THE BUM'S RUSH

"For a downtown to have a character and a culture, it has to have different neighborhoods," Seydel says. "We've still got some true grit."

Lower downtown may drop the notion of swallowing the Ballpark Neighborhood. But the empire-building does not end there. Over at the Downtown Denver Partnership, downtown's booster group, there's talk of taking over the Lower Downtown District; with its eye also turned to the property just across the tracks from LoDo, the partnership has already established a Central Platte Valley Development Council. The British are coming.

Up on Larimer, where flim-flam men and bunko artists have practiced their arts for a century, neighbors keep a wary eye on the people who would plan for their future now that the future looks so bright. And in the meantime, they get on with their business.

They're not about to wait and see what develops.
