Back in August, Ryan posted a construction update on the new Denver Police Department’s Crime Lab building in the Civic Center district. DPD’s new crime laboratory is being funded by the 2007 Better Denver Bond Program, heading towards its final year in 2012. For details on the Crime Lab project along W. 14th Avenue between Cherokee and Delaware, check out this post from DenverUrbanism and the project’s webpage at

Here are two photos of the project from this weekend. The photo on the left shows the Cherokee corner, and on the right the Delaware corner:


Along with the Denver Justice Center’s three buildings nearby, the Denver Crime Lab will continue the development of an urban street wall and better pedestrian environment on this stretch of W. 14th Avenue where mostly parking lots once dominated.
