Industrial site transformed into community asset

The shared facilities of the Auraria higher educational complex in downtown Denver serve a student population of over 45,000, and the campus has long needed expanded athletic facilities. In 2008 the Auraria Higher Education Center purchased approximately thirteen acres adjacent to the campus and hired Davis Partnership Architects with CannonDesign as the planning consultant, to design a new complex with multiple NCAA Division II compliant amenities. Located at the northeast end of campus, this location is a complicated urban brownfield site with numerous environmental remediation challenges. When completed, the site will be an excellent example of how an industrial property can be repurposed as a community asset. The completed tennis courts are currently in use, and the estimated date of completion of the entire project will be the Spring semester 2015. [Read More]
