Amy Cara Announced as Chair of New Development Council
The Downtown Denver Partnership is excited to announce the Chair of the newly-formed Development Council, Amy Cara, Managing Partner, East West Partners.
Amy is always looking for ways to connect people with the places they live and work. Amy oversees the team that recently completed the Denver Union Station transit hub redevelopment, The Coloradan and 16 Chestnut. She also oversaw for the revitalization of The Landmark, a distressed mixed-use community that needed new eyes and perspective. More than a collection of buildings, Denver’s Union Station Neighborhood, the Landmark development and Riverfront Park, where she started, represent something important to Amy – creating a sense of place.
Amy is deeply committed to responsible land development. In addition to her involvement with the Partnership, she co-chairs Mayor Hancock’s Economic Recovery and Relief Council Subcommittee for Construction and Development, is involved in the Urban Land Institute locally and nationally, is a member of the University of Colorado Real Estate Center’s International Advisory Board and a board member of Community Builders, an organization that helps smaller towns build capacity for conversations around growth and identity.
The Development Council works to reduce barriers to development, identify development opportunities, and increase the supply of new housing in Downtown Denver and surrounding center city neighborhoods. The council reviews policies and initiatives, evaluates supply and demand balance, and drives innovation and connections within the development community.
