america 2050's article included maps showing the urban megaregion predicted in 2050. the megaregions are the largest networks of metropolitan areas, and there are at least ten identified in the US so far. the urban megaregions are classified by future growth and rapid population along with climate change, foreign trade, land use patterns and other characteristics. denver is part of the front range megaregion, which is the fastest growing in the US. this article includes a map of the urban megaregions connected by potential high-speed rail links. we are excited that denver is a part of this future development!
denver came out on top of the list for the 35 best cities in the u.s. for people 35 and younger to live in. the 35 cities were ranked by demographics, housing, jobs, food, entertainment, night out, getting around, and appeal. all of these reasons made denver take home the number four spot on the list! the food category received the 8th overall ranking and the entertainment received the 9th overall ranking. we at 063 are proud to call denver home!!!
Denver Infill has given us an update on our neighbor here on Platte Street. We are excited about our neighbors that should be up and ready by the beginning of 2015. Galvanize 2.0 will have space for offices, classrooms, meeting spaces and a downstairs restaurant. The 70,000 square foot building will bring much more great attraction to, what we think here at 063 to be, one of the hottest spots in Denver.
Retaining the history of Denver and its neighborhoods is important to us at 063 and we try to keep our projects contextual and respectful. The Lucy House, named after its original owner, Dr. Lucy, is a prime example of historical reinvention. This single family remodel is a beloved home in the Highlands. Dr. Lucy added on his practice to the front of his home, as it was centrally located in the neighborhood. Dr. Lucy specifically catered to the Italian, Irish and the Latino population, who made up the majority of the population in the Highlands in the early part of the 20th century. Another reason we wanted to retain the charm and historical details of this home was because Dr. Lucy was a very well respected and involved member of the Denver community, and a City Councilman. He was a leader in getting the Highlands where it is today, including paving the roads. The neighborhood wanted to keep the history of this home alive, so we chose to reinvent it, as opposed to redeveloping it. Stay tuned to see more updates and pictures of the Lucy House.
