A major new mixed-use development has been proposed by the Colorado Rockies baseball club for the full-block surface parking lot adjacent to Coors Field at 19th and Wazee in Lower Downtown Denver. Here’s the location:
Owned by theDenver Metropolitan Major League Baseball Stadium District, the 130,224-square foot parcel, known as the stadium’s “West Lot” parking area, was a key component of the new lease signed this past spring by the Colorado Rockies and the Stadium District that keeps the Rockies at Coors Field for the next 30 years. You can get all the detailshereas reported by 9News.
Today, the development plans for the blockwere announcedpublicly by the Denver office ofStantec(formerlyRNL Design), the architecture firm hired by the Rockies to design the project.
The plans are still in the early stages, but the project could include hotel, office, residential, retail, and restaurant uses along with a significant public space activated through baseball-related entertainment and events, and a Colorado Rockies Hall of Fame. For more, check out these articles published online today by theColorado Real Estate Journaland303 Magazine. Preliminary renderings, courtesy of Stantec, show several 10-story connected buildings surrounding a grand public space. It appears all parking is underground.

This project is significant for not only the Rockies and the Stadium District, but for LoDo and all of Downtown Denver. This block is the largest development site remaining in Lower Downtown and, for the 22 years since Coors Field opened in 1995, has been a major gap in the urban fabric separating the vitality of the historic district from the stadium. This project will close that gap and significantly energize the connection between Coors Field and Lower Downtown.
The project is still in the early stages, but if all goes as planned, the Rockies hope to break ground on the project in 2018.

"We cannot thank Jim & Julie and the team at Ion Real Estate enough!!! We were very impressed with Jim's knowledge of the business and his drive to find us our perfect home; from the lender-side and how to get the best deal to the realtor-side and everything in between. As first time home buyers we really appreciated Jim's direction in gathering everything we would need. In addition to Jim's wonderful guidance, Julie was exceptional to work with too. She was always willing to listen to our concerns and was very encouraging on our journey hunting down our first home. She is so dedicated that she found us "our" home during the holidays and we were under contract by New Year's, which was a great way to start off the new year. She found us our dream home, in a great location and we couldn't be happier. I always recommend Jim, Julie and Ion whenever someone I know says they are looking to buy or sell their home. Go with Ion, they make dreams come true.
