Brookfield has stopped honoring Benjamin Stapleton by replacing Forest City’s brand with a new image and message.
We still need to hold the new developer accountable to the goals in Forest City’s contract with the city of Denver, legally obligating them to build 10 percent of for-sale units as affordable housing reasonably on pace with market rate homes. Promote the community as originally intended; an environmentally friendly, walk-able neighborhood in Denver, with a range of housing and job types, and an emphasis on inclusiveness.
Forest City is reevaluating their signage program in 2017.
