A New Lincoln Street

Every once in a while I will walk against the grain on Lincoln Street on my way home from work. As I approached 14th Avenue I had to stop and stare at this amazing project in our Civic Center district. The Ralph Carr Judicial Center has a massive presence and changes the entire feel of the Lincoln Street / Broadway corridor. When you’re driving down the one way street towards the North, it’s hard to notice the boldness of this development but I encourage you, if you’re on foot, to walk against traffic on Lincoln Street and observe this project. From its Neoclassical architecture to some contemporary touches, what do you think of this overall development?

Not to mention, just down the street is the History Colorado Center which is another huge part of the new Lincoln / Broadway streetscape. Kudos to these two projects in making the gateway into downtown just that much better.

UPDATE: The hoist elevator has also come down on the office tower and they are starting to seal it up. This is a great step in the visual completion of this development.

    I think the building relates really well with all the other buildings around it. It looks good from every angle and from all sides! I think this building and the new History and Clyford Still Museums are Denvers best new buildings in years.

    Does anybody know anything about the AMstar project at Delgany and 15th?

      Actually, that’s one of my next posts. I’ve been exchanging emails with the developer and will have something good on this soon.

    Very well written article. I agree with you and I had sold off 75% of my equity unit trusts for the past 2 weeks.

    You’ve got to be kidding! The Carr Building is a cartoon of a civic structure, made more so by the refined elegance of the Colorado History Museum.

    Living just a few blocks from here it’s been really interesting and exciting feeling like downtown is moving closer to me, I hope it continues.
