Well, per my definition,

I've always thought of a downtown in terms of centralized, dense commercial activity
I don't consider Arapahoe Square part of downtown. A sea of parking lots is about as far away as it gets from centralized, dense commercial activity as you can get in an urban area. Also, the sparse commercial buildings in Arapahoe Square are hardly dense. It wouldn't surprise me if the total square footage of all the buildings in Arapahoe Square put together was less than, say, the Republic Plaza.

I also don't consider North Capitol Hill (Uptown) part of downtown and it's much more developed and dense than Arapahoe Square.

I think the definition of Downtown is the Central Business District. I think parking lots are part of a business district.
