Nine Mile Concept Plan
The Town selected Evergreen as the development partner for the Nine Mile corner. Evergreen was founded in 1974, and is a developer of shopping centers, single tenant commercial, multi-family, and single family projects and provides property management, asset management and consulting services. Principal Tyler Carlson of Evergreen's Denver office serves as project lead in the Nine Mile Public-private partnership.
According to Carlson, the approximately 45-acre site located on the southeast corner of 287 & Arapahoe is significant not only in its prominent location (directly across from the Road of Remembrance Gateway Memorial), but in the tone the development will set for the community in the future. "The shopping center formula is being repackaged to not only enhance the retail experience, but also create a sense of community frequently associated with traditional main streets and downtowns," Carlson said.
The design spirit of Nine Mile corner recalls the architectural form and architypes found in Historic Downtown Erie.
- Historic architectural details and design motifs will be executed in a contemporary manner that facilitates critical place-making for neighborhood gathering while balancing the operational needs of tenants.
- The buildings will contribute to the established character of the Town of Erie.
- Pedestrian scale, with both passive and active open spaces, will be the overall theme throughout the project, creating a comfortable, walk-able environment for the consumer, visitor and employee.
