History Colorado Center Final Update

Since I have started to contribute to DenverInfill about 15 months ago, there were many projects in the works and many updates from then till now. Some of those projects have been completed now and I feel they need that one final update showing the completed product. Today I want to share with you the final update on the History Colorado Center. Below you can follow the legacy from the original announcement on this site.

Denver Museum Update

Denver Museum Update #2

Inside the Infill Part 1

Inside the Infill Part 2

And today here are some shots of the completed History Colorado Center. One of the things I noticed about this particular project is the landscaping. They did a very good job integrating the museum at the street level and making it very pleasing to the eye. You can also see the large signs for events and exhibits that are posted for both automotive and foot traffic to see.


I never really noticed the broken up glass along 12th Avenue. It definatley adds a unique character and a great modern feel to this development. On the right is the street view from Broadway. It’s hard to tell in this picture but, in the full resolution shot you can see the pedestrians walking down Broadway were looking up at the museum. It is pretty impressive from the grand entrance.


I snapped two bonus pictures for you. I have recently discovered that parking garages are great ways to get up to see some great angles of these developments. Broadway at 12th Avenue sure looks different than it did a couple years ago. Can you spot the people on the top floor patio?


Throughout the next couple weeks we will be looking at some more projects that have completed as well as some that have just begun. Overall, Denver is building rapidly and as soon as one development finishes, at least one begins.

    Now if they could just do something with the horrible, unfinished concrete slab across Broadway…..Any update on what’s supposed to happen there?

      I believe the final phase of the project wrapping the Cultural Center Parking Garage–the side along Broadway–is being worked on. I think they want to do office and hotel on that side. It will probably depend on them finding an anchor office tenant, but you never know, we could hear something about that project one of these days.

    Thanks, Ken. Nice to know something is planned (and it almost sounds like one of these days could be fairly soon).

    I have a question for the masses since I can’t find the answer myself if that’s cool…So, why is it called the History Colorado Center instead of the Colorado History Center? So ridiculously awkward…
