Central Business District, Uptown, UpDo? What is the name of the Denver Core?

Denver, have you forgotten Uptown?

Efforts to rename and reshape the city’s central business district were officially launched at the end of 2019.Downtown Denver Partnership Released a plan Focusing on bringing more public events and private investment to the area, the area has been overshadowed by fashionable downtown enclaves such as Xiacheng District and Beihe Art District for the past three decades or so.

The Central Business District is bounded by 14th, Champa, 20th, and Sherman Streets and is home to some of the tallest buildings on the Denver skyline. It has nearly 20 million square feet of office space, a large number of hotel rooms, and the Colorado Convention Center.

COVID-19 emerged shortly after the public unveiling, which emptied office buildings and compressed the business of the convention center. During the protest against the murder of George Floyd, the area also suffered extensive property damage last spring.

“What happened during the pandemic is certainly challenging, but they don’t define the downtown area,” said Tami Door, president and CEO of the partnership.

Dole said this progress is reflected in several aspects at the street level. Timing is the key. The long-planned redevelopment of the 16th Street Mall will begin next year. This may bring a whole new set of complications to life in the city center and create more reasons for people to visit the area as a necessary lifeline.

New public art, including murals by Denver artist Thomas “Detour” Evans in the outer space mentioned above, has sprung up like mushrooms. Partnership officials said that efforts to plant more trees in the area continue.

The introduction of new retailers is another important aspect of the revitalization effort.

Bob Pertierra, who took over as Senior Vice President of Economic Development for Partnerships in June of this year, said he is developing a plan to connect voluntary landlords with Denver, who may be interested in taking over space in high-traffic areas. Or regional brands. The partnership will seek help from the city in this regard.
