ULI Young Leaders Group Tour of Exchange at Boulevard One

PUBLISHED 12/19/2022

Urban Land Institute (ULI) Colorado hosted their quarterly tour this past fall at Exchange at Boulevard One, presented by the Young Leaders Group (YLG) Committee. Nick Kitaeff, Development Director at Confluent Development, walked attendees through the property  to explain the development process, and challenges and opportunities that made this project successful. This development boasts a variety of uses – restaurants, retail, entertainment and office within two- and three-story buildings, totaling roughly 139,000 SF.


Norris Design collaborated with Confluent Development, Open Studio Architecture and Lowry Redevelopment Authority to activate the space with outdoor seating, shared courtyards and gathering spaces for people living and working in East Denver. Both surface and structured parking are provided complemented by public gathering spaces located within the center.


It was rewarding to tour a completed project while understanding its history and evolution to its completed state. Members of the community have already created their own special identity within the project. —  Matthew Hanson, Project Manager



The newest location for Denver Beer Company is also underway at Boulevard One! This fourth Metro Denver location will feature an indoor-outdoor taproom. Overall, this development serves as a well-connected urban community with local art pieces woven throughout the site design.
