Mile High Greyhound Park enters next phase of demolition

COMMERCE CITY, COLO. – Demolition of the former Mile High Greyhound Park moves into the final stages as work begins on the grandstands this week. The north east section of the grand stands acts as the starting point for the final tear down of the park, opened in 1949.

 

Over the next four months, the demolition team will bring the building down in sections and use the rubble to build ramps for access to the next section. The team will start on the east side and work west, bringing the roof down in phases. The demolition is scheduled for the next two months, and another two months to clean up the debris and make the site ready for a developer.

  

“The redevelopment of the former Mile High Greyhound Park has a lot of behind-the-scenes work that will ultimately lead to a grand reveal of a site that’s welcomed by the community,” said City Manager Brian McBroom. “Not only is the city overseeing the demolition, we’re also busy presenting this property to interested developers, researching the feasibility of the community-generated ideas, and preparing the site for mixed-use development.

 

To date, the paddock, maintenance and glycol buildings have been removed, along with the score board, track and subsurface utilities.
