The Denver Design District touch proposal converges culture, enterprise, and lifestyle to create a verdant, livable, community-focused urban atmosphere. The district’s current big-box development, which serves the prototypical car-centric suburban model, is transformed into one of Denver’s most distinctive neighborhoods. touch establishes new methods of interaction and collaboration through multi-modal transit connections, vertical integration, increased density, and open space to create an engaged and vibrant lifestyle. Linked through Alameda Station and unified by connective landscape, the district serves the broader Denver region as a destination for events, leisure, and gathering. The vision utilizes its local and regional resources in response to a new generation that demands unprecedented integration of activity, technology, culture, diversity, and choice. Adaptive, connective and livable, touch creates an enduring urban community for the 21st century and beyond.
