DENVER-Mayor John Hickenlooper recently gave the first Mayor’s Design Awards to 15 business owners and developers in the city, whom Hickenlooper says made design excellence a priority. “Great cities are just as enriched by many small and beautiful design interventions as they are by large and bold civic gestures,” Hickenlooper says. “The business owners we recognize didn’t have to go the extra mile to invest time and money in their property. But because they did, we all can benefit from it. They are helping to create a culture of good design in our city and encouraging other business owners to follow suit.”

“The Mayor’s Design Awards recognizes and encourages well designed small projects throughout our neighborhoods,” adds Denver planning manager Peter J. Park. “Good design happens on its own when enlightened owners recognize the benefit and invest in quality design.”

Those recognized include: Marczyk’s Fine Foods; Potager; Side Street; Box City, an annual event encouraging children to build a city using their imaginations; and Clayton Lanes, developed by Randy Nichols, which includes the first J.W. Marriott hotel in Denver and the Janus world headquarter office. Additional awards went to: Forest Room 5 in the Highland neighborhood; Museo de las Americas on Santa Fe Drive; Tommy’s Thai on East Colfax Avenue; Broadway Central, an urban retail development at 6th Avenue and Broadway; Sushi Den; Oblio’s Pizzeria; Buzz Café; the Potted Garden; Aperture, an apartment building with antique cameras and photographs as a theme that was developed by Zvi Rudawsky and Grant Barnhill; and Bang!, a restaurant in the West Highland neighborhood.
