As Metro Denver’s investment in regional transit has skyrocketed, where has that left local, intra-city and “last mile” transportation options? Join ULI for a conversation about public and private initiatives that aim to help people get around using multimodal methods. Then learn from leading developers about the opportunities and implications for new projects.

We’ll hear about Colfax BRT, “Mobility Hubs,” greenway-oriented development, and how cities can leverage mobility options. Then we’ll dive into case studies from around Metro Denver. Let’s see what’s planned and make our own suggestions to encourage smart land use and more car-free trips!

Topics/projects include:

  • Colfax Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and future development
  • Greenways-oriented development
  • Business-oriented circulators (like the Lone Tree Link serving Charles Schwab and light rail)
  • 303 Artway
  • Ride at RiNo
  • Giambrocco land assemblage at 38th and Blake,  including “woonerf”
