The Implementation of Highlands’ Garden Village

Description: 

In 1996 Chuck Perry and Jonathan Rose began development on the former Elitch Gardens Amusement Park ten minutes from downtown Denver. Today, Highlands’ Park Village is a walkable, transit-linked, mixed-use, mixed- income village that provides a socially, environmentally and financially viable model for revitalizing underused sites in near-downtown neighborhoods across America. This session will explore the details of every element of this project, and focus on what worked and what did not.

Presenters:
