Museum Center + Art Hotel Update #3

In the last five months, since our previous update, the Museum Center & Art Hotel project has really started to take off. Situated right along Broadway, it has been very exciting seeing this project go vertical, taking out what used to be one of the worst parking lots in the Golden Triangle.

These first two pictures do not show much of the project but I posted them for a reason. Remember that not-aesthetically-pleasing blank wall of the Denver Art Museum parking garage that faced Broadway? I was standing on top of that blank wall while taking these pictures; it’s almost completely covered up!

Now for some street-level photos. The four-story, 50,000 square foot Museum Center office portion of this project has started to top out across the site. Since this is a steel build, we will see this structure go up very quickly. The Art Hotel will rise from floors five through nine and will have slightly smaller floor-to-ceiling heights than what you see now.

Here is one more view of the project from the parking garage attached to the History Colorado Center. I bumped up the resolution on this picture so you can see more detail. Make sure you click to embiggen!


The Museum Center & Art Hotel project is, in every single way, a great project to occupy this once empty lot. Even the four-story portion of this project has a huge impact along this stretch of Broadway, and I encourage you to check it out the next time you are in the area. You will be impressed, I guarantee it.

    I ride my bike by this every day on my way home. The empty lot always looked like a big ol’ mistake, so I look forward to the Art Hotel really changing the stretch of Broadway between 12th and 13th Ave.

    Also wanted to mention that the motel a block south of here has been converted into office suites, big improvement.

      I took photos of that project the same day I took these! I will be doing a post on DenverUrbanism about it within the next day or two! Stay tuned!
