“Rising 330 feet above Sixteenth Street, the Daniels and Fisher Tower in Denver was based on St. Mark’s Campanile in Venice and opened in 1911 as a beacon drawing shoppers to the adjacent Daniels and Fisher department store. The Daniels and Fisher department store closed in 1958 and was demolished for Denver’s Skyline Urban Renewal Project in 1970–71, but the tower was spared and eventually converted into offices. The tallest structure in Denver for more than forty years after it opened, the tower continues to be one of the city’s most iconic buildings.” — Colorado Encyclopedia
