Three quarters of this block is doing great, particularly with three of Downtown Denver's most beautiful historic buildings: the Masonic Building, the Kittredge Building, and the Paramount Theater.  But in December 1995, the old Kenmark Hotel, a
5-story building that, admittedly, was in very poor condition, was demolished.  Unfortunately, no building has taken its place since, and with surface parking not a use by right in the core area of Downtown, the site isn't used as a parking lot either.  It's a weedy, gravel lot, in the heart of the Financial District, the Wall Street of the Rockies.  More than a decade has passed and it remains a gaping hole in the otherwise exceptional urban canyon that is 17th Street.
