-- In May of 2008, gang members set fire to the Holly Shopping Center in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood in a retaliatory attack against a rival gang. The arson attack completely demolished the shopping center and left only six pillars that now represent peace in the neighborhood through a redevelopment project to build a park, a community center and a new Boys & Girls Clubs facility.
Snell & Wilmer represented the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver in the development of its Holly Square facility, which will be named the Jack A. Vickers Boys & Girls Club and will be housed in the Nancy P. Anschutz Community Center. The Boys & Girls Clubs’ facility is a part of the larger Holly Area Redevelopment Project. Snell & Wilmer represented the Boys & Girls Clubs in the negotiation of its 99-year lease of the site from an Urban Land Conservancy affiliate, in due diligence and project administration, and in the preparation and negotiation of all construction and development documents. The Boys & Girls Clubs completed due diligence activities in early November and construction began shortly thereafter. Construction is expected to take 9 to 11 months. Mulligan and Frost were assisted by firm associates Michael Strand, Brian Furgason, Jonathan Allen, Jacob Whitted, Eugene Kim and Virginia Olmstead.About Snell & Wilmer L.L.P.
