Reimagining Downtown,

One Storefront at a Time

The City of Denver Department of Economic Development and Opportunity and Downtown Denver Partnership have teamed up to activate storefronts on Denver’s most prominent commercial district: the 16th Street Mall. In Round 1 of the program, five businesses were selected through a competitive process and each were awarded a $20,000 package in interior design, setup and merchandising support.

Funding has been approved for a second round of pop-ups which is currently in the property owner engagement phase. The application period is expected to relaunch in early 2023. Interested property owners and entrepreneurs may submit their interest at the bottom of this page.
