Wall Street of the Rockies

—Seventeenth Street Denver, Colorado —

The downtown skyline was transformed in the late 1970s and early 1980s as the Denver economy boomed based on the price of oil. As oil prices fell below $10/barrel in 1986, Denver's economy contracted.

In 1986, the Denver economy entered its worst downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The drop in the price of oil led to major lay-offs at many Denver petroleum companies. Downtown land prices declined as much as 80% and office vacancy rates exceeded 35%.
