During the midst of a recession, we needed to transform an urban infill brownfield into a contemporary mixed density community.

Homebuyers wanted new construction with traditional urban character. A place with pedestrian-friendly streetscapes, modern designs and social spaces.

We envisioned Midtown. A smart-growth, modern boutique neighborhood capable of revitalizing land and inspiring community. A place planned with ideas from the best historic neighborhoods in Denver and reimagined for the future with innovative solutions built for tomorrow.

Streetscapes were designed to enhance the pedestrian experience. Bump outs were incorporated for broader, friendlier access.

Diagonal parking was introduced to invite main street activation, build community and create a town center feel.

A mix of densities and diverse lot sizes add character to the community while offering opportunity for everyone.
