Girls Inc. is a national organization that serves inner-city girls between the ages of 6 and 16. Educational and recreational programs include fine and performing arts, science, health, economic literacy, athletics and careers. 

 

Located on West Colfax Avenue in Denver, this new pair of buildings is comprised of a 14,000 SF Programs and Administration Building and a separate 7,000 SF Gymnasium Building, each to accommodate 200 girls. Specialized facilities include an art room, computer lab, science classroom, dance studio, a cooking classroom, general classrooms, meeting rooms, a multipurpose room, library and administrative offices. The Gym Building houses a full-size gymnasium, locker rooms and a Teen Center clubhouse. Site development includes a playground and parking.

 

 

The buildings were designed to respect the traditional streetscape and represent the beginnings of the revitalization of this portion of the long-neglected urban corridor of West Colfax.
