Just two decades ago, the South Sheridan Commercial Corridor was a robust commercial center. Residents could catch a movie at the twin cinema, take their children for an afternoon at the skating rink or shop and dine at one of several retail establishments. Even with Denver’s booming economy, much of the 64-acre site off of South Sheridan Boulevard is a ghost town. The cinema, skating rink and nearly all of the retail has fled. The Target, once a retail anchor for the site, left for greener pastures in developing Belmar in Lakewood in 2011.

A five-party funding arrangement is to be considered by Denver City Council that would eventually allow some 2,800 new homes to be built on the former Stapleton International Airport property, which was decommissioned in the mid-1990s. The Stapleton “Five Parties” (City and County of Denver, Denver Urban Renewal Authority, Denver Public Schools, Forest City and Park Creek Metropolitan District) have agreed on an arrangement to fund and build an additional school, fire station and other infrastructure at Stapleton.
