  • What Does Lodo Need? A Bank!

    / Comments (4)

    If you've strolled downtown recently, you've probably run across stencils on sidewalks asking the question: "What does Lodo need?" Follow the question online and you'll find a site where you can submit your answer. While many good answers were submitted (over 3,000 in total) — like a grocery store, green spaces, dog/park bar and music venue — no one said "a bank," which turns out to be the organization behind the campaign. Alpine Bank of Colorado, a locally operated and employee-owned $2.4 billion-dollar organization, has opened its first Denver branch at 1777 Wynkoop Street.

    Though the first part of the campaign was anticlimactic, the campaign's saving grace is that the bank's giving away a $100,000, two-year, interest-free small business loan to the person with the best idea — to help them bring it to life for real. Can we make sure the winner isn't recommending another bar for cologne-laden guidos?
