Construction is expected to get underway sometime this summer on the first two buildings of an ambitious mixed-use project calling for nearly 600,000 square feet of total residential, retail, and office space.
The proposed Gates District at Broadway Station, a joint project between the Legend Partners of Denver and the Austin, Texas-based Endeavor Real Estate Group, will go up at the northwest corner of South Broadway and Mississippi Avenue.
The ten-acre site was once the home to the Gates Corporation rubber factory, a more than 100 year-old manufacturing complex including some thirty interconnected buildings that was demolished in 2014.
As planned, phase one of the project will see the construction of two buildings making up some 46,000 square feet of retail, 170,000 square feet of office space, and just under 300 residential units.
Work on phase one is slated for completion by the spring of 2022.
Ultimately, nearly 900 residential units are expected to be built as part of the project, which is being designed by the Denver-based Shears Adkins Rockmore architecture firm, with a total 380,000 square feet of office space.
More than two years ago the Denver City Council approved a redevelopment and tax support plan to get the project off the ground.
