The Golden Triangle is still undergoing many transformations, and is bustling with vibrant businesses. Denver’s new justice center opened in late 2010. The Colorado State Judiciary building and Colorado State History Museum opened in 2011. The Denver Art Museum’s new wing was completed in the fall of 2006, further developing the neighborhood’s art scene, which includes various art galleries and the Curious Theatre Company.
The Golden Triangle is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver, with many single 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 also placed a concrete 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.
