SHOT 1/15/08 1:58:36 PM - A lunchtime crowd packs the sidewalks along the 16th Street Mall in Denver, Co. The 16th Street Mall is a pedestrian and transit mall in Denver, Colorado. The mall, 1.25 miles (2 kilometers) long, runs along 16th Street in downtown Denver, from Wewatta Street (at Union Station) to the intersection of 16th Avenue and Broadway (at Civic Center Station). The 16th Street Mall opened in 1982, originally from Market Street to Broadway, and was originally designed by I.M. Pei, the notable architect of the Louvre Pyramid. The Mall was extended from Market Street to Wynkoop Street in 2001 and to Union Station in 2002 to coincide with the completion of the Central Platte Valley (CPV) light rail spur. Before 1982, 16th Street was still a shopping and business destination that was home to four major department stores and many office buildings. A free shuttle bus service along the mall, operated by the Regional Transportation District (RTD), is known as MallRide..(Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2008)
