Community Planning and Development, in accordance with Denver Zoning Code (DZC) 12.4.12, is proposing the repeal of a general development plan approved in 2015 for a 41.05 acre site southwest of the intersection of Interstates 25 and 70 in northwest Denver. The property, formerly the Denver Post printing plant, is generally bound by Interstate 70 to the north, West 45th Avenue to the east, West 43rd Avenue to the south and rail lines to the west.
The city has determined that the GDP is no longer necessary to implement the vision established by the city’s adopted plans for this site. Updated regulatory and infrastructure tools--new zoning for the property, an infrastructure master plan, and development agreements--are being developed concurrently to achieve the planned vision for the site. As a final step to facilitate redevelopment, the process to repeal the existing GDP has started.

The GDP repeal will follow the major amendment process as described in the Rules and Regulations for General Development Plans (PDF). The GDP process provides for public comment at the time of application submittal. The GDP repeal will require a Denver Planning Board public hearing with a recommendation of approval for the city’s Development Review Committee. Final review and approval of the repeal is expected to take place in the fall of 2017.
