West Side ‘Sloans’ to replace St. Anthony’s

E-mail Print PDF

An artist’s rendering of a street scene in Sloans, a new West side development on the old St. Anthony’s hospital site.Move over Lowry. Move over Stapleton.

Well, not exactly.

Not on that scale, anyway.

But the West Side of Denver is getting its own reconfigured, revisioned, urban landscape — a $300 million redevelopment adjacent to Sloan’s Lake.

This was revealed at a public meeting Wednesday evening, Jan. 22, at 1400 Quitman St. (the old Yeshiva Toras Chaim).

If the landscape artists and architects are to be believed, the redevelopment will be just as beautiful, practical and envirofriendly as its sister neighborhoods to the east.

When St. Anthony’s Central Hospital announced that it was closing its longtime West Side facility, in favor of an expanded, brand new facility further west, uncertainty loomed.

What would replace it?

Would property values decline?

Would urban blight set in?

By all accounts — and after years of planning — the exact opposite looms. A new, mixed use neighborhood, complete with a boutique hotel, is scheduled for groundbreaking this year.

That is, after the demolition of St. Anthony’s is complete.

Speaking of which, 34,000 tons of concrete from the old St. Anthony’s buildings will be “repurposed” for use in the new streets and building foundations of “Sloans.”

Sloans.

That’s it.

That’s the name of the redevelopment.
