Denver’s LoDo Historic District

 

LoDo Denver

Boundaries:  Larimer Street, Speer Boulevard, Wynkoop Street and 20th Street

Population:  2,180

Overview: Lower Downtown–or LoDo, as it is commonly referred to–is located in the area where Denver was founded in 1858 by General William Larimer. Redolent with history, this neighborhood of three and four story red brick buildings was built on the site of Denver’s first Gold Rush settlement. I have been working and playing in LoDo since 1992 when the only bars were The Cruise Room, The Wazee Supper Club and Billabongs. Coors Field was just a Field of Dreams, Now the Colorado Rockies are the 2007 National League Champions. What a transformation and what a Rocktober in Denver. Today, LoDo is a vibrant 25-block urban neighborhood and tourist destination.

Lower Downtown was a bustling commercial area during Denver’s early years. However, much of Denver’s industrial economy shifted away from Lower Downtown after World War II, and almost one-fifth of the buildings in the area were demolished in the 1960s and 1970s. In order to preserve Denver’s historic legacy, Denver City Council created the Lower Downtown Historic District in 1988. The historic district designation introduced zoning ordinances that limited building heights, preserved dozens of buildings from the wrecking ball, and instituted strict guidelines for building rehabilitation and new construction.

Today, LoDo is a  neighborhood with lots of entertainment options. Art galleries, dozens of restaurants, brewpubs, jazz clubs, and specialty retail stores line the ground floors of historic buildings. LoDo Loft residents enjoy proximity to outdoor parks, including the Cherry Creek bike path, the 16th Street Mall, The Pepsi Center, and the recently completed 30-acre Commons Park in the Central Platte Valley. Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, anchors the neighborhood at 20th and Blake Street. Wynkoop Street is home to historic Denver Union Station, the Tattered Cover bookstore, and the Wynkoop Brewing Co., Denver’s first brewpub (and the country’s largest) that opened in 1988.

Most recently I lived in West End Lofts (In the Bridge Loft over the Alley) and walked my Labradoodle around the street’s of LoDo 4 times a day. So you could say that I do Know this Neighborhood every street and every alley.

Blog Design and Marketing

Seems everybody’s got a Blog these days, what does a Blog mean to businesses? How can it actually bring in more business? How can it be used to promote you brand?

What is a Blog?
A Blog is simply a web log with various functions. This has made Blogs a favorite tool to post news and events for companies, publications, associations, the Media, etc. But a Blog also serves as a free PR mechanism to announce virtually anything not only to your customers, but to the world, including leading media sources. Blogs are monitored, tracked and even promoted by large search engines such as Google, and other specific Blog engines. They can be searched by subject matter, industry, topic … just about any viable criteria.

The Blog “Network”
Blogs also act as an excellent networking tool, letting prospects, vendors, customers, media, etc. read, link to, and even make comments on your Blog. These comments can be monitored, or even disallowed at your preference. Blogs also feature linking areas for relevant topics, as well as to products and services your business may offer. Also, the more relevant links to your Blog, and also your site, the more you improve your websites’ “value” to most search engines. It is the linking and interlinking of Blogs that serve as a critically important tool for web and search engine marketing. I offer a Blog with a Custom Header to Match Your Brand
