South Westminster Station TOD | Westminster, CO

From Low Density Industrial Site to Vibrant Neighborhood

DESCRIPTION

South Westminster Transit Oriented Development [TOD] is a 100 acre redevelopment of an existing industrial neighborhood into a vibrant, mixed use neighborhood. The existing site [which required significant environmental remediation] is located adjacent to the Boulder/ Denver commuter rail tracks and was selected as the site for the first stop along this line out of Denver’s Union Station. The site is also adjacent to a significant regional urban drainage area that is now envisioned as a community park. The site program includes 1,100 units of housing; 334,000 sq. ft. of retail space; 240,000 sq. ft. of commercial office space; 67,000 sq. ft. of industrial space, and a series of pocket parks, a main street and a town green.
