Best Deletion From the Denver Skyline (2004)

The "Old" Colorado Convention Center

The new Colorado Convention Center will thoroughly cover the hideous old Colorado Convention Center -- a huge, scale-less, circa 1990 shoebox that was arguably the ugliest building ever to have been erected in downtown Denver. Fentress Bradburn Architects designed that done-on-the-cheap structure, and the same crew was tapped to create its replacement. The over-the-top new center, slated for completion this December, has been a dark cloud over downtown for years, but in getting rid of an architectural monstrosity like the existing center, the project does have a silver lining.
