Denver has received high praise from Forbes magazine which includes Denver on its list of 15 U.S. cities with emerging downtowns.
The article is highlighted by a picture of development around Union Station.
Forbes says that one of the main factors businesses consider when deciding on where to relocate or expand is the available pool of college-educated workers. And that has cities competing for college-educated young adults.
"And there's one place this desired demographic, college-educated professionals between the ages of 25 and 34, tends to want to live: tight-knit urban neighborhoods that are close to work and have lots of entertainment and shopping options within an easy walk."
