studioINSITE was commissioned to develop a design vision for 14th Street redevelopment in Downtown Denver – a process which began with the 14th Street Initiative. Hired to establish a set of design guidelines to direct the future of 14th Street redevelopment, the project spans 12 linear city blocks between Market Street and Colfax Avenue in downtown Denver. In consideration of adjacent programming, including numerous hotels, the Colorado Convention Center, The Denver Performing Arts Complex, restaurants and a variety other resources for tourism and arts in Denver, the goal was to establish 14th street as a “cultural spine”, adding new streetscape amenities, accommodating existing light-rail and future bicycle traffic, and contributing to the overall improvement of downtown Denver’s physical environment. As a follow-up to the Initiative, studioINSITE  led a Feasibility Study to compare initiative ideas with actual survey information. The resulting information was used to determine the feasibility of the larger conceptual plan to expand sidewalks and curbs on the north side.
