Stadium District Master Plan - Next Steps

Latest News: Implementation of Stadium District Master Plan Begins

Following the City Council adoption of the Stadium District Master Plan in June 2019, city planners with Community Planning and Development are now working with local stakeholders to create new rules and regulations that will ensure that the community's vision, as laid out in the plan, guides all new development. 

The process involves large development review (LDR) for the planned redevelopment of the parking lots on the south end of Empower Field at Mile High Stadium and will include rezoning, design standards and guidelines, and an infrastructure master plan. Planners are evaluating all land use, development and design issues to ensure the right tools are being used to create community benefits and to meet the plan's goals.

The plan area covers the southern portion of the stadium as well as adjacent preperties including the cloverleaf where Federal Boulevard and Colfax Avenue meet, southwest of the stadium. LDR covers the parking lots on the south end of the stadium, which is owned by Metropolitan Football Stadium District. The Stadium Investment Corp., a nonprofit venture between the district and the Stadium Management Company (an affiliate of the Denver Broncos Football Club), is the applicant leading the development of this new, mixed-use neighborhood destination.

Stadium District Master Plan - Project Archive

A nonprofit venture between the Metropolitan Football Stadium District and the Denver Broncos Football Club is exploring creating a new, mixed‐use neighborhood destination on the south end of the stadium property — now occupied by surface parking lots used only during games and special events. In response, Denver Community Planning and Development led a master planning process to gather community input to help guide this potential development in accordance with the 2013 Decatur-Federal Station Area Plan (PDF). 

The Stadium Investment Corp.’s vision is to create a neighborhood hub where people can live, work and play, as well as an enhanced gameday experience for fans. City planners involved the community in a master plan for this area so that the people of Denver, and particularly adjacent neighborhoods, could provide input into its future.
