“Every building going up is tan, brown, red or burnt red,” says Brad Evans, moderator of the Denver FUGLY Facebook page. “That’s every color. I have 50 buildings from townhomes to multi-family buildings that are the same color, same façade,” the former Jefferson Park resident adds.
Evans recently relocated to the suburb of Lakewood in part to escape the proliferation of “ugly” architecture. “The whole neighborhood was basically being torn down; they were building these shit boxes, so that was in my face every day and I was getting tired of it,” he says.
