DENVER-Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, District 1 Councilman Rick Garcia, and St. Anthony Hospital’s CEO George Zara recently created a joint task force to explore redevelopment options for the St. Anthony Central campus, currently on 16 acres near West Colfax Avenue and Raleigh Street in Northwest Denver. In March 2005, Centura Health and Catholic Health Initiatives announced it would pursue replacement and relocation of the St. Anthony Central campus to Lakewood.

“While we obviously wished that St. Anthony Central could remain within the Denver city limits, we understand the constraints its current campus places on the hospital’s ability to grow in the future,” says Hickenlooper. “This task force is the first step in our proactive efforts, working with St. Anthony and the west Denver community, to ensure the site becomes a positive economic engine for the West Colfax corridor and surrounding areas.”

The St. Anthony Central Community Advisory Task Force–composed of neighborhood representatives and city officials, as well as hospital, business and real estate development representatives–will help identify opportunities and strategies to address the conversion and transformation of the current facility into a community redevelopment complex.

“The potential reuse of this site provides a significant economic and social change opportunity for the West Colfax area,” says Garcia, whose district includes the site. “The St. Anthony Central Hospital infill redevelopment is as big for northwest Denver as the Stapleton and Lowry projects have been for East Denver.” In addition to Garcia and Zara, Laura Aldrete of the Denver Urban Renewal Authority will chair the task force.
