Street Architecture

Several weeks ago I wrote about Denver's 14th Street: a "New Edge for the City." This was about the new developments adjacent to Denver's theater district and convention center. New condos, hotels, restaurants. Now the city is investing millions of dollars in street improvements with pedestrian resting spots, trees, and Times Square-type signage.  This three-minute animation produced by Parsons Brinkerhoff Project Visualization Group shows what the street will look like by the end of 2011.
