Join DAF for an in-person tour of the new Colorado Rockies McGregor Square. This tour will be offered TWICE:
- Saturday, October 2, 11am-12:30pm
- Sunday, October 3, 11am-12:30pm
About the tour: The tour will feature a wide variety of spaces that make up McGregor Square. Starting along the perimeter of the projects, we’ll talk about and walk through the unique public realm experience from Wynkoop Promenade through the center of the plaza. We’ll visit the Rally Hotel, rooftop terraces and shared amenity decks.
About the square: The Colorado Rockies McGregor Square is a mixed-use entertainment district in downtown Denver adjacent to the Colorado Rockies Coors Field. McGregor Square connects the ballpark to a neighborhood that has dramatically transformed itself into a vibrant downtown precinct over the past 20 years with direct access to Union Station and the RiNo district, making it a critical urban connection point. A Rockies Hall of Fame experience and public gathering spaces combine with urban retail, restaurants, multi-family residences, hotel and offices to create a rich urban fabric, promoting and enhancing pedestrian connectivity to create a sense of place through environmental graphics, intuitive wayfinding, art, landscape and iconic interactive features.
