Central Platte Valley-Auraria Zoning and Design Review

In New Constructionby Lori GreenlyLeave a Comment



The recently adopted Downtown Area Plan Amendment establishes a bold vision for the Central Platte Valley – Auraria district of downtown Denver, which is bound by I-25, Speer Boulevard and Auraria Parkway.

In an effort to move forward on key plan objectives, City Council Members Albus Brooks (District 9) and Rafael Espinoza (District 1) are sponsoring this Denver Zoning Code text amendment. The project will include development of new zone districts to help implement the plan vision for a dense, diverse and distinctive urban neighborhood. Zoning will address important design and land use considerations including:

  • Building height
  • Building mass and scale
  • Street level design
  • Open space
  • Vehicle parking
  • Permitted land use (commercial, residential, etc.)

The public is encouraged to participate in the process to implement the vision for a new downtown neighborhood.
