Another downtown Denver parking lot will soon be plowed under to make way for a mixed-use development. This project has the potential to be particularly unique. It will have space for Dinger.
Stantec, a multi-national architectural design firm, this week released renderings of a forthcoming outdoor plaza complex it is designing on behalf of the Colorado Rockies. The structure, which is expected to include restaurants, offices, a hotel and residences revolving around a screen-laden public plaza, will rise where a parking lot now sits at 19th and Wazee streets. The project’s chief attraction, according to the designer, will be all about baseball: The Rockies’ team hall of fame.
“The plaza is designed as a pre- and post-game gathering place for Rockies fans, complete with unique restaurants and state of the art audio and visual systems,” Stantec principal Larry Weeks said in a news release.
“Beyond baseball, the plaza will serve as Denver’s ‘outdoor room,’ a year-round space that can accommodate neighborhood concerts, festivals and other activities,” added the company’s senior principal Daniel Aizenman.
