Denver Design District
The Denver Design District represents one of the best transit-oriented development opportunities in Colorado and the United States. The project was selected by the Urban Land Institute for the 2009 Gerald D. Hines Student Urban Design Competition and has earned recognition as a smart growth project from the Colorado Tomorrow Alliance.
D4 Urban represents the Denver Design District ownership as developer of the 60 acre assemblage that currently consists of 900,000 square feet of leaseable retail, office, and wholesale trade space. The site is part of a larger 75 acre General Development Plan (GDP) approved by the City of Denver in May, 2009. D4 Urban seeks to achieve greater densification and transform the current car-dominated retail based land use into a true mixed use transit-oriented, pedestrian-friendly development based around the Alameda and Broadway Station light rail stations that bookend the site to the NW & SW. Both stations are approximately 5 minutes walk from anywhere on the site. The GDP and zoning approved for the site allow for the use and vision as conceived by the DDD ownership for upwards of 10 Million square feet of development compared to existing conditions of 900,000 square feet. norway D4 Urban is tasked with bringing the vision to reality, over time and subject to local market conditions and the broader US economy. Development will be dependent on securing development financing, existing lease contracts and acceptable risk-adjusted returns from redevelopment against maintaining the status quo income. Project specific information, graphics, and summaries are listed below.
Phase 1 project:
The initial phase of the project is likely to be the Alameda Station Village, currently owned by RTD-Fastracks but under an Exclusive Cooperation Agreement with D4 Urban. The company is currently evaluating this as a trigger for the broader redevelopment by linking it to the Broadway Marketplace and increasing ridership on the RTD Light Rail System.
