The Lower Downtown or “LoDo” neighborhood is the original settlement of the City of Denver. It’s a commercial, residential and retail historic district, known for its nightlife, shops and restaurants. LoDo serves as an example of success in urban reinvestment and revitalization.
Land in the LoDo historic district is zoned to limit building height and encourage mixed-use development. Proposed projects must go through an architectural design review process which enables LoDo to retain its pedestrian scale and historic character as it continues to increase in density.
