Mayor Hancock Calls for Nominations for 2019 Mayor’s Design Awards

DENVER — Mayor Michael B. Hancock and Denver’s Community Planning and Development Department are seeking nominations for the 2019 Mayor’s Design Awards.

Since 2005, the Mayor’s Design Awards have honored projects throughout the city for excellence in architecture, exterior design and place-making. The awards are presented to Denver homeowners, business owners, nonprofits, and artists for their creative contributions to the public realm through innovative design. Many different types of projects are eligible. Previous award winners range from restaurants and galleries to private single-family homes to plazas and other shared public spaces. What each of the projects have in common is the imaginative and innovative way they enhance public spaces and create a sense of community.

Nominations are due Friday, Sept. 6, 2019. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in late fall. To nominate a project, learn more about the Mayor’s Design Awards and see past winners, visit
