November 2008 - SITE WORK UNDERWAY!
Denver Zoo is finalizing its plans for Toyota Elephant Passage, a landmark exhibit which will occupy 10 acres on the southern edge of the zoo. For this highly anticipated project to begin in 2009, the zoo is performing several preparatory measures. Because these are happening primarily in behind-the-scenes service areas, you may not notice the activity taking place.
The Zoo must relocate or rebuild many of the service facilities currently housed at the future site of Toyota Elephant Passage. These include facilities for concession deliveries, waste management, general storage, grounds equipment, and hay storage. All of these operations will move from their current location on the south side of the Zoo to a new location bordering the northwest zoo boundary. Construction is scheduled to be completed on these buildings by late spring 2009. The Zoo then will undergo a thorough “house-cleaning,” moving existing operations to their new homes, and relocating all materials to new locations. This is an exciting step in preparing for Toyota Elephant Passage construction.
