Blast from the Past: Denver Postal Annex Demolition

For all you newbies to Denver, a massive blonde brick building—the Denver Postal Annex—once occupied the entire block along Wynkoop between 15th and 16th across the street from the Tattered Cover. Not only did the building’s architecture not fit in with its historic LoDo neighbors, but the truck loading docks and lack of sidewalks along the Wynkoop side made navigating the area as a pedestrian quite a challenge. I took this photo on a blustery March 13, 2005 while demolition of the building was underway. Off in the distance, the Hyatt Regency Denver Convention Center climbs into the Denver skyline:

The Postal Annex was replaced by the EPA Region 8 Headquarters and 1515 Wynkoop.

    I had forgotten how awful the postal annex was. Good riddance.
