Denver’s possible new tallest skyscraper
A New York developer is moving ahead with plans to build an ambitious condo tower in downtown Denver that would become the city’s tallest, if approved. Greenwich Realty Capital first unveiled plans for the project at 17th and California St. last September. At the time, a spokesman said the building would be in excess of 75 stories but it wasn’t yet clear what the actual height would be. Plans for 650 17th St. became a little bit more concrete last week when the developer filed a concept with the city that calls for an 81-story mixed-use tower. In September, the developer said the building would house about 250 condos, a hotel, ground-floor retail and hundreds of parking spaces. Feedback is welcomed about city codes that need to be met before the developer submits a formal site plan.

Despite the holiday often being referred to as “Presidents’ Day” in practice, the official federal holiday continues to be known as “Washington’s Birthday.” When George Washington himself was alive, people honored the occasion with balls and banquets. The celebration continued after his death as a way to remember what America’s first president did for the Nation. February 22, the date of Washington’s birth in 1732, became a federal holiday in 1879.
