A NEW DENVER NEIGHBORHOOD, OPEN TO ALL.
A PLACE WHERE THE CITY AND NATURE COME TOGETHER.
ONE MILE OF RIVERFRONT TRANSFORMED.
WELCOME TO THE RIVER MILE.
THERE IS A SYMBIOSIS THAT NATURALLY OCCURS BETWEEN CITIES AND RIVERS.
It has happened throughout history, and it’s happening again – here. The story of this new urban district will be written around the rediscovery and revitalization of the South Platte. And the transformation of this stretch of the river into a mile-long social catalyst. The plan for this new urban district will unlock the waterfront as no other place in Denver does. Homes, restaurants, retail and entertainment offerings will open up to the river.
It will be one of the city’s great places –where people will gather, take a lunch break, enjoy the view, meet friends for a drink after work, go to a concert, and experience a touch of nature. Even cast a fly in hopes of landing a wily urban trout.
Yes, trout. Reintroduced recently in this stretch of the South Platte. The Revesco team will be working closely with the Greenway Foundation and other stakeholders in support of their mission to further enhance the natural environment and water quality of the river.
In the end, river ecology and urban ecology flow together, creating one complete, sustainable living environment. We take care of the river, and the river takes care of us. And the result is a complex, vibrant community like no other. This is the plan – but some might call it destiny.
As the song says, take me to the river.
