Density Data

Friends of Crestmoor Park volunteer and real estate expert John DeRungs has done a density study of properties throughout the Crestmoor and Lowry areas.

The newest version of the Metropolitan Homes plan calls for at least 75 units including townhomes and a 50-unit apartment complex on this  2.3 acre site immediately adjacent to Crestmoor Park. That density of nearly 33 units to the acre is far out of line with the prevailing density in the Crestmoor neighborhoods, which is about 2.6 units to the acre. Even at Buckley Annex, where the Lowry Redevelopment Authority is proposing high density development, the density would be 11 units to the acre.

  1. Greetings,
    This project is yet another testament to the money spent by developers that have no ongoing responsibility to the community once they make their profits.

    Sadly we have a concrete canyon evolving in Cherry Creek due to some highly questionable ‘deals’. Additionally the new Lowry blight has not made its inevitable impact on traffic, safety, crime and parking.

    And lest we forget, Crestmoor Park which is not intended to be a State Park, but rather a neighborhood park.

    The development plans at 195 S. Monaco need to be stopped.

    Thanks for the help and information. The density tables and map are invaluable. Thanks!!!!

  2. This city council has chosen to tear down schools to make way for parking lots, to toss aside the voice of the community expressed in writing and in person, to change the character of neighborhoods without consideration for the homeowners. Now they face the choice of tearing down a church to make way for a tower of babble.

    I know these are good people. And I know they believe in the future of Denver as a world class city. Change is a difficult thing. I wish there was some way we could come to agreement because many of us already see the Crestmoor neighborhood as a world class neighborhood as it is.
