Westminster Pushes For Downtown Development

Westminster Pushes For Downtown Development

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 Partners to 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 in Lakewood 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.
