The myriad of cranes marking our Denver skyline has caused mixed emotions in the city’s residents. There is fear that prices will continue to climb with the influx of transplants. There is longing for a past that didn’t involve commutes detouring around construction zones. There is also a hopefulness that new growth will continue to spur the economy, financially boosting public education and providing modern, convenient housing for the burgeoning population.

Whatever one’s sentiments, there is no denying that tangible, physical growth is here in Denver, and it’s here to stay. With all the new construction, it’s likely you’ve found yourself driving around Denver thinking, “What the hell is that?” We’ve come to the rescue with an answer.

Below lists the numerous construction projects throughout the neighborhoods within Denver’s city limits.

It is a live listing and we will update it as construction projects are added or if readers like you want to know.

We are taking suggestions in the comments section of the article. Please only suggest new construction projects you would like to see included here. We will not be covering interior or exterior renovations of currently standing buildings or private, single family homes. Thank you for any and all suggestions.

    With all this building, do you think Denver would take a serious look at the roads and stop lights. It is impossible to get through downtown anymore without hitting a roadblock, POT HOLE, untimed traffic lights, etc.
