“We are here to celebrate the projects that are getting it right. Whether they are big or small, buildings or art, homes or commercial buildings – these projects truly represent the Denver that we know and love,” Mayor Hancock said.
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 can range from community placemaking projects to adaptive reuse of historic structures to single-family residences to major mixed-use downtown buildings. Each brings something special to Denver’s unique visual fabric and speaks to our collective commitment to building healthy, sustainable communities.
The awards ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. tonight at the Chambers Grant Salon of the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, Denver Performing Arts Complex (1400 Curtis Street). The event is free and open to the public; a reception will follow. For more information on the event and the awards, visit DenverGov.org/MDA.
