After a full year, it’s that time again to re-visit our 3D Future Skyline. With many more developments on the board over the past year, there are a significant number of changes to our future skyline update. To revisit our previous posts for this special feature, head on over to the following link: 3D Future Skyline Post Archive.
A huge thank you to Ryan Keeney for the images and keeping the model up to date!
As a reminder, the buildings have been color-coded to match our DenverInfill Project Map, where yellow is residential, orange is office, red is hotel, and blue is civic/other. Mixed-use is indicated by a combination of these colors. Completed buildings, for which Google has not yet added their own models, are colored gray.
Let’s begin with the south and east neighborhoods: Baker, Speer, and Cherry Creek. As you can see, Cherry Creek keeps going through a significant transformation with many new developments.
Next up, here is the Golden Triangle and La Alma/Lincoln Park. The Golden Triangle is seeing an uptick in larger development which will help fill in all of the surface parking lots still scattered throughout the neighborhood.
Central Downtown is continually seeing taller development with Arapahoe Square adding multiple 20+ story proposals. This will add a good amount of height and density directly north of Central Downtown.
Uptown, Lower Highland, and Jefferson Park are continuing to see development with larger projects going up in Jefferson Park.
Even though DenverInfill hasn’t covered much of West Denver, it is also seeing an uptick in development, especially around West Colfax and Sloans Lake.
Let’s wrap up with River North which is exploding with development. The Denargo Market and Brighton Boulevard corridor keeps seeing a significant amount of development. However, that looks light when compared to what is proposed around the 38th and Blake commuter rail station. This development will create skyline of its own if a large portion of the proposed projects get built.
That’s a wrap! As you can see, the development boom in and around Downtown keeps on trekking with no slowdown in sight.
