The vision for Midtown is that it will be a vital district, with a mix of uses and activities that serve a broad spectrum of the community. It will have a distinct identity to distinguish it from other parts of the city, and will serve as a destination in its own right.
Boardwalk to Horsetooth
This area contains a broad mix of frontage styles including buildings set up to the street, car dealership with parking area parking lots etc. The best option here is to utilize the design elements of continuity with streetlights, flowerpots, plazas, and landscaping. Themed walls may also make sense in these locations.
Horsetooth to Swallow
Swallow to Drake
This area is defined by distinctive parallel frontage roads and many small footprint users. Each side of College in this area has an opportunity to capitalize on these frontage roads by highlighting the frontages as special locations. As mentioned above in the urban design theme elements, highlighting these roads through special treatment and through having storefronts engage with the frontage through creative urban design, this sub district offers a unique and exciting setting for making people places. Through special paving, storefront treatment, widened pedestrian ways, flowerpots and other ornate treatments, these areas will become unique and inviting as a place to go and hangout.
