The River Mile is bringing Denver back to the South Platte. With a full mile of reclaimed riverfront. With dozens of acres of new parks and restored wildlife habitat. And with a river made whole again — returned to its original depth and character. Reconnecting the city to the Colorado outdoors.
A new way to city
The River Mile isn’t just a new part of downtown. It’s a new kind of downtown. A fresh pattern of city neighborhood that brings workplaces together with everyday essentials, a remarkable variety of residences and an abundance of clean, healthy Colorado nature. Giving each day a greater sense of flow and fun. Turning the city into a benefits package.

Union Station THE CENTER OF DENVER’S TRANSIT UNIVERSE

Condé Nast Traveler calls Coors Field “one of the country’s top sports stadiums.” Which means you don’t have to love baseball to enjoy an afternoon spent at Coors Field. You just have to love sunshine, craft beer and a fabulous mountain view.
