Area Door Stickers: “Protect Larimer Square?”

“Protect Larimer Square” is a campaign launched by Urban Villages, the Developer that proposed adding two towers to Larimer Square in 2018, which landed Larimer Square on the National Trust’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places list last year. 

 

Urban Villages has since shelved that plan, but also has also discussed ideas for buildings behind Larimer Square in the Lower Downtown Historic District. LoDo, like Larimer Square, was very intentionally protected with a human-scale height limit that keeps the historic buildings out of the bulls-eye and ensures that the district retains its context, even as downtown rises around it.

Seeking to amend the historic district protections or the height standards would have impacts beyond a single site or building, and could impact all of LoDo as well as the city’s other carefully protected districts.
