Plans progress as Westminster Mall
site is prepared for massive overhaul On June 21, the Denver Post ran an article updating the public on plans to give
the city of Westminster
a downtown area at the former site of the Westminster Mall. Back in May of 2011, Margaret Jackson of the Denver Post wrote about Westminster's
announcement to demolish the struggling mall and its plans to reinvent the
area by creating a downtown for the city.
The first step, she explained, was the slow acquisition of the properties
associated with the mall so that the city could have control over its
development and future. This had just
been accomplished when the article ran more than two years ago. In a Denver Post article,
Howard Pankratz updated
the public on the progress, reiterating that the new development will
function as a downtown area, and that this type of repurposing for old mall
properties is a growing trend. "The city said it is working with internationally recognized
urban-planning firm Torti Gallas and Partnersto
create a blueprint for the redevelopment of the 105-acre site at U.S. 36 and
Sheridan Boulevard," writes Pankratz. Many believe plans will be similar to the Bel Mar development
and the Stapleton development in Denver. In a city
that, overall, does not rank highly on walkability and central shopping
districts, this redevelopment will be a welcome addition to many current Westminster residents
and attract new residents.
