Many condo buildings in and around downtown Denver have rooftop decks especially the new ones. I am collecting pictures of downtown Denver from the rooftop decks of condominium buildings.
Located in historic Capitol Hill, the Penn Square Condos at 550 E 12th Ave were built in 1967.

The highest floor in the Penn Square Condos is 19th so there is a good amount of height on the rooftop that is essentially the 20th story. The building is located in the Capitol Hill neighborhood close to Cheeseman Park. There are not a lot of the buildings around it that are taller than it is, which enables some pretty good views of downtown Denver skyline and mountains, however it was slightly hazy on this day.
I would rate this rooftop deck an 8 on the quality because of significant landmarks like the Colorado State Capitol and mountain views and downtown Denver skyline views. I would rate this rooftop deck an 8 on height because it it is tall in comparison to the surrounding buildings. I enjoyed all of the downtown Denver buildings I could see and the views of the Capitol and the views of the Golden Triangle neighborhood and the views of the Country Club towers with the Cherry Creek neighborhood in the distance..
