In 2014, the Denver Office of Economic Development gave Re:Vision a $1.3M grant to acquire a 1.7 acre blighted property along Morrison Road. For over two decades the property accumulated acres of run down cars, semi-trailers, rotting antiques and furniture and dilapidated buildings. 

vision for the Westwoood-hub

We are building a hub for community wealth building called the WestwoodHUB. The Westwood Food Co-op will be the anchor tenant, providing convenient access to healthy food. The WestwoodHUB will also feature a 1-acre urban farm, a full-production greenhouse, a center for fitness and physical activity, and a civic plaza for community cultural events, music, and artisan markets.
