Mariposa Redevelopment Plan
Location: Denver, Colorado. Neighborhood, District, and Corridor
Drafted by Mithun, this plan seeks to develop a health- and transit-oriented neighborhood with a spectrum of affordable housing and mixed uses. Primary goals include tripling housing density; enabling walkable and bikable connections to adjacent neighborhoods, building a new community-focused bike-sharing station; and authentically engaging all community stakeholders. Open spaces are provided in each block of redevelopment, increasing pedestrian access to nature and complimenting green infrastructure improvements. The 8-phase redevelopment plan has attracted $40 million in federal funds and demonstrated local leadership and innovation through a health impact assessment, pilot greywater system and low impact design for stormwater management.Read more at this project's website.
