Regarding General Electric Building. National Register of Historic Places #83001308. Built in 1906, this was originally the General Electric office building.
Also see . . . General Electric Building. The original use of the building was as a site for the processing of metals. Smelting and refining was the primary industry of the Denver area at the turn of the century. For a majority of its existence, the General Electric Company commercially served Denver and Colorado by using the building to warehouse and distribute electrical supplies. The architectural significance of the building arises from its sturdy, brick construction, mixed with ornate details, such as the early Art Deco details appearing on the facade, and a punched metal cornice. The dock-like structure constructed in the place of the original loading dock continues the memory of the original commercial demands of the lower-downtown area in 1906.
