As demographics have shifted in the past 10 or 15 years, Denver has experienced an influx of people interested in living and working in the downtown core. With new infill buildings and open spaces, downtown Denver has been transformed into a series of lively “places for people” with mixed-use office, retail, and residential buildings, municipal and cultural venues, and art-filled public plazas. With century-old brick structures, classical architecture, modern high-rises, and contemporary “green” buildings, downtown Denver presents a collage of architectural styles and urban forms that contributes to this story of urban evolution and allows for future urbanism. The projects that have brought life to downtown are highlighted in the book.
