The former site of the University of Colorado hospital along Colorado Boulevard is getting a facelift in the form of a massive mixed-use development, including a movie theater and residential and retail components.A 10-screen movie theater is moving into the development at 9th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, taking over the former site for a University of Colorado hospital. When the new AMC theater will open has yet to be announced. 9th Avenue Land LCC, a combination of Continuum Partners and CIM Group, is heading up the project, according to BusinessDen. Once complete, the AMC theater will span a total of 44,000 square feet of the 26-acre property. The former site of the hospital was demolished in March of 2015, with only a parking garage, former nurse's dormitory, and a research bridge left standing.

In addition, a nine-story apartment building is set to open within the month and a second, 319-unit residential property is currently under construction.
