Located at 16th and Arapahoe Sts. in downtown Denver, the Daniels & Fisher Tower was designed by London-born Frederick Sterner and built in 1910 as the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.
The tower was modeled after the campanile in St. Mark’s Square in Venice and was originally part of the Daniels & Fisher department store. When the store was demolished in the early 1970s, the 20-story, Renaissance Revival clocktower was saved and renovated.
Look at this lobby! The footprint of the building is small, but there’s a ton of decorative detail packed into this space.
I wasn’t able to get up to the top but, apparently, a 2.5-ton bell occupies the top two floors, above the observation deck.
