Denver’s New SkyScraper Signals Recession Recovery in Colorado says Construction Reporter

Industry: Commerical Building

The 40-story, 603 foot skyscraper referred to as 1144 Fifteenth Street will be a 661,000 square-foot glass and aluminum office tower will be the tallest since the 80's.

Colorado (PRUnderground) July 9th, 2015

Based in downtown Denver, the developer for 1144 Fifteenth Street is Houston-based Hines Interest Limited Partnership and the architect is New Haven, Connecticut-based Pickard Chilton.

Because of the scope and the building and the fact that it is being built without pre-committed tenants is a signal for many that the recession, at least in Denver, has passed.

The skyscraper will include office space on 27 floors with ten of those stories having floor-to-ceiling windows with a view of the Rocky Mountains or city of Denver.  It will have 25,000 square-foot floor plates;5,500 square-feet of retail space; a 5,500 square foot gym and over 800 parking spaces.  The parking will include 10 electric car charging stations, bike racks, and almost 50 bike storage lockers.

It wll also have a lit tower with a LED light strip running vertically from the base to the crown. Interest in the building from potential tenants has been very strong.  1144 Fifteenth Street  will be the fourth tallest building in Denver.
