Commerce City

Armpit of Metro Denver?

Most people don't think much of Commerce City, Colorado. It was never a desirable bedroom community. It has lots of commercial and industrial development. But with the closing of Stapleton and the old Rocky Mountain Flats and the land it's annexed to the north east, it has a blank slate to work with in rebranding itself. The cornerstone of this is it's Prairie Gateway project. It will give Commerce City a downtown. The focal point of the project is a new stadium for the Colorado Rapids. More information on the Prairie Gateway development can be found at the city's website.

What do you think of the project? Will it change metro Denver resident's image of the city?
