Westminster Colorado


This week I completed a 3 story commercial building in Westminster Colorado.


Some facts about Westminster: Gold discovered in the South Platte River Valley in 1858 brought national attention to the area that would become Westminster, Colorado. The promise of fortune and the Land Act of 1862 encouraged many settlers from the east to make Colorado their home instead of heading on to California. Before the settlements came, wildlife like antelope and buffalo made their homes in this area.


The area experienced a huge population growth starting from 1950.  See the chart below:

 July 25 will mark the beginning of train service to Denver... 11 minutes to downtown Denver! July 30, at the station there will be a party to celebrate the new station, 6-10.  The celebration will include a free concert, food, vendors, kid’s activities, free train rides and fireworks.
