MONACO + EVANS
The future home of a residential community in Southeast Denver being developed by Forum Real Estate Group.
We are excited to be redeveloping this former Kmart site at Monaco and Evans in Denver. As part of this community, we look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas as we work with Councilwoman Black, city officials and local planners to design the site.
A virtual community meeting was held on May 6, 2020 to discuss the redevelopment. Thank you to all who attended, and to all who provided feedback that will help us steer the project in a positive way.

Q: What are Forum’s plans for the former K-Mart site?
A: We are very excited to be part of such a vibrant, growing community. Currently, our company is working with Councilwoman Black, City officials, and local planners to explore ways we can benefit the surrounding community and offer something new and exciting to area residents. We are still working through several options, with multifamily residential being among them.
Q: Why did you purchase this site? How did you learn of this deal?
A: We saw this 13 acre site as a prime opportunity for redevelopment and were excited to have an opportunity to acquire the land. As a Denver-based company, we are familiar with the Southeast Denver submarket and Goldsmith area and have had our eye on this site, given its proximity to DU, the Denver Tech Center and Cherry Creek.
Q: When will we know more about Forum’s plans for the site?
A: We are in the land entitlement process now. During this time, we will be exploring redevelopment scenarios with Councilwoman Black, City officials, and local planners. Part of that process will involve community outreach and meetings where we will hear from area residents their hopes and desires for the area, as we work to finalize our plans.
Forum Real Estate Group aims to create unique properties and experiences that deliver something exciting and valuable to the communities we serve. We’ve already received some suggestions from area residents and will be formulating other ways the community can share their ideas.
Q: What’s going to happen to the site in the meantime?
A: As part of our commitment to the community, we are currently exploring ways to activate the space now that will not only serve as a way for us to connect and interact with area residents. Look for more news on that as we finalize some of those ideas.
Q: Who is Forum Real Estate Group and what other projects have you done in the Denver area?
