2015 Mayor's Design Awards
The Mayor’s Design Awards honor bold, creative projects that represent the best our city has to offer in exterior design, architecture and place-making. The awards are intended to encourage thoughtful, sustainable development and use of public spaces that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, enhance our community, and encourage engagement in it with a nod to the past and an eye on the future.

At a time when construction and development in Denver are booming, the sixteen winners selected this year pay homage to Denver’s cultural and architectural history, add to the city’s unique character and flavor, and propel the city and its story further into this new century. They include historic structures more than one hundred years old and brand-new developments certain to stand for one hundred more. They include community projects driven by neighborhood pride and multimillion-dollar investments reflective of Denver’s thriving economy. They range in size from 600 square feet to more than 300,000 square feet. Each brings something special to Denver’s unique visual fabric and speaks to our collective commitment to building a vibrant city.
