Rocky Mountain Seed Company

During the construction of 16M  off of 16th and Market (the old Cook Building which housed Office Depot) a quiet little building next door was also renovated that didn’t really get noticed; it has caught my eye every time I walk by and I wish our office was in their beautiful and elegant space.

A little history from Eron Johnson Antiques and the Denver Post, the Rocky Mountain Seed Co. Building was built in 1894 and in its more recent past the facade of the building had been covered with green sheet metal.

Union Station Grand Opening

The grand opening of the Union Station was today, May 9th, and I couldn’t wait to see the new space which is hidden from me as I bike down 15th by the tall buildings surrounding it.  It was wonderful to see so many people come out and celebrate an Denver’s newest neighborhood and the transformation of what old rail yards into a vibrant transit hub.
