District Description

The City's goal for the Evans Station area is to create a robust, vibrant, transit-oriented development. The area has excellent connectivity to high frequency transit, major highways, and the recently reconstructed South Broadway corridor. Proximity to amenities and recent public infrastructure investments, such as the Evans and Santa Fe Drive interchange, have greatly improved access to businesses, the station and the neighborhood in general.

In the employment/industrial areas of the neighborhood, discrepancies between Blueprint Denver land uses and the existing zoning exist. This will change overtime beginning with the rezoning of a parcel along W. Evans to C-MU-10.This area is adjacent to an area projected by Blueprint Denver to be urban residential.

The City’s vision is to encourage reinvestment and redevelopment of industrial areas as “creative industries” while maintaining the residential character and having a full range of housing types and housing price points. Broadway will develop as a main street and a corridor connection from the station to Broadway will be enhanced with high intensity development and pedestrian improvements.

Evans Light Rail Station is a neighborhood walk-up station with a small park-and-ride located near the intersection of South Santa Fe Drive and Evans Avenue. Access to the station is on Delaware Street. Built in 2000 during the construction of RTD’s southwest light rail corridor, Evans Station is the first stop in Denver as the train heads north into the city from Englewood.
