Kentro Group is a private real estate development and investment company founded in 2004 and based in Denver. Kentro Group was selected by the City and County of Denver to purchase and develop the former Colorado Department of Transportation Headquarters located at 4201 E. Arkansas. 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. Please visit KentroGroup.com for more information on our company and use this page to stay up to date with the community outreach and rezoning process. We look forward to working together with all stakeholders.
The Virginia Village/Ellis Community Association (VVECA) has formed a Special Committee to work on the Development Agreement with Kentro Group. To contact the VVECA Special Committee please e-mail email@example.com.
*Additional community meetings will be scheduled throughout the rezoning process.
Meeting dates will be posted to this site as they become available.
Kentro Group and the City of Denver formed an agreement addressing neighborhood priorities and critical criteria related to land use, planning, infrastructure, affordable housing, open space and other developments standards. Here is a link to the final Development Agreement.
Kentro Group has been working with the neighborhood and a group of nearby neighbors on a framework for a Good Neighbor Agreement that outlines some additional commitments we are willing to make to the neighborhood. Here is a link to the proposed Good Neighbor Agreement.
On May 15, 2018, Kentro Group submitted the required rezoning application for the 4201 E. Arkansas Ave site. The rezoning application seeks to rezone the property from the existing Campus (CMP-EI2) zone district to a mix of mixed-use and residential zone districts, including S-MX-3, S-MU-3, S-MX-5, S-MX-8 and S-MX-12.
You can access the rezoning application by clicking on the links below.
The rezoning application was discussed at length at the four Community Meetings held on January 25, March 8, April 5 and May 3. Links to the Presentations/PDFs for all of those meetings can be found on this website next to the date of each Community Meetings.

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.
