Mayor's Design Awards: A look at the seventeen winners

The seventh round of the Mayor's Design Awards was presented last night, to a whopping seventeen projects around the city -- some old, some new, all interesting.

The program was started in 2005, when John Hickenlooper was mayor; Mayor Michael Hancock did the honors last night, awarding prizes in seven categories to buildings/businesses that ranged from a far-from-standard 7-Eleven to a hip urban market, a refurbished Victorian house and a very contemporary home on a block of Victorian houses, and two structures devoted to beer!

Here's a look at the winners:
