Continuum’s proposal for the 25.918-acre campus encompasses a broad range of residential, office and retail spaces with an emphasis on small and local businesses. Continuum’s plans envision a vibrant, walkable mixed-use neighborhood that creates a memorable place, including a true “town center” with amenities including parks, plazas, and underground parking.
On Monday December 1st, City Council gave preliminary approval for $47 million in tax-increment financing for the project. Final approval is expected to be discussed at the December 8th meeting of City Council.
The closing on the sale of the property is scheduled to occur by the end of 2014. Continuum anticipates beginning work on the project immediately following closing and estimates that the overall project will take approximately five years to complete.
You can see more images and info about the schedule, renderings, and community feedback here. You can contact my office at 720-337-5555 for more information and updates on Continuum’s progress.
