Plan adopted June 2009
Notably the first area for which a plan was adopted pursuant to the City’s Blueprint Denver plan, the industrially-gritty River North neighborhood is supported by two defining physical attributes-the South Platte River greenway and the neighborhood’s main transportation arterial, Brighton Boulevard. Hemmed in by train tracks on all sides, these amenities create a ”double-spine” in River North with potential to attract new and re-investment aimed at increasing the residential and mixed-use component of River North, with the neighborhood’s northeastern boundary focused on industrial business retention.
Already home to an evolving River North Arts District (known as RiNo
) as well as the newly constructed creative-office and residential community known as TAXI, River North’s evolution is expected to continue over the next twenty years through transit oriented development near 38th and Blake, as well as a mixed-use development at Denargo Market near the corner of 29th and Brighton Boulevard.
