Denver council OKs $19.3 million purchase deal for CDOT sites, but affordable housing components aren’t a sure thing yet

CDOT plans to abandon both properties this year when it moves its headquarters and Region 1 office into a new $70 million building southeast of the West Colfax Avenue and Federal Boulevard interchange.

The Kentro Group, which is footing the full cost to buy the properties, still must return to the council in coming months to request new zoning for one site, at 4201 E. Arkansas Ave., that now is home to CDOT’s headquarters. It lacks zoning that would support Kentro’s housing and retail plans.

On the other property, which contains a CDOT regional office at 2000 S. Holly St., the developer’s plan to include assisted-living housing as part of a larger market-rate development is dependent upon obtaining an adjoining gas station, a representative told a council committee last month.

    Denver council OKs $19.3 million purchase deal for CDOT sites, but affordable housing components aren't a sure thing yet
    Denver city officials received the official green light Monday to carry out a complex $19.3 million purchase deal that will result in the transfer of two Colorado Department of Transportation administration properties to a private developer.

Remembering the People Killed While Walking and Biking on Denver Streets in 2017

Hoglund was crossing Federal Boulevard at Howard Place in a painted crosswalk when Ruben Paseiro-Lopez rammed him with a Nissan Altima.

On the morning of February 1, Chavez began crossing Federal Boulevard at Louisiana Avenue. Chavez had almost crossed all six lanes when Damian Garcia, driving a Ford F250 “at...

On July 28, Emily Gomez, 81, ran over and killed Phelps as he biked on 51st Avenue near Federal Boulevard. Gomez faces charges for careless driving resulting in death.

Glade was trying to cross 20th Street at Blake when Adrian Escalante, 28, driving a Range Rover at between 50 and 55 mph, hit and killed him. Escalante fled, but police arrested him later. He faces several charges, including vehicular homicide.

Padilla, a mother of three, was walking on Federal Boulevard near Ellsworth Avenue on the night of August 27 when she was struck and killed. The driver, Edward J. Sack, faces a vehicular homicide charge. Tina Padilla

The public only knows two things about this crash: A driver killed Amos near the intersection of Leetsdale Drive and Quebec Street on December 21, and that driver faces no charges. Denver PD has not released the police report, so details are scarce.

    Remembering the People Killed While Walking and Biking on Denver Streets in 2017
    Last year, 51 people lost their lives in traffic crashes, including 14 people walking and one person biking. Citywide traffic fatalities fell in 2017, from 61 lives lost the year before to 51, according to the Denver Police Department. That's 51 too many, but it's an improvement Denver should build on.

"Drivers killed 14 people walking on Denver streets in 2017. Half of these fatal collisions happened on Federal Boulevard. Take a look at WalkDenver's new report and it’s no wonder why. Federal Boulevard is designed like a highway but cuts through residential neighborhoods and carries large numbers of bus riders."

    Why Federal Boulevard Is Denver's Deadliest Street - And How to Fix It
    The Colorado Department of Transportation and Denver Public Works know how to fix it, but will they? Drivers killed 14 people walking on Denver streets in 2017. Half of these fatal collisions happened on Federal Boulevard. Take a look at WalkDenver's new report and it's no wonder why.

"Colorado’s monthly average one-bedroom apart...

"Colorado’s monthly average one-bedroom apartment rent did increase to an average of $1,004 per month. Denver is a different story and came in at 21 of the most expensive one-bedroom rent at $1,299 for 2017. ... However on the bright side, Denver dwellers love their city — and between the sun, snow and scenery, Denver has consistently ranked among the nations best places to live."

    How Rent Changed in Denver Over the Last Year
    Among buying a car, finishing college and getting married, owning a home has been revered as a lifetime accomplishment. In recent years, however - as real estate prices climb in Denver - it has become increasingly difficult for that aspiration to become a reality in the Mile High.

Recycle Christmas Trees through Denver’s Treecycle Program! Trees will be collected over two extended weekends in January People who participate in Treecycle are helping support the City’s goal of increasing its recycling rate to 34% or greater, as outlined in Mayor Hancock’s 2020 Sustainability Goals. Here’s how to participate in the 2018 program: On Friday, January 5 or Friday, January 12, Denver Solid Waste Management customers should set their trees out for collection at their normal trash set-out location no later than 7:00am. Trees will be collected no later than 5:00pm on Monday, January 8 or Monday, January 15. Only real trees are accepted for recycling; no artificial or flocked trees. Remove all decorations, lights, and tree stands. Please set trees at least two feet away from trash, compost and recycling containers, cars, and other obstacles. Do not place trees inside bags or collection carts. Denver residents who are unable to participate in Treecycle can recycle their trees for free at two drop-off locations through Wednesday, January 31: Cherry Creek Recycling Drop-Off (7352 E. Cherry Creek Drive South) Havana Nursery (10450 Smith Road) It’s important for residents to keep in mind, extra trash crews will not collect trees before or during Treecycle. All trees collected during Treecycle will be turned into mulch, which will be made available for free to Denver residents at the City’s annual Mulch Giveaway and Compost Sale in the spring!
