Just two decades ago, the South Sheridan Commercial Corridor was a robust commercial center. Residents could catch a movie at the twin cinema, take their children for an afternoon at the skating rink or shop and dine at one of several retail establishments.
Even with Denver’s booming economy, much of the 64-acre site off of South Sheridan Boulevard is a ghost town. The cinema, skating rink and nearly all of the retail has fled. The Target, once a retail anchor for the site, left for greener pastures in developing Belmar in Lakewood in 2011.
