Denver’s host real estate market is creating opportunities and challenges and questions abound around affordable housing, community development, and how to maintain a place for all while costs steadily rise. Denver’s Mariposa redevelopment project aimed higher than the average 15% retention that redevelopment usually can muster, and their success is in the numbers with over 50% retention for this innovative approach to redevelopment and transit. The Congress for the New Urbanism and Downtown Colorado, Inc. are excited to showcase Denver Housing Authority’s Mariposa, which includes affordable and market rate housing in a transit oriented development setting.


From Developer to Designer, Musician to Foodie, Mariposa has something for all! Urbanism Reimagined will consider the diversity of stakeholder in an existing neighborhood in a hot market and dive into the hows and whys to thrive. As Denver Housing Authority dives into Sun Valley, the Mariposa Project is the blueprint to guide what works and how to improve!


Public, private, and non-profit partners come together to talk about the

process, projects, and the people that make Mariposa so unique!

Join organizers and the Mariposa family for an open house session that

showcases the Mariposa project boards, visioning processes, and provides a

tour of the space activated by Youth on Record. Youth on Record will bring

the fun and the music with a locally grown music performance by the Sun

Power Program.


Mariposa represents the future of Denver Housing Authority projects focused

on engaging, enlisting, and energizing around culture, community, and

cuisine to build community and economic development. The panel will

consider the engagement process, built environment, and the activation it

takes to keep a community in place, while removing blighted conditions in

an urban setting and a hot market.

  • Shaina Burkett, Denver Housing Authority
  • Jami Duffy, Youth on Record
  • Brandy LeMae, Workshop8
  • David Griggs, Art Soup
  • Moderated by Katherine Correll, Downtown Colorado, Inc. and Theresa Wynn, Congress of the New Urbanism - CO Chapter


Tour the community with project leaders to dive deeper into the integration

of ideas and the built environment.
