1906

—Lower Downtown Walking Tour —

For more than a century, Denver's warehouse district has centered on Wynkoop. Stimulated by the arrival of the railroads in 1870 and the subsequent need for distribution services, an impressive array of three-to-five story warehouses, flat roofed and faced in brick and often with stone trim, popped up from Cherry Creek to 19th Street. Unlike industrial plants built by engineers, most warehouses were the work of architects, and reflected the desire by warehousers for elegant and prestigious buildings in which to house both their storage facilities and their corporate offices. At one time, almost all warehouses along Wynkoop had covered loading docks and rail spurs. Sections of track are still visible as it is in the alley behind 1600 Wynkoop Street. This edifice housed Barteldes, Hartig & Co., a wholesale purveyor of fruits, produce and seeds, as well as feed, grain and hay. The present building, designed by Gove & Walsh to support 600 pounds per square foot, was built in 1906. A pedestrian bridge from the former 16th Street viaduct once led to the second story of this warehouse. Also of note are the double-wide alleys running between Wynkoop and Wazee Street which contained store fronts.
