The vision for Denver’s newest neighborhood reached a major milestone in September when ground was officially broken for Fox Park, a new 41-acre mixed-use community located at the site of the former Denver Post printing facility near I-70 and I-25.
The Vita Fox Park Development Team joined partners World Trade Center Denver, Virgin Hotels, Trammell Crow Company, Saunders Construction, Tryba Architects, and City leadership to celebrate the groundbreaking. Featuring a 14-acre network of new open spaces, rooftop terraces, and amenity decks created in partnership with the Denver Botanic Gardens, the project is focused on sustainability and vital connections with nature. Walkable streets, bike trails and access to multi-modal transportation are key components of the project, which is located near the Globeville light rail station.
Fox Park will bring transformational benefits to the nearby Globeville community through the introduction of over 1,000 mixed-income and affordable housing units, a community benefit fund, construction job opportunities, small business enterprise, public art projects and employment programs for low-income residents, providing a diverse and sustainable neighborhood economy.
Anchoring the mixed-use community will be the new home of the World Trade Center Denver, establishing Fox Park as a new center for international commerce and culture. Virgin Hotels CEO Sir Richard Branson announced his brand’s newest hotel will be constructed in Fox Park, Virgin’s first Colorado location. In addition, adaptive reuse of the former Denver Post press building will introduce over 500,000 square feet of development space creating opportunities for retail, entrepreneurship and innovation.
Fox Park includes 1.5 million square feet of office developed by Trammell Crow Company and residential developments by Zocalo Community Development and Buckingham Companies. A true mixed-use, sustainable community centered around open space, Fox Park is set to transform Denver and attract significant global investment in the region.
