A LITTLE LOWER DOWNTOWN DENVER HISTORY (LoDo)

The 23 plus square block area of the original Denver is now called Lower Downtown Denver (LoDo). In 1858, General William Larimer built his cabin and named his small settlement Denver City, after the governor of the Kansas Territory. Within 20 years, his settlement had grown in population (in 1860, the population was 4,749; in 1870, the population was 4759; and in 1880, the population grew to 35,629). In 1870, after the determined local citizenry had raised enough cash to finance the building of a spur of the Transcontinental Railroad from Denver to Cheyenne, Denver started in a boom cycle that would continue up to the Silver Crash in 1893.

The Lower Downtown Historic District was formed by an act of City Council in March 1988, with the intention of encouraging the preservation and vitality of an area that is significant because of its architectural, historical, and economic value. The historic status granted protection to the community's historic resources and to 127 contributing historic structures that remained (approximately 20% of Lower Downtown's buildings were demolished in the 1960's and 70's)by enactment of a zoning ordinance that includes building height limitations and encourages mixed-use development as well as providing strict design guidelines for rehabilitation and new construction.  The B-7 zoned historic district is roughly bordered by Speer Boulevard, 20th Street, Wewatta Street, and the alley between Market and Larimer Streets.


The LoDo District, Inc. was formed in 1989 when a loosely organized group of Lower Downtown property owners joined with a marketing entity named the District Collaborative to form what is now known as the LoDo District. This joint effort produced a diverse group of men and women whose community and philanthropic interests were focused on the needs of the neighborhood.
