Dana Crawford

Hall Of Fame Inductee — 2008

In the 1960s, award-winning preservationist Dana Crawford was the first to look at the abandoned and neglected buildings of Denver’s original main street and lower downtown (LoDo) and see the possibilities of their transformation for the city. She initiated a new concept of urban renewal, one of the first of its kind in the United States, saving the beautiful historic buildings of Larimer Square and transforming them into a festive marketplace. Since then, she has redeveloped more than one million square feet of historic property in Denver, including The Oxford Hotel, Acme Lofts, the Edbrooke Lofts, Cooper Flats Condominiums and phase one of the Flour Mill Lofts project. In each case, Crawford preserved the historic architecture and character of Denver while bringing new life and excitement to the city center.

Each Denver & Colorado Tourism Hall of Fame inductee reflects the profile of the inductee at the time of the induction.
