The development around Union Station is a step above what we're seeing in Minneapolis, and the renovation of the depot itself is just drop dead gorgeous.

As far as why they're building differently, I'm quite certain that it's all economics -- land costs are higher, and rents are higher, thereby allowing you to do more expensive buildings. There shouldn't be anything different code-wise.

Yeah, the whole Union Station area is amazing.

I wasn't sure about building codes - are they pretty standardized nationally? Or even internationally?

The International Building Code is broadly (but not universally) adopted in the United States. It gets updated every three years, but there's typically a lag in adoption. For example, the state of Minnesota is running on the 2012 version of the code. Local jurisdictions can and do amend the code.

Home prices are steeply dropping in Denver.

They've had a really overheated market, so that's not surprising.
