Rocky Mountain PBS unveiled an ambitious $30 million capital campaign Thursday to fund a new headquarters in Denver.

At the announcement, station CEO Doug Price said the project is in “the aspirational phase,” reports the Denver Post.

Plans include a complex of offices, studios, a theater, a “Discovery and Exploration Center” or digital learning lab for kids, an educational campus for the University of Colorado media department and possible residential units. “The mixed-used project, with Rocky Mountain PBS as its anchor, is expected to spark activity in a neighborhood the Downtown Denver Partnership has identified as its next target for urban revival,” according to the newspaper.

Grants from the city and foundations are being secured.

Price said the station has so far raised about a quarter of its goal. RMPBS hopes to secure enough funding by next year to break ground.
