Denver's biggest development projects underway in 2022
Here are 10 notable projects Denver developers tell us to watch this year:
- The National Western Campus: The first of three Colorado State University buildings opened in January, with the others coming online in late 2022. The CSU Spur campus is part of the development of a 250-acre, site in North Denver.
- River Mile: This 4.7-million-square-foot, mixed-use development aims to revitalize outdoor spaces adjacent to the South Platte River. Commercial space is now available.
- Colorado Convention Center: An expansion estimated to generate $85 million annually in economic activity will feature an 80,000-square-foot ballroom — the largest in the state — and a rooftop terrace.
- Loretto Heights Campus: The redevelopment of Pancratia Hall into 70-plus affordable townhomes is nearly complete, and an additional housing development on the historic campus is expected later this year.
- 16th Street Mall: Renovations worth nearly $150 million are slated to begin by summer to improve aging infrastructure, the look and feel of the downtown space.
- Populus: A 13-story, mixed-use building designed by world-renowned architecture firm Studio Gang will open in 2023 and feature hotel rooms, micro apartments and a public rooftop bar in Civic Center Park, near 14th and Court Place.
- Emily Griffith Hotel: This $36.5 million redevelopment project will transform the 140,000-square-foot former school into a 250-key hotel slated to open in the second quarter of 2022.
- Greyhound Station: Demolition of the aging bus stop will be completed this year to make room for two 400-foot towers that will contain multiple restaurants and retail units on the ground level.
- The Flyway: This 32-acre project in far northeast Denver will bring a mix of regional and national retailers and restaurants anticipated to open by spring.
- Denver Zoo: The park's crane species will be housed in a new netted enclosure, which will include updated landscaping and fencing.
