7‐Eleven, Inc. November 2, 2012 Olga Mikhailova, AICP Project Manager Development Services ‐City and County of Denver 201 W. Colfax Ave. RE: ZPIN ‐ Written Narrative 7‐Eleven Store #35989 1295 Colorado Boulevard, Denver, CO Dear Ms. Mikhailova, The purpose of this letter is to provide a narrative describing the proposed 7‐Eleven development on the southwest corner of 13th Avenue and Colorado Boulevard in the City of Denver, CO. This letter also describes design strategies to ensure the project will have minimal impact on surrounding residential properties. Existing Conditions: The approximate 11,890 SF site contains a 2,674 SF office building, which has been used as an OBGYN clinic. The current site offers fourteen (14) parking spaces. Nine (9) of these parking spaces are on the south side of the property and face the Sun Crest Condominiums. No landscape buffer is provided along the south property line. Street access to the property is provided from a curb cut along Colorado Boulevard along the east side of the property. Additional access to 13th Avenue is provided via the alley to the west of the property. Proposed Improvements and Uses The majority of the exiting building (2,502 SF) shall remain with 172 SF removed from the south‐
east corner of the building. The proposed improvements include remodeling the interior and exterior of the existing building and improving the site with access, paved parking, circulation, lighting and landscaping. The intended use is for the 24 hour operation of a 7‐Eleven convenience store including retail sales of, tobacco, lottery, ATM, convenience items, pre‐packaged foods, hot foods, fresh foods, beverages and 3.2% beer for off‐site consumption. Design and Operational Strategies 7‐Eleven is a best in class operator of convenience stores with innovative programs, industry leading training and crime prevention programs, and an environmentally friendly design that includes state of the art lighting. Most importantly, each 7‐Eleven store is designed to serve the community as an integral part of the neighborhood. 7-Eleven Store #35989 1295 Colorado Boulevard, Denver, CO

The proposed use and project design will be harmonious with the neighboring community and existing commercial development.  The site is designed to provide safe pedestrian and vehicle circulation. An eight (8) foot sidewalk will be located along the south side of the building providing safe pedestrian access to the building entry. This walk extends from Colorado Boulevard to the alley.  The parking lot will be redone to remove all of the parking spaces along the south property line. All parking spaces will face the building, so no lights will shine unto the south property.  A 5‐foot landscape buffer will be added along the south property boundary. A six (6) foot wood privacy fence will be located in the landscape strip to provide a solid visual buffer between the project and Sun Crest Condominiums. In addition to the privacy fence, the 5‐foot landscape buffer will also include a dense planting of trees and tall evergreen shrubs to provide additional buffer between the properties.  The project meets strict City of Denver exterior lighting requirements that promote safe vehicular and pedestrian access to and within the project, while minimizing impacts on adjacent properties. Building signs and light fixtures will be designed and located to vastly decrease impacts of light spillover and glare to adjoining properties.  Parking across the alley on the adjacent residential property will not be allowed. Project Meets Limitations Noted in Section 11.4.3 (Nonresidential Uses in Existing Business Structures in Residential Zones) The proposed nonresidential use under this Section 11.4.3’s allowance complies with the following limitations: 
