PLAN OVERVIEW The plan creates extraordinary places and development opportunities with an integrated network of streets, open spaces and views. These dynamic districts and places nurture a collaborative and distinctly Colorado culture.

Three Distinct Districts 1 PRINTING PLANT The former Denver Post Printing Press Facility— expanded from 227,000 SF to 415,000 SF—anchors the Printing Plant. New surrounding development benefits from the existing infrastructure and industrial character of the adapted structure. 2 FOX PARK Fox Park is a new residential district with townhomes and high-rise living distinguished by park, mountain and downtown views. 3 BRICK YARD Located on the Former Denver Brick and Pipe Co. fabrication site, the Brick Yard is a creative district with live/work lofts, micro-units and high density mixed-use. Galapago Street Market, Maker’s Alley and Huron Street Rail Park infuse the district with industrial character and collaborative public spaces.
