Weicker Depository

-A A +A
1925, William E. and Arthur A. Fisher. 2100 E. Colfax Ave. (southeast corner of Vine St.)

This mock tower, an apparition transplanted from Florence, reaffirmed Denver's aspirations of transporting Old World grandeur to the nouveau-riche Rocky Mountain West and gained national coverage in Architectural Record. Ogee-arched openings grace the travertine sheathing of the first two levels, and six upper brick levels rise to a flared, crenelated parapet of what is still used as a warehouse.
