Dear CBHD Members and Guests
Please find below the Agenda for the next meeting of the Colorado Boulevard Health Care District.
The meeting will be held on Thursday, February 6th at 4:00 pm at National Jewish Health. Steve Zweck-Bronner from the University of Colorado will give an update about the selection of a new developer. An announcement of the new developer will not be made at this meeting. We hope to hear where the Selection Committee and the Regents are in the selection process
and a timetable for the ultimate announcement of their choice.
We hope that you can join us. Thank you for your continued interest in the CBHD
and the redevelopment of 9th & Colorado Boulevard.

University of Colorado Update
Steve Zweck-Bronner, attorney for University of Colorado Anschutz Campus sent an announcement that the University is setting up a process to evaluate interest in the property. They are working on the evaluation mechanism to establish guidelines for whether companies are able to develop the site. The University has been receiving a lot of inquiries about the site. The preference remains for there to be a single buyer, but there are no set restrictions. Steve is willing to come back at a future meeting discuss the guidelines and expectations of the University regarding potential site developers.
Councilwoman Robb mentioned that the Mayor’s Office is interested in being involved with the redevelopment of the site.
DURA Public Hearing: Monday, July 22 at 5:30 at the City Council meeting regarding the urban renewal plan for the entire site, but TIF component is only for residential component.
Tina Axelrad: entitlements on the property which regulate the mix of uses are in place. These include the GDP and zoning. These envision a mix of uses which do not preclude large format retail. The only constraint to size (other than height) is whether the size fits into block layout, sufficient parking, and open space requirements.
Doug McKinnon, Principle of Lionstone Group
Lionstone formed 12 years ago private real estate investment firm; he and his partners all started with Gerald Hines Interest. Their previous projects include Gates East Campus and the Janus Investment Building (management).
King Soopers officials said Tuesday they’ve scrapped plans for a store at the former University of Colorado Hospital campus on Colorado Boulevard in Denver.
“The current site plan doesn’t allow us to create a store that’s functional or meets the expectation for our customer and to create a store for that unique Denver neighborhood,” said Kelli McGannon, a spokeswoman for the supermarket chain.

Dear CBHD Board Members,
Thank you for your time and dedication to the CBHD throughout 2012. It was a challenging and somewhat tumultuous time, and your perseverance through it was greatly appreciated. I’m so sorry it became quite difficult at times.
We have several challenges as we begin 2013. I’ll briefly mention them here and then we can discuss them in greater detail at our next meeting. (more…)
