Doug Walter Named to Denver Landmark Commission

Doug Walter and Dana Crawford
Doug Walter, AIA, was nominated by AIA Colorado and appointed by Mayor Hancock for a three year term on the Denver Landmarks Commission. The Commission oversees Denver's 51 historic districts plus individually named landmarks, and any work proposed for them. Since March, he had been helping to finalized the new, user-friendly Design Guidelines that went into effect August 5th of this year. The Wednesday before Union Station officially opened, he joined other members of the Commission for a private tour led by developer Walter Issenberg and preservation legend, Dana Crawford.
Crawford had been Doug's first employer, while still in architecture school. He spent a year and a half helping with the build out of many of the upper levels of the buildings that make up Larimer Square.  Over lunch, the reminisced about old friends and events at the Square. Crawford wished Doug well for his term on the Landmarks Commission, and Doug thanked Dana for helping revive the iconic Union Station for the City of Denver.
