Adjacent to established urban neighborhoods of Washington Park and Baker, Broadway Park will leverage and strengthen these and create a contemporary urban character that is authentically Denver.
Largely residential, Washington Park comprises 160 acres and centers on its namesake green space, a rectangular expanse with sport facilities, formal flower gardens and winding trails for cycling and jogging. An elegant boathouse overlooks Smith Lake, popular with kayakers and anglers. East of the park, Old South Gaylord Street is a bustling shopping district with chic fashion boutiques, galleries, sports bars and casual bistros.
Baker is an eclectic mix of industrial, commercial and residential properties that was granted the historic designation in 2000 as part of the Historic Preservation effort of the City of Denver. The same area designated as a local historic district had been entered into the National Register of Historic Places as South Side–Baker Historic District in 1985.
A diverse community of locals and transplants mingling among art galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants. Dozens of authentic food, drink and entertainment options within 5 or 6 blocks of Broadway Park. Home to street fairs, festivals and a new dedicated bike lane coming in 2021.
Through thoughtful, intelligent, and sustainable design, informed by a set of principles enshrined in a “Developers Design Directive”, Broadway Park is committed to ensuring architectural excellence and harmonious design throughout the neighborhood. This commitment to the built form will be further reinforced by creatively designed open spaces and streetscapes that provide a vibrant pedestrian realm and which also facilitate opportunities for indoor/outdoor living and working.
Woven throughout Broadway Park are a series of inspiring public art pieces created by local and international artists. From a unique sidewalk mosaic designed by Clark Richert to large mural pieces and ornamental sculptures incorporated into new and existing buildings, the public art program at Broadway Park has a little something for everyone. The signature artistic identifier of the project is a collection of monumental sculptural works by internationally acclaimed Bauhaus master Herbert Bayer. Bayer’s iconic pieces will serve as the anchors to the neighborhood open space network and gathering spaces.
Authentic and established, Broadway Park seeks to complement and strengthen the residential character and mixed use nature of South Broadway as a neighborhood to live, work and play in Denver.
