About

The vibrant urban mosaic of Denver reverberates here. From perusing new records and vintage clothing, to chowing down on exquisite Cuban cuisine, to marveling at the canvasses of Clyfford Still, the “Triangle” is where creativity, diversity, and livability collide.

The State Capitol building was erected in the 1890’s, transforming the area into the civic  anchor of Denver. In the early 20th century, the “City Beautiful” movement launched major planning initiatives and new construction of government and cultural facilities to beautify the city center, and this legacy of neighborhood pride continues to this day.

Within the boundaries of the Triangle you can find Civic Center Park, the City and County of Denver offices, the Colorado State Capitol, History Colorado, the Denver Art Museum, the U.S. Mint Museum, the Clyfford Still Museum, and the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art. These institutions make up the civic and cultural axes of Denver, accentuating the rich mix of residential living, design offices, art galleries, restaurants, cafes, and retail that surround them.

Recent History

In 2014 the Golden Triangle implemented a new Neighborhood Plan to meet the evolving market and social forces of Denver, ensuring a viable, prosperous future. In June 2016, the Golden Triangle received its official designation as a Colorado Creative District. This Creative District designation advances the Triangle as an internationally celebrated arts and culture destination by encouraging urban revitalization, economic development, and support for community creatives.

Today, the Triangle is flourishing. It maintains a sophisticated, storied character while enthusiastically welcoming new community members. Residents pass by extraordinary pieces of art on their walks to work; visitors explore everything from world-renowned museums to treasured local shops; and businesses choose to make their home in the energetic heart of Denver.
