A New Metro Area Urban Village.

They are building another new Denver metro area urbanist center in the tradition of the former Villa Italia mall in Lakewood, Colorado and the former Cinderella City mall in Englewood, Colorado (before picture here), at the site of the former Southglen Mall. Which dead mall will be next?

Denver has had relatively dense suburban development, in contrast to many other urban areas, and its regional planning document (9.6 MB long) proposes to continue that, with a planned expansion from about 500 square miles of urbanized area to 770 over the next 25 years.
