As part of the acquisition process, Kentro Group is rezoning the property out of the current Campus Educational Institution (CMP-EI2) zoning into a zone district that better aligns with the surrounding uses and area.

Disposition

CDOT is moving to a new building near Colfax and Federal in the spring or summer of 2018.  State law requires owned by the State of Colorado to be offered first to local government entities.  The City and County of Denver exercised the option to acquire both 4201 E Arkansas Avenue and 2000 S Holly Street.  Denver selected Kentro Group to develop the two properties based on confidence in delivering a project beneficial to the community.
