Mile High Mosaic – Solving the Urban Puzzle

51st Annual Conference of the International Downtown Association
September 10 – 13, 2005
Denver, Colorado

Conference Overview

One of the nation's most remarkable urban revitalization stories lies nestled on the eastern edge of the great Rocky Mountain range – a mile-high city with mile-high accomplishments and ambitions. Downtown Denver is a truly astounding success story.

Fifty years ago a new partnership was born, dedicated to the notion that downtown Denver could avoid the fate of decline and fading economic fortune that many downtowns were facing. Downtown leaders believed they could create a magnet that would literally draw people from all over the globe – and that dream has come true.

Today, downtown Denver has not only transformed the bricks and mortar architecture of downtown – it has transformed the spirit of its people. A new lifestyle has emerged, infusing those who live and work there and those who visit with a passion for life and health. Few cities see so many people walking, running and biking to their destinations. Few boast the hustling, bustling nightlife that has made Denver the place to be day and night. Few have seen such an explosion of downtown residential development. Few are creating an environment for small businesses that make Denver a hotbed for entrepreneurs. And even fewer have done all this with the grace and style you'll see in downtown Denver.

Join us for the 51st Annual International Downtown Association Conference. You'll see a city, a downtown, and a downtown organization that has become the envy of North America and the world.
