Six downtown Denver projects from 2017 that “had the most significant economic impact on the center city” were honored Tuesday night.

The Downtown Denver Partnership honored projects “that contribute to an economically healthy, growing and vital center city” and were judged by “a jury of key business leaders convened by the Downtown Denver Partnership.”

“Tonight’s 57th annual Downtown Denver Awards Dinner is about the brave, bold, risk -takers who have shaped our city,” said Tami Door, president and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership, at an event gala Tuesday night, in a statement.

The honorees included:

• Ashley Union Station, a mixed-income property in the Union Station development;

• Shoemaker Plaza at Confluence Park, completed in 2017, which provides recreation and public space access;

• The Le Meridien / AC Hotel, which created more than 300 jobs in the central business district;

• The Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Initiative at Metropolitan State University of Denver, a 117,000-square-foot learning space;

• Rocky Mountain Seed Buildings, a building at the intersection of 15th and Market streets, and;

• Union Station Block A, two new buildings at the intersection of 16th and Wewatta Streets.

Last year, six other downtown Denver projects were also honored.
