Denver Post Article
Caught this one this morning with my first coffee. Pretty interesting, I have heard of teardowns happening in the East, but have only seen isolated instances in Denver. Now I guess it is getting pretty prevalent.
The article raises some good points about neighborhood revitalization and attracting people to urban areas (some cool Denver areas to boot!), but the cost of some is greater size of the homes, a change in the neighborhood character, and a potential polarization between new and existing demographics.
This will be one to watch for me, as Denver is beginning a retool of their Zoning codes: hopefully with a nod in the direction of regulating teardowns.
What say the Throbbing Brain?
