While you can find Design Workshop’s projects across the globe, you don’t have to look further than Cherry Creek to see the impact of its work. After a total revamp of Cherry Creek North, the firm’s success brought a 16% increase in retail sales tax for the business district just a couple years after project completion.
“Today, Cherry Creek North has seen a wave of private investment in new housing, retail, office and hospitality space, making the district a major attraction and regional juggernaut,” the firm says.
