The Entertainment District in Lone Tree, Colorado is a center occupied by restaurants, a movie theater, bowling alley, and indoor skydiving facility. Multiple vacancies and an auto-oriented design prevent this space from reaching its full potential and becoming an entertainment destination. Through the use of infill development and addition of new uses, including residential and mixed-use buildings, this site can become the thriving and exciting heart of Lone Tree.
