Exactly right. The golf course is on the landfill but I do believe Cinderella City was built on an old river bed which gave it the structural issues.

HI Brett - You're right on the money. We're working on another article for the future that covers exactly that topic. Thanks for bringing it up!

Interesting that the originally proposed site was Hampden and University, butting up to Cherry Hills. No wonder it was fought by residents and voted down by the city.

Brian-Was the article,in the Photo Gallery, correct on Cinderella City being proposed for Hampden and University?

It's my understanding (thanks to one of our readers who e-mailed me) that was the original site. Parsing out the context of those early articles was a bit of a challenge!

Hi Tami - That site is actually where the KLZ towers were. (We'll be correcting that.) Thanks for the great comment!

I remember visiting Cinderella City in the 1980's and ending up in Cinder Alley and wondering what that was all about. Someone creative (?!) named the sectors and by the time we visited it was hard to conjure up the reason. Very interesting.

Hi Sara - I got the impression that there was a whole lot of story about the name Cinderella City, and the associated sub malls, that didn't make the papers. Throughout my research I saw it alternately referred to as "Cinderella City" or "Englewood Shopping Center". It's my understanding that Cinderella City was supposed to be just a placeholder - but it clearly didn't remain that way! 

Thanks for commenting and for reading!

Thanks for posting this. It was a pretty awesome place in the 70's and it holds some great memories for me i.e., buying my wedding ring at Zales. Sorry to see it long gone.
