Mayor Michael Hancock recently honored 17 projects for the contributions they've made to Denver's public realm at the 2016 Mayor's Design Awards recently held at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House.
"The theme that emerged from this year's field of winners is transformation," Hancock says. "The impact that these projects have made on their streets, their neighborhoods and the city will be felt for years to come. The owners and their project teams have shown a clear commitment to design with intention with results we can all take pride in."
Since 2005, the awards have been presented to Denver homeowners, business owners, nonprofits, artists and others for their creative contributions to the public realm through innovative design. Winners range from community placemaking projects and adaptive reuse of historic structures to single-family residents and major mixed-use downtown buildings. Each brings something special to Denver's visual fabric and speaks to the city's collective commitment to building healthy, sustainable communities.
The 2016 Mayor's Design Award winners are:
