The Story

Once home to the Windsor Dairy, the Dairy Block is a unique micro-district in Denver’s historic Lower Downtown neighborhood. As part of the mixed-use redevelopment with The Maven Hotel and activated pedestrian alley, the upstairs office space continues the Dairy Block’s immersive, dynamic experience. The new collection of artworks create elements of surprise around every corner, such as the painted elevators by Michael Dowling that nod to the property’s history as the site of Windsor Dairy. Intimate works are juxtaposed with large-scale, museum-quality installations that position the building as one of the most progressive corporate spaces in Downtown Denver, ripe with local history and present-day sophistication.

Our ability to create authentic experiences for our guests is a key differentiator against our competition, and the art program that NINE dot ARTS created is a prime example. Much of the art comes from current Boston University (BU) students and alumni, which really connects with our guests. As a result, we continue to grow our share of business from BU.”
