A transformed mixed-use neighborhood center along the 16th Street Mall between Wazee and Wynkoop Streets, Mercantile Square contributes to the continuing development of Denver's historic Lower Downtown District. The six masonry buildings that comprise Mercantile Square date from the late 1800s and turn of the century, encompassing 250,000 SF and serving as the town center for the neighborhood. The restoration and adaptive reuse of the buildings ties the area's historic past with the needs of the present.
This urban revitalization project was the first multi-building mixed use adaptive redevelopment in Lower Downtown—the catalyst for reinvestment in and preservation of today’s revitalized historic district.
