Last week, The Denver Planning Board recommended the approval to rezone five one-story industrial and commercial/retail buildings along Bannock Street in the Overland neighborhood.
The subject properties are located between Evans Avenue and E Asbury Avenue, along South Bannock Street. The area is known for its blend of commercial, single- and multi-unit residential, and industrial uses, with significant recent public and private investments around Evans Station, signaling a transition to a more mixed-use environment.
Currently, the buildings are occupied by Infinite creations construction and Den Rec South Denver. The applicant has requested a rezoning to C-RX-5, which denotes Urban Center – Residential Mixed Use – 5 stories. This designation is suitable for residentially-dominated areas served primarily by collector or arterial streets, where a building scale of 2 to 5 stories is desired.
Considering the above, we anticipate a 5 story mixed-use building to break ground within the next 12-24 months to continue the redevelopment of the Overland neighborhood.
The land use, transportation and infrastructure committee meeting is schedule for May 9th. We'll be keeping track of this proposal and will return with any updates!
