The 16th Street Mall has been a thriving center of commerce and recreation in Denver since it was opened on October 4, 1982. The journey to build the mall started in 1971 and it took over a decade of planning and construction until it was completed. Before the mall existed the area was occupied by four major department stores and numerous office buildings.
At the time it was built, the 16th Street Mall was considered to be one of the three best examples of Modernist design in Denver public spaces. Since that time the other two places, Zeckendorf Plaza and Skyline Park, have both since been demolished.
Today the mall is a fantastic place to work and visit, filled with great options for dining, shopping and entertainment. The MallRide transports an average of 55,000 commuters and tourists every single day! If you’re one of those many people who finds themselves in the area and looking for one of the 16th Street Mall restaurants, please considering joining us and dining at 5280 Burger Bar!
