RAY MARK RINALDI, CONFLUENCE DENVER | The annual Mayor’s Design Awards emphasize the positive side of the city’s widespread gentrification.
There’s so much construction going on in Denver these days, it’s hard to sort out the good from the bad from the ugly. Well, maybe not the ugly; things are going up fast and we all have our own personal eyesores.
But today, we concentrate on the good, thanks to the annual Mayor’s Design Awards for 2017. The coveted awards have been going out since 2005, but they seem more important then ever this year given the current construction boom, which has increased competition among new projects.
