Notes

General Note:
View of the red brick Recreational Equipment Inc. (REI) building, located at 1416 Platte Street, and Confluence Park in the Highland neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. Shows concrete retaining walls on the South Platte River, a walkway, steps, low walls and planters in Confluence Park. The REI building has a parapet with a corbeled cornice, and three inset corbeled, blind arches delineated by pilasters. A corbeled belt course divides the elevation into two sections. The top portion has circular clerestory windows and a concrete panel that reads, "The Denver Tramway Power Co, 1901." The building was the former Denver Tramway Power Company powerhouse (1901; architects, Stearns and Rogers Co.) and home to the Forney Museum of Transportation. The building was restored and rehabilitated (1998-2000; architects- Mithun Partners, Seattle, WA) for use as a sporting goods store.
