The St. Anthony’s Central Campus Redevelopment Master Plan reconnects the neighborhood and Sloan’s Lake Park, creating a new mixed-use district and a community destination for the West Colfax neighborhood.
St. Anthony’s Central is an 18-acre hospital campus that has been an icon in the West Colfax neighborhood for over a century. After the hospital moved to a new campus, the hospital on W. Colfax Avenue closed in 2012. RNL prepared a redevelopment master plan that reconnects the neighborhood and Sloan’s Lake Park, creating a new mixed-use district and a community destination for the West Colfax neighborhood.
The master plan includes a range of building types and densities, from smaller scale townhomes at the edges to 5-story and taller, mixed-use buildings along a new Raleigh Street, which will become the core of the district.
In addition to creating the master plan, RNL led several aspects of the planning and design process. RNL managed the GDP approval process, prepared a comprehensive set of Design Standards and Guidelines, and coordinated the LEED-Neighborhood Design application, leading to Gold certification. As the project moved into implementation, RNL also designed all of the public streetscapes and plazas. The streetscape includes several innovative strategies to manage and clean stormwater, promote tree growth and conserve water. These innovations will support a unique streetscape and a vibrant neighborhood destination.
