AIA: Local Connect: 39th Ave Greenway Hard-Hat Tour


The Regional & Urban Design Knowledge Community looks at issues that impact the urban environment with a focus on the Denver Metro Area.

For our August meeting, we have a hard-hat tour at 4pm of the 39th Avenue Greenway construction site. We’re then meeting at Oz Architecture for refreshments and a presentation on EcoDistricts by Julie Edwards.

Tour space is limited! RSVP below.

Please bring your own hard hat, as we will only have a limited number available onsite.

The 39th Avenue Greenway and Open Channel will effectively and safely convey
floodwater to the outfall at Globeville Landing Park. This channel is an integral part
of Platte to Park Hill: Stormwater Systems. It will be designed using a communityfocused
approach to provide the following benefits in addition to flood protection:

  • Add 12 acres of new recreational open space in the Cole neighborhood.

  • Enhance community connectivity, including a biking/walking trail between
    Franklin and Steele streets.

  • Improve quality of stormwater entering the South Platte River.

4:00pm Site Tour begins at the SEMA Construction job trailer, at 40th and York.
5:30pm EcoDistricts Intro presentation at Oz Architecture (3003 Larimer St, Denver, CO 80205)

PPE Requirements for the site include:
• Long pants (no shorts/skirts)
• Hard hat
• Safety glasses
• Safety vest
• Hard-soled shoes (no open toe shoes)
