Real Estate Term of the Day: In-Fill Development
IN-FILL DEVELOPMENT – improvements on land adjacent to and between existing development. A way to accomodate increased population in an area without spreading the boundaries of the development (Barron’s Dictionary of Real Estate Terms)
In case you missed it, Denver is one of the hottest places to live in the US. Just take a look at how Denver ranks compared to other cities and you will see that Denver ranks well in several categories including: real estate, business and employment, health and lifestyle, transportation and travel and professional sports. With the population growth that Denver is experiencing, there is much need for more in-fill development in Denver. Just drive around town and you will see the in-fill and revitalization that almost all of the Denver neighborhoods are experiencing.
DenverInfill is a great resource that tracks all of the infill projects in Denver.
According to DenverInfill’s website, here is a little more info about the map:
About the Project Map
The DenverInfill Project Map shows the location, type, and status of the various infill developments reported on the DenverInfill Blog. Here are a few things you should know about the DenverInfill Project Map:
- A project won’t appear on the map unless there has been at least one post about the project on the blog.
- The time frame for the DenverInfill Project Map is 2010–2019, which makes it a great complement to the original DenverInfill website, which tracked projects from 2000–2009. Any project that was completed before January 2010 will not be on the map. Any project that was under construction, completed, or proposed after January 2010 will be on the map.
- The projects have been grouped into four type categories: Residential (yellow), Office (orange), Hotel (red) and Civic/Cultural (blue). Show or hide a category using the check box next to the category label in the legend.
- Each project’s status is represented by its marker shape: Proposed (circle), Under Construction (square) and Completed (star).
- When you click on a marker on the map, a pop-up box will appear with a link that retrieves all of the posts about that project on the blog. The pop-up box also includes a small rendering of the project.
- When you click on a project name in the legend, a pop-up box highlighting the project’s location will appear on the map.
- Use the +/- buttons in the lower right corner of the map to zoom in and out in altitude.
- Use the map icon in the lower left corner under the legend to toggle between a base map and an aerial photo background.
- Use the little arrow at the bottom of the legend to hide or show the legend.
The DenverInfill Project Map will be updated on a regular basis, but if you spot a project that has changed status or any map corrections in general, feel free to let us know. Just post a comment with the updated information to any blog post about the project, and we’ll update the map (your comment won’t be made public). Enjoy!
