The next Urban Land Institute – Colorado “Explorer Series” event is set for this Thursday, September 8!

The event is “TOD Down South” and will provide participants with an in-depth panel discussion and walking tour of two Transit Oriented Development (TOD) projects recently completed along the southeast I-25 (T-REX) light rail line…

The Apartments at Yale Station: A joint venture between Koelbel & Co. and Mile High Development featuring a new six-story, 50-unit affordable residential building that replaced a gas station. Sixty percent leased at the time of its July 2011 opening, the Apartments are being marketed to long-time south Denver residents who are ready to leave their single-family homes but don’t want to leave the area.

Vallagio at Inverness: Recently voted the Denver region’s best Live-Work-Play neighborhood in a DRCOG poll, Vallagio consists of lofts, flats, villas, an entire district of independent “foodie” restaurants, an art space, a covered pedestrian bridge connection to RTD’s Dry Creek Station and, somewhat unique among TODs, the option for living on a golf course.

This ULI-Colorado Explorer event is this Thursday, September 8, from 2-6 PM and includes a hosted reception at Vallagio, and also includes travel via RTD light rail, with free RTD passes available for registered participants. For specific time, location, and agenda, please visit the event website. Registration is available for both ULI members and non-members are welcome. Please visit this event’s registration page here at the ULI-Colorado website.

See you on Thursday!
