Denver wants someone to buy this former Globeville church and redevelop it to benefit the community

Denver is looking for a nonprofit organization that wants to buy a city-owned former church in the Globeville neighborhood and turn it into something that will benefit the neighborhood.

The building is at 4400 Lincoln St., across the street from the Garden Place Academy elementary school. The city controls it and a parking lot across the alley at the corner of East 44th and Sherman streets, according to a new release Thursday from the city’s Office of Economic Development.

Denver is looking for an organization or group that can buy, redevelop and operate a “multi-purpose, community-oriented facility ” on the property. It is willing to “entertain other reasonable proposals” that will have a positive impact on the area, according to the release. The key is a project that blends with the Globeville neighborhood and meets the needs of people living there, the city says.

Thursday’s release did not list an asking price. City officials plan to post a more detailed request for qualifications for interested organizations on the website at 4 p.m. Feb. 20.

It’s not the first time Denver has looked for someone to take the church off its hands. Officials also sought proposals from interested buyers back in 2012, suggesting in a document issued then that the 8,000-square-foot “building could be reused as a neighborhood center, affordable housing, child care center, job training or other community use.” The city held a workshop seeking feedback from Globeville residents on what they wanted to see happen there in the summer of 2016.
