Capital Grille
(3D digital model)

Name: Capital Grille

Type: Commercial

Square Footage: 7,500 SF

Description: A 1-story commercial restaurant space filling in what was the last remaining open lot on the historic Larimer Square block.

Cost: $4.5 million

Architect: Buchanan Yonushewski Group

Current status: Construction completed late 2003.

In January, 2006, Toronto-based developer Great Gulf Group announced plans for what would have become Denver's tallest residential tower located on the surface parking lot site at the corner of 14th and Lawrence. The project, known as 1401 Lawrence, was first announced at 55 stories and a few months later was scaled back to 51 stories. The project was to include 145 high-end condo units designed by Peter Clewes of architectsAlliance. A $1 million sales center was constructed on the site in Summer 2007 and, later that year, the developer announced plans to start construction in December 2008. Due to poor sales and the troubled capital markets, the project was unexpectedly cancelled in May, 2008.

Despite the cancellation of 1401 Lawrence, the 14th & Lawrence parcel is one of the best located in Downtown, situated between the Four Seasons and Larimer Square.
