After more than a year of meetings and evaluation, City Council has adopted a new zoning and design review system for the Arapahoe Square neighborhood, located just north of the Downtown Core. The system promotes the vision of the 2011 Northeast Downtown Neighborhoods Plan (PDF) for a densely populated, vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood.
The 16th Street Mall and downtown Denver is home to over 20,000 residents, where 120,000 employees go to work each day, and where over 300,000 of visitors enjoy our city each year. According to RTD between 40,000 to 45,000 people ride the RTD free mall ride each day. The 16th Street Mall and downtown Denver is the most populated area in the City and County of Denver.
The RTD East Rail line otherwise known as the University of Colorado A Line was a $1.3 billion investment into a transit system that connects Downtown Denver and Denver International Airport. One of the stations in the Five Points statistical neighborhood now branded RiNo (River North) realized the station area plans and neighborhood plans were in conflict with one another.
