Project: Fox Park
Award: Future Projects – Urban, Bronze, 2022
Location: Denver, Colorado, USA
Architect: Tryba Architects
Client: Vita Fox Park Development Team
Fox Park is a 41-acre urban landscape providing a diversity of experiences that fully immerse the cityscape with nature. Interconnected parks and open space integrate culture, community and innovation in a formerly industrial area near Downtown Denver at the crossroads of two major interstate highways.
Terraced into an existing hillside, Fox Park subtly isolates parking and service areas underground to create a harmonious, vertically integrated public realm.
The addition of 14 acres of park and open space will serve to connect Fox Park's many residential, office, hotel and retail spaces, creating an inclusive and sustainable community connected to nature.
This vibrant mixed-use community will bring together next-generation workspaces, a boutique hotel, event venues, curated retail and urban agriculture. At its heart, an immense former newspaper printing facility will be converted into a World Trade Centre - a vibrant new cultural centre for community learning and education, arts and culture, innovation and fabrication, business and entrepreneurship.
