Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe Vision Plan
Building upon the City of Denver’s La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood plan, Hangar 41 initiated a visioning plan for the Art District on Santa Fe including wider, more pedestrian friendly sidewalks along Santa Fe Drive, as well as proposals for the taming of traffic, greater density and better landscaping and hardscapes. Our vision for the neighborhood looks at creatively re-branding the Art District including an “art library”, the creation of a civic center with “art tower”, re-utilization of the alley ways; and a creative light rail station connected to the Art District via a tree lined art boulevard. Throughout this process we included community outreach as a way to create consensus within the neighborhood as a catalyst for change and are now working with local government entities and funding sources to achieve this vision. This project has been published in the Spring 2013 edition of the AIA’s Colorado Architect magazine, and in the Denver Post on March 7th, 2012.
