All good points. I know nothing else about this project, other than the rendering I saw. Who knows if this thing gets off the ground or not. Rest assured though, I put my name in the hat for a 25% discount

2) This is a major project. An unknown developer would not be able to undertake this type of project without a major partner (such as EastWest). I do not see any evidence of such partnership.

3) It does not look like the POC for the building has any development experience.

If I had to guess, who ever is proposing this has the land under contract and is trying to piece a deal together that they will then try to sell to an outfit that can handle this type of project. Until I see more concrete info, I am filing this in with El Jebel.
Good points, but I believe Paradise is working with Hines on the Bell Park project, so it is conceivable that they could work together on something like this as well. Trevor Hines is building condos in Denver so they are obviously bullish on that market.

At the very least, Buzz Geller SEEMS like he is attempting to do something other than land bank.

Both the rendering and program I know of is different than the website, from the overall design to the Development team. I'm assuming Twister and I saw the same concept - a more South Beach-esque design? In any event, I don't think this deal will ever get off the ground - it'll take a few million dollars of investment just to try and get the pre-sales needed to get a construction loan.

Like a few million that can be gained from selling off putting under contract multiple parcels in your portfolio? Buzz probably has about ~$25M in the bank from deals done over the last couple of years.

But it's still probably a Buzz Geller project..... not a great history of success there.

CastleScott, the higher perspective was about 180ft, the other about 100ft.

Looks like "stuff" is being delivered to the Ascent site in the Union Station neighborhood if you zoom in from the Coloradan construction cam. Appears construction is imminent!

Colorado Rockies, Stadium District reach lease agreement for Coors Field

. . .

The Rockies have proposed creating a Hall of Fame there, or some sort of ballpark experience area, as well as apartments and offices.

Money from those businesses would help pay for maintenance costs at Coors Field. Those are often paid by fees from naming rights, but Coors made a deal when they put their name on the stadium; after a one-time payment in the early 90s, they owned the naming “in perpetuity,” meaning for life.

And that takes us to the negotiations Wednesday, when the Rockies and the Stadium District announced that they reached a 30-year lease agreement for Coors Field. It’s a $200 million dollar lease, with $2.5 million paid each year.

The team and the District also reached a 99-year ground lease agreement for the land, meaning that officially, the Rockies can develop the land during that time. Once the ground lease ends, the land is essentially turned back over to the District. The Rockies will pay $125 million during the first 30 years of the agreement, and a nominal fee each year that follows.

I wonder if a skyscraper hanging from an asteroid would meet a design board specifications.

That will happen just before Tabor II.

Interesting that you would say "more South Beach-esque", since the developer is apparently Renzi Development of Naples, Florida. Doing a search on the name leads to a number of articles about bankruptcy, however.

--Developing that lot - GREAT. (As an aside, I think that lot actually falls outside the LoDo district. Would be fascinating to get something modern and glassy plopped right there, ha.)

--Tying the Rockies to Coors Field for 30 more years - GREAT. (By the time that lease expires, that ballpark will be legitimately historic and nobody will ever think to tear it down.)

--Not coming back to the voters again - GREAT.

Agree with all that. The amazing things is that stadiums the same age or younger than Coors Field are now being torn down. Damn, that makes me feel old when a stadium I think of as still relatively "new" (Turner Field, Rangers Stadium), has gone through its entire "life cycle" and is now being replaced.

While on the one hand it shows that Coors Field was extremely well designed and continues to be economically useful and successful 23 years later, it also shows the level to which taxpayer subsidies of sport owner billionaires has gone: not only must tax payers build billionaires stadiums, but in many cases they will be expected to tear down the old one and build yea another new one 20 years later!

Does the uber professional email address of kevingeraghty128@gmail.com not give you confidence? The dude owns a bar, so there's that.

A 2 bedroom 2 bath condo at 320 does sound awfully nice, though!

Impossible to track everything.

I know this project has been mentioned but the confirmation of construction funding is always Great News.

Heavy equipment was on the site last week, a nice site after that hole was sitting in the ground for many years.

Coors field is the 3rd oldest park in the national league. Which is nuts.

Was able to walk through downtown between meetings today, more core drilling at 17th and California. No public info on this one still?

If Denver can't get a new tallest there, how about 17th and Welton, 18th and Welton, or 18th and Glenarm? Any or all of those will do, please and thank you.
