Turning an abandoned industrial corridor of Denver into a riverfront urban oasis

Steam on the Platte is a redevelopment project working to transform 3.2-acre plot in west Denver into an urban oasis.

It’s a mixed-use project in an abandoned industrial corridor, that boasts one of the city’s most beautiful landscapes: the South Platte River.

The neighborhood hopes to find synergy in juxtaposition of the old industrial history of steam plants and smokestacks, and the river’s natural landscape.

Denver’s largest remaining undeveloped exposed brick-and-timber warehouse is found there and will be transformed into new office space, thus recycling the property.

New residential space will be constructed and a restaurant will be placed in another existing building.
