A major new office tower is proposed for Downtown Denver: 1144 15th Street.
To be developed by Hines, 1144 15th will provide 640,000 square feet of office space in a 40-story glass tower rising up from 15th Street between Arapahoe and Lawrence Streets, sharing the block with the Four Seasons. Here’s a Google Earth aerial with the site outlined:

According to the Denver Business Journal, Hines is planning to build the tower as a 100% speculative project based on the strength of the Downtown market. Construction is scheduled to begin May 2015 with completion in mid-2017.
This isn’t the first time Hines has proposed this project. Twice since the early 2000s, Hines had marketed a tower at this location, but with a pre-leasing requirement that never materialized. From our DenverInfill archives, here is an image of the proposed tower (then known as 1100 15th) from 2001:
What an exciting project! We will keep you posted as more details about the project become available over the coming months.
