Otten Johnson and
hosted a conversation at The Commons on Champa that covered some of Denver's most interesting projects under development: inclusive projects being built with all stakeholders in mind -- and with their input.
The projects discussed at the Nov. 17 event in the conversation ranged from a new home for the nonprofit
Mi Casa Resource Center
Catalyst Health-Tech Innovation
(HTI), a campus focused on advanced healthcare technologies. While each project represented different needs and end users, they all shared common themes: inclusion, being purpose-built and seeking input from their communities. Beyond Mi Casa and Catalyst, David Zucker, principal of
Zocalo Community Development
, and Doug Price, CEO of
Rocky Mountain PBS
, were both on hand to discuss RMPBS' new home in downtown Denver, and Mark Shaker of Flightline Ventures was on hand to discuss
The Stanley Marketplace
. Christine Marquez-Hudson, executive director of Mi Casa (and soon-to-be president and CEO of
The Denver Foundation
), moderated the panel and discussed the Mi Casa project, which will blend low-income housing and social services. Also on hand was Carl Koelbel of
Koelbel and Company
, which is developing Catalyst HTI.
