The National Western Center represents a visionary transformation of the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum sites into a must-see destination and regional asset, enhancing these current Denver landmarks through creative year-round activity. With a combined 130 acres of redeveloped land, the National Western Center will support Denver’s global standing as a world-class hub for the Western way of life. The master planning effort will bolster a variety of opportunities through the involvement of our partners including Colorado State University, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, History Colorado and an Advisory Committee made up of residents, business owners and other stakeholders from the surrounding Globeville, Elyria and Swansea neighborhoods. In short, the NWC can become an international model for a synergistic educational and R&D community – with those entire words writ broad and adapted to the evolving definitions of mid-21st century populations.
The National Western Center celebrates the pioneering spirit and promise of the West through year-round experiential lifelong learning, the arts, entertainment, competition and commerce.
Parsons Brinkerhoff is leading the Master Plan team, which will have a recommended master plan for the National Western Complex and Denver Coliseum by winter 2014/2015. The master plan will be presented to Denver City Council for adoption in the first quarter of 2015.
