16M Update #7

Let’s head up the street and check in over at 16M. This project, just like The Platform, is in an exciting phase of construction: the facade has started to go up! Because 16M is in Lower Downtown, there were very specific design guidelines this project needed to meet. One very clear feature of the facade is copious amounts of brick are being used.

Here is the building from both 16th Street Mall and 15th Street along Market Street. The building is now up to nine stories which means it will top out when the next floor is poured. Can you spot the brick behind the scaffolding?


Here is a closer look at the brickwork. 16M will feature both red and dark brown brick on the facade with plenty of glass mixed in!


Next time you are on the 16th Street Mall and you pass by 16M, stop and take a second look at it and think back to 2012 when the single story Office Depot stood on this site. I’m confident you will all agree with me when I say, what a fantastic improvement 16M brings to this previously underutilized intersection!

    Thanks for the update, this building is already changing the feel of this block. Now if we can get rid of the parking lot just north of it.

    My office more or less has the view of your second photograph.

    I’m trying to figure out what is going on with the Rocky Mountain Seed Company building they are working around. Is this being included in the design? Because they are currently building something on it’s roof and I really don’t know what it could be.

    Does anyone have an idea how tall that building of the parking lot to the north might be?

    This is a very attractive project, adding retail, office, and residential space. High-quality building ingredients. Everything we need in this part of town.

    The Office Depot was some sort of ribbed concrete construction that I see in various places around Denver that is very unattractive.

    I just walked by this location and I noticed something going on directly next to the Seed Co’s building (The corner of 15th and Market) They were definitely digging down, do you have any idea what is going on there?
