Denver considers saving Coors Field’s scenic views

DENVER, Colorado – A property owner is contesting a proposal to restrict building construction that would block the views of the Rocky Mountains from Coors Field.

An attorney for Focus Property Group says her client owns 50,000 square feet that would be affected by the proposal and that the property value would diminish because buildings would be limited to being 70 feet high. Buildings in an area west of Coors Field can currently be as high as 140 feet.

A Denver City Council committee gave initial approval to the proposal Wednesday and will now be considered by the full council on July 20.

The Metropolitan Major League Baseball Stadium District, which owns the stadium, has said the impact of the ordinance would be minimal because there is not much property left to develop in the area.
