Over the past five years or so, despite the recent recession, Downtown Denver has seen strong construction activity and investment that only seems to be accelerating in 2013. Whether it’s the big Union Station transit project and its neighboring private-sector developments, the Better Denver Bond improvements, the state’s Ralph Carr Judicial Center and History Colorado Center buildings, or dozens of other public and private projects, Downtown has been growing and getting better every day. Look in just about any direction, and a tower crane or two will be in your view.
As you know, tracking and promoting all that investment in Downtown is at the heart of our mission here at DenverInfill and DenverUrbanism. It is also an important part of the mission of the Downtown Denver Partnership, which works tirelessly publicly and behind the scenes to improve the Downtown environment and promote public and private development in our urban core. Naturally then, I was excited to accept the Partnership’s offer to help them with their new Downtown Development Map. The map turned out great and it does an awesome job of graphically reflecting the tremendous investment that’s taken place in Downtown Denver during these past few years. Even our own DenverInfill man-about-town-with-camera, Ryan Dravitz, has one of his photos on the map. Nice job, Ryan!
Save the map as a PDF and share it with your friends or send them a link to the map’s page on the Partnership’s website. And of course, don’t forget to remind your friends to put DenverInfill, DenverUrbanism, and the Partnership’s new weekly online newsletter, Confluence Denver, on their reading list!
