I have had a chance to get out the last couple of weekends and snap some photos of Denver. The last few panes of glass are being installed on 1144 Fifteenth Street in Downtown Denver. It has been wonderful watching 1144 Fifteenth rise downtown. Thank you for stopping by.
I have had a chance to sneak out and take some Denver skyline photos the last couple of weeks and figured I would share some of them here.
To begin here are a couple of photos looking towards the Country Club Towers. This set of photos was captured from 9th Avenue and Lincoln Street.
The below photo looks towards the northeast with a nice view of Denver's Capitol Hill neighborhood.
And of course here is one looking toward Downtown Denver where 1144 Fifteenth Street can been viewed making an impact on the Denver Skyline.
Here is a set of photos captured from Diamond Hill, near the intersection of Speer and I-25. This is a great vantage point to admire 1144 Fifteenth Street and The Confluence projects.
Next are a few photos I captured near the intersection of Federal and 6th Avenue.
To finish up, here are some photos I captured near the intersection of 38th and Blake in Denver's RiNo neighborhood.
With some recent free time I have captured some photos in and around Downtown Denver on two separate urban hikes. I really enjoyed getting out and photographing Downtown Denver area since I did not have much free time to do so during the summer and fall.
To begin, here is a series of photos captured from the Auraria Campus. The crane for 1144 Fifteenth Street is visible. When Looking closely, you can see a concrete boom just above the roofline of 1401 Lawrence that is in place to pour concrete for the elevator shaft of 1144 Fifteenth Street. It won't be long before 1144 Fifteenth Street makes a major impact on the Denver skyline.
Here is one looking towards the north where we can see The Confluence, a 34-story luxury apartment building that is under construction.
Here are a few pictures a little closure to 1144 Fifteenth Street:
The glass installation is moving along at 1144 Fifteenth Street.
Here are some black and white photos of Downtown Denver I captured while walking around:
And a few Downtown Denver photographs in color:
Denver Union Station all set for the holidays with Christmas lights.
Bridge over Cherry Creek.
Here are a few photographs I snagged around the Denver Art Museum.
The ART Hotel has been open for over a year now and I see it as a nice addition to this part of Broadway.
An eclectic mix of architectural styles in a relatively small area of Denver.
Here is one of the Clyfford Still Museum:
I hope you all enjoyed taking a look at some of my recent photos of Denver.
The Denver Skyline is my favorite subject to photograph. The Wednesday before turkey day I snapped a couple photos of the Denver Skyline looking towards the Rocky Mountains. To the right of the Four Seasons, you can see the crane of 1155 Fifteenth Street. Based on this, the top portion of 1144 Fifteenth Street will be visible from this vantage point.
The Denver Skyline sure does look impressive looking towards to mountains.
I going to get a print of the black and white one and hang it on my wall along with my other favorite photos of Denver.
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving,
This past Saturday night a hockey game was held at Coors Field between the University of Denver Pioneers and the Colorado College Tigers. The warm weather in Denver the last few days may not invoke thoughts of outdoor hockey, but it was still a great atmosphere with 35,000 fans in attendance at Coors Field.
The hockey rink on top of the baseball field will remain through next weekend as the Colorado Avalanche will play their arch rival the Detroit Red Wings this upcoming Saturday. A Friday night game between Avalanche and Red Wings alumni players will take place, which should be interesting considering many of the players in the alumni game exchanged punches with one another during their playing days. Colorado Rockies' pitchers and catchers reported to spring training in Arizona this past week, but for the time being, the sounds of slap shots will echo throughout the stands at Coors Field as we wait for the crack of the bat to return in April.
It was a unique site to see an ice rink sitting on top of a baseball diamond. The University of Denver out skated Colorado College to a 4-1 victory.
Since Denver Urban Review covers construction news I had to find a way to sneak in a construction photo. Below is a photo looking west from Coors Field. From left to right we see the construction cranes of the Dairy Block, Kimpton Hotel, Pivot Denver, and Union Tower West.
Coors Field located in Denver's LoDo neighborhood opened in 1995 and the view from the the below vantage point has changed the last 21 years. Notable additions to the Denver Skyline in Coors Field's lifetime include 1800 Larimer and The Four Seasons. Once 1144 Fifteenth is completed it will obstruct The Four Seasons from this vantage point except for the very top the spire.
Here are a few more photos of Coors Field from Saturday night's hockey game:
