If you’re thinking the Golden Triangle is in Golden, you’d be mistaken. Though the two neighborhoods are both highly-sought after, one’s in the foothills and the other can be found in the bustling downtown area.
The Downtown Denver Partnership and the Golden Triangle Neighborhood Association define the Golden Triangle as extending one block east to Lincoln Street (incorporating almost all of Civic Center Park and the institutions surrounding them, with the exception of the Colorado State Capitol in the Capitol Hill neighborhood and a few buildings to the north of Colfax Avenue). The main street through the Golden Triangle is Bannock. 13th, 14th, and 8th avenues are important east-west streets as well. All of the streets that provide the borders for the neighborhood (Lincoln/Broadway, Colfax, and Speer) are important transportation corridors for Denver.
The Golden Triangle is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver, with many single family 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, and placing a leafy concrete urban canyon around Cherry Creek, creating Speer Boulevard, the neighborhood's western and southern border.
Starting in the 1990s the neighborhood began its transformation into a functional multi-use neighborhood. 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.
The Golden Triangle is still undergoing many transformations. The area's proximity to the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Central Library, and several other major arts and cultural institutions, along with the eclectic businesses of South Broadway and the popular recreational trails along Cherry Creek, have propelled the area into the spotlight of the City's infill developments.
