River Mile gets green light from Denver City Council

The River Mile project won crucial approvals from the Denver City Council Monday evening, representing a major milestone in the process to create “human scale” development for a new urban center.

Designed in partnership with Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects, the River Mile is a 15 million sq ft development on a 62 acre site in Downtown Denver aiming to transform the way the city operates. It provides a variety of public open spaces and amenities such as community centre, school, daycare, library and transit hub. The Denver River Mile will be a cohesive mixed-use community, is walkable and transit oriented, connecting adjacent neighborhoods through two light rail stations, the Platte River bike trail, distributed vehicle access, and multiple pedestrian connections. It offers affordable housing where Denverites can live, work, and play at the heart of the City’s cultural centre.
