ULC President, Aaron Miripol and Partners Highlight TOD Project in North Denver
ULC President & CEO Aaron Miripol spoke as a panelist for Bisnow’s “The Denver Disruption 2.0,” a panel that explored the developments, neighborhoods, tech companies and innovators in Denver that are currently setting national trends. Miripol spoke on behalf of ULC in a panel dedicated to the $200 million Race Street transit-oriented development (TOD) case-study. The panel, which drew in over 100 guests, included panelists Jim Garcia, Founder and Executive Direct of Clinica Tepeyac, David Zucker, President of Zocalo Community Development and Jeff Romine, Chief Economist & Strategic Advisor at Denver Office of Economic Development.
Race Street Transit Oriented Development (TOD), which neighbors the $1B+ National Western Center redevelopment, is a multi sector approach to ensure permanent affordable and market rate housing options in the Elyria-Swansea neighborhood. The development will also allocate space for nonprofit facilities, so that these organizations may operate in an affordable space. The TOD at Race street will potentially increase the supply of permanently affordable housing by 500% in the neighborhood. All sectors – including public, private and nonprofit – are represented in this future development, helping to ensure long term community benefit in these North Denver neighborhoods.
Thank you to Bisnow for hosting the second annual “Denver Disruption” and to all of the panelists and moderator Liz Adams of CRL Associates, Inc. for elevating this unique project as a great example of how a multi-sector approach can result in great projects, great outcomes and new services for today’s and tomorrow’s Denver residents.
