Project Background

The Redevelopment of St. Anthony’s & The Revitalization of West Colfax

In 2006, City councilman Rick Garcia helped convene the St. Anthony Redevelopment Task Force to study and recommend a set of guiding principles for the site’s redevelopment. Chief among them:

  • Catalyzing & anchoring the West Colfax and Sloan’s Lake neighborhoods
  • Higher density residential development to attract high quality retail and neighborhood services
  • Preservation of the 16th Avenue Chapel and creation of a pedestrian friendly streets
  • Adaptive reuse of the Kuhlman building
  • Complement and revitalize retail development along West Colfax
    West Colfax Plan

In addition to the Task Force recommendations, Denver’s Department of Community Planning and Development prepared the West Colfax Corridor Plan identifying the redevelopment of the SAH site as a unique opportunity to develop a “town center” for the South Sloan’s Lake and West Colfax neighborhoods. Chief among the plan’s recommendations is the introduction of Denver’s existing street grid through the site and a clear hierarchy of street typologies to ensure that the new development has a robust pedestrian environment.
