The River Mile master plan is a long-term vision for 15 million sq ft development that sees Elitch Gardens, an aging amusement park on the South Platte River, as a mixed-use community. This concept was a response to the population crunch of Denver's downtown infrastructure. A variety of housing options will converge people. Two light-rail stations and a bus loop will alleviate the tension on public transport, while connecting to the river through communal gathering and amenity spaces. The plan has been approved but construction is still several years out; the development would be built in phases over several years.

The River Mile is an opportunity to reclaim the [South Platte] river for the residents
