I wouldn't mind if they just redid the parking around there. They spend a ton of land on drive aisles, which are horribly placed. It isn't good use of land for pedestrians, and it still isn't great for cars. I think they could redo some of the lanes and either extend the buildings or add in more pedestrian/cafe space.

I'm really upset that they redid the light onto 21st and didn't have any talks about to fix that area.

That giant fenced off lawn where Miss Jacksonís and Pettyís were is much of the problem for me, but it also seems something else has changed.  It feels like a place just trying to hang on and ride the coat tails of its past without expending any effort or capital to adapt to the future.  If I didnít live close by, Iím not sure I would make much effort to go there anymore.

An open greenspace would have been a logical use, but the presence of a big solid fence just screams "Hazmat," or at the least, not particularly inviting to an investor or developer.

Following in the path of those sort of areas would be great for Utica Square, but it would be resisted pretty strongly from surrounding neighborhoods. I wonder if they could even get in one mixed use building like Cherry Creek North. It would be great for them to try though. They'd have to make it upscale like the pricey condo buildings surrounding it. It would take several of those to turn the area from outdoor shopping mall into a mini downtown.

I think thatís the direction they will eventually go just need to have the vision and start executing it.  The demographics and location within midtown will support it.

This buildings looks like it pretty much finished.  What are they building across the street at 21st & Xanthus?  ARK is currently tearing down the old 2 story medical office building.
