Railway Exchange Building

RAILWAY EXCHANGE ADDITION AND RAILWAY EXCHANGE NEW BUILDING (Hotel Monaco)

1715 Champa St. & 909 17th St.

National Register 10/17/1997, 5DV.525/5DV.526

 

"The 1909/1913 Railway Exchange Addition and its interconnected companion, the 1937 New Building, were designed by the Fisher & Fisher architectural firm. The buildings provide a rare opportunity to view in one location the 30-year stylistic evolution of the firm and represent a good solution to the challenge of joining a new building to an older structure both functionally and stylistically. The New Building is Denver’s finest example of Art Moderne commercial architecture." -- Description from the Colorado Historical Society Website.
