At least the site plans are much more urban now than anything built in the 80's. You might have dated designs but in most cases the buildings front the sidewalk making a retrofit easier than the 70's/80's model of giant complexes surrounded by parking and trees. Of course there are still complexes like that being built in suburban areas but not in the inner city.
On another note there is another sign up at Union Station, this one for the south wing building at 16th & Wynkoop. That makes 4 signs now up along 16th for the 4 different mixed-use/office buildings proposed there. Hopefully that means construction is not far from happening. If all those buildings go up at roughly the same time it will be quite a sight..
Also noticed the site for 1490 Delgany is now fenced off and they are doing some site work there. They still have to demo the building along 15th. Doesn't that project include a good amount of street level retail/restaurant space?
