Larimer Square in the News and in the Archives



What is this Advisory Committee, who is running it, and how do I contact it? I'm appalled at this proposal which would ruin Denver's landmark historic block, add to the sterility and anonymity of the new development downtown, and make it like a Dallas clone. In the '50s and early '60s the city had plans to demolish all of lower downtown and put a freeway through it. How would that have added to the livability of downtown? Is anyone sorry they didn't manage to achieve their megalomanical plan? Larimer Square was a pioneering effort that showed historic preservation was a viable development option downtown. After having shown the way for so much of downtown's redevelopment, let's not now have it destroyed just to add more bland and overbearing new buildings.
