St Anthony Central Hospital
On January 15th, Enviro Finance Group closed on the St Anthony’s Central Hospital site (See Denver Post article). This sale, coming only a year and a half after the hospital move is another indication of West Colfax’s appeal, and that, in contrast to other sites, redevelopment is on the way. Demolition will begin shortly.
This Hospital, established in in 1892, moved from its 19 acre site in the heart of West Colfax in 2011. The BID believes redevelopment of the site will bring new vitality and a significant number of new residents, and potentially jobs, to the neighborhood, and is looking forward to working with EFG to support those outcomes. Meanwhile, the hospital has committed to provide on-going health care services on the site, and EFG’s master planning is drawing on the 2007 recommendations from the St Anthony Central Task Force appointed by Mayor Hickenlooper.
