If you live in Denver, you have most likely visited the Platte River near Elitches. If not, you know of how there is not a lot to do directly with the river. Interaction with it is mostly just walking near it or getting in. The Denver Architecture Foundation proposes that there should be a major overhaul to the existing area to allow for a new community and part of town to flourish. This will be a multi-year project, and Elitches isn’t going anywhere for 2019. But there are a continuing series of free lecture series around it, put on by the developers themselves to focus on the new community, called The River Mile. Having lots of work for Denver property management in the surrounding area, we are always interested in new developments that will shape the city for years to come. The program description is as follows. The River Mile is the proposed redevelopment of Elitch Gardens and its surface parking lots in Downtown Denver’s Central Platte Valley. The 60-acre project could include as many as 10,000 housing units and millions of square feet of office, retail and community uses in dozens of buildings - some reaching as high as 59 stories - organized around riverside parks, urban plazas and streets that prioritize walking, biking and transit. What are the design features of The River Mile that will leave a mark on Denver’s future architectural legacy? How will the layout of The River Mile reduce automobile dependency? What approaches will be used at The River Mile to make it affordable and accessible to a wide spectrum of incomes? How will The River Mile embrace the South Platte River? These and other questions will be discussed as we engage with a panel of experts to explore The River Mile development as a major catalytic project for Downtown Denver. This panel will be taking place at the Denver Art Museum on Monday January 28th, from 6:00 to 7:30pm. This is free and open to the public, and the evening will be devoted to The River Mile. This will hardly be the last word on the development, so stick around for more Denver property management news to hear the updates as the year progresses.
