8-story rezoning sought for parking lot across from Coors Field – The Denver Post

A building of up to eight stories — but no taller than Coors Field’s stands — could be developed across the street from the ballpark.

The owner of the 0.29-acre parking lot at 2000 Blake St. has asked the city to rezone it to allow for such a project.

FB 2000 Blake Street LLC, which is associated with Fillmore Property Group, a subsidiary of San Francisco-based Fillmore Capital Partners, purchased the property in 2019 for $4.4 million, according to public records.

As of Monday, no redevelopment plans had been submitted to the city for the property.

But in the rezoning application, the owners say any project would have at least two levels of retail space and that they are working with the city’s Housing Stability department to restrict about 12 percent of any residential units to people making 80 percent of the area median income.

That’s currently $56,000 annually for a single person in Denver.

“The proposed mixed-use development would enhance the neighborhood through high-quality urban design, preserve the authenticity of the ballpark and adjacent neighborhood, and celebrate history, architecture and culture,” the owner stated in the zoning application.

Calls to Fillmore Capital Partners were not immediately returned Monday.

A City Council committee is scheduled to consider the rezoning application Tuesday.

In 2019, at the same time Fillmore bought the Blake Street lot, it also paid a combined $13.3 million for the buildings at 1937, 1941 and 1949 Market St. New tenants were subsequently found for the buildings.
