Roughly six miles to the east of downtown Denver sits one of the biggest urban redevelopment projects in the U.S. in the past quarter century: Central Park.
When the airport moved east, local voters decided the old airport space should be transformed into a neighborhood. Today, even though most trees and homes in Central Park are barely a decade old, it would be more accurate to call it a community than a neighborhood.
