Reimagining Downtown Denver,

One Storefront at a Time

Denver Economic Development & Opportunity and the Downtown Denver Partnership have teamed up to activate storefronts on Denver’s iconic 16th Street commercial corridor by reducing barriers to testing out a downtown location. After a Round 1 Pilot stage, Round 2 expands on and enhances the original program design, offering three application tracks for retail entrepreneurs at different stages of business development:


Maker Track


Explorer Track


Traveler Track

For Colorado-based retail entrepreneurs looking to develop their brand before operating a storefront.

For experienced Colorado-based retail store owners looking to test out a downtown Denver location. 

For successful retail brands looking to expand into downtown Denver.
