Sun Valley Redevelopment Master Plan and Healthy Living Initiative

Denver, CO

Innovation Hub

Sun Valley has formed an EcoDistrict to implement equitable, high performance redevelopment in the poorest census tract in the state. The Choice Neighborhoods Transformation Plan significantly expands housing choices, adds progressive district infrastructure, and supports microbusiness in a new Maker District.

Family and Healthy Living

A focus around youth includes family friendly housing surrounding the elementary school. A new riverfront park, South Platte River trail access, and gardens will welcome a vibrant and diverse community. The Healthy Living Action Plan and Design Guidelines leverage health research and resident experience to support social cohesion, healthy mind, daily active living and health equity outcomes.

Food Destination and Rapid Implementation

Sun Valley’s unique history of food production lives on with a commercial urban farm and food production facility. An international healthy food market will attract residents and visitors alike. The Plan helped secure a highly competitive $30M Choice Neighborhoods Grant, which will accelerate implementation of this significant mixed income redevelopment.
