Clayton Lane

Since the 1950s, the intersection of First Avenue and University Boulevard has been Denver’s premier shopping location. Between December 2001 and March 2005, the Nichols Partnership Inc., redeveloped 9.5 acres (3.85 ha) at the northeastern quadrant of the intersection, which had held freestanding Sears and Whole Foods stores and a surface parking lot, as Clayton Lane, a mixed-use project that combines 710,000 square feet (65,959 m2) of hotel, retail, office, and residential uses anchored by a new private street.
