The study area for this project includes 3,500 acres along Denver’s 11 mile stretch of the South Platte River corridor, including a quarter-mile of land on either side of the river.
The project approach is to study the entire river corridor in Denver en route to identifying up to six opportunity areas. Each of these areas will be studied within the greater neighborhood context to evaluate connectivity, redevelopment potential, and opportunity for change. Following this analysis, a catalytic site will be identified within each opportunity area that will be the focus of detailed conceptual site-level planning and analysis, including redevelopment alternatives for each site. The end result of these efforts will be a report detailing the results of the study, which will be conceptual in nature and will explore opportunities for new development.
