Approved by the Colorado Springs City Council on September 25, 2007. The Area contains 11 parcels with total parcel acreage of approximately 16.3 acres. The boundaries of the CityGate Urban Renewal Area generally include properties south of Cimarron Street, west of Sahwatch Street, north of Rio Grande Street, and east of the BNSF / UP railroad tracks. The vision for revitalization of the Area is creation of high quality commercial and mixed-use developments which integrate a range of non-residential uses with residential uses including above ground floor commercial (vertically integrated) where appropriate, as well as property improvements, supported by strategic public investment to infrastructure (including utilities) and parking within and adjacent to the Area boundaries. The CityGate development is positioned to serve as the gateway to the Southwest Urban Renewal Area located directly to the north, and the catalyst for change in this area of downtown. The combination of uses proposed, will further promote development and redevelopment of the entire Southwest Downtown Area as an urban neighborhood with residential, commercial, employment, lodging and public elements while physically connecting existing uses to the south with future uses to the north.
