The University of Denver is undergoing several significant construction projects going forward as part of their 2018 Campus Framework Plan. Visit the DU website for construction updates. Also, watch what is happening live on campus with the DU Webcams!
CDOT Headquarters and the Region One site have moved to a new building near Colfax & Federal. State law requires owned by the State of Colorado to be offered first to local government entities. The City and County of Denver exercised the option to acquire both 4201 E Arkansas Avenue and 2000 S Holly Street. Denver selected Kentro Group to develop the two properties based on confidence in delivering a project beneficial to the community.
The proposed rezoning of 13 acres of former Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) land at 4201 E. Arkansas Ave. is scheduled for a Public Hearing and final vote by Council, on Dec. 3. Councilman Kashmann brought together neighbors, Kentro Group and city traffic engineers to begin proactively strategizing on controlling the substantial increase in traffic a more dense development would be expected to generate He is also working with city agencies to craft a Major Project Team - including the community, Kentro and city agencies – that will monitor the project as it moves forward, and work to mitigate negative impacts, should Council ultimately approve the rezoning.

The current plan is to build approximately 140 to 180-for-sale residential units (i.e. row homes) on the site, with senior living and/or small/limited retail on the north part of the property.

All work is weather and Xcel dependent
In Spring of 2018, the City and County of Denver conducted a study of pedestrian improvements for the neighborhood surrounding Cory Elementary and Merrill Middle schools as well as bicycle improvements to Florida Avenue. The project goals are bicycle and pedestrian mobility and safety through planned bikeway installation and sidewalk construction. Right-of-way analysis for sidewalk gaps will be completed before the end of 2018, followed by civil design through early next year. The installation of bike lanes on Florida (Race to Monaco) should be completed by the end of 2018.
The Denver Urban Waterways Restoration Study is a study to identify restorative improvements to three major urban waterways — Harvard Gulch, Weir Gulch, and the South Platte River from 6th to 58th Avenues — in the City and County of Denver. Based on the availability of newer predictive computer models that can now more accurately determine flood risk and a heightened awareness of ecosystem health, sponsors are conducting a series of studies to reassess the condition of these waterways considering flood risk assessment, ecosystem health, and recreational opportunities.

The 2017 Elevate Denver GO Bond Program launched an expanded website to give residents more timely program updates and access to additional current and historical documents and information.
