The Golden Triangle is still undergoing many transformations. The Denver Art Museum’s new wing was completed in fall of 2006, further developing the neighborhood’s art scene, which includes various art galleries and the Curious Theatre Company. The neighborhood is bustling with vibrant businesses.
The Golden Triangle is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver, with many single family Victorian homes and bungalows built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Between 1904 and 1919, Denver Mayor Robert Speer completed his ambitious plan for the Civic Center area, adding many civic institutions and a neoclassic park to the north of the neighborhood. He placed a leafy concrete urban canyon around Cherry Creek, creating Speer Boulevard, the neighborhood’s western and southern border. After World War II, the Golden Triangle became a business support area for the central business district. New condominium and loft developments came into the neighborhood, and many of the old supply stores and garages were transformed into restaurants, art galleries, and small offices.
