following the news in Sun Valley then you may not know that a new Riverfront style development project is underway. We mean Riverfront as in “on the River”, not the luxury condos of the Riverfront Park Neighborhood… yet.
This area that could easily become the new Stadium District has a new Urban plan underway and developers and speculators seem to be door knocking to find available land and properties. Will this be the next secret neighborhood in to “Pop” in Denver… perhaps. It is located right next to LoHi and has some incredible city views. We certainly put this on the one to watch.
