245 Columbine Update #2

At 245 Columbine, in the Cherry Creek North neighborhood, sits an abandoned post office, waiting for redevelopment. It was originally proposed as a 7-story office building however, this project has been completely redesigned as a 7-story, 150-room luxury hotel. This change was in response to a lawsuit filed against the city by the Cherry Creek North Neighborhood Association who were unhappy with the land use and development of this site; which has has no activity since our update in May 2013.

There are currently no official renderings for this project but we do know some details: BMC Investments and Sage Hospitality are the developers, wanting to develop an independent, botique hotel with Kilpp Architecure, the original architect for the office building, designing the new building. Mortensen Construction is the general contractor and are expecting to break ground in the fall. We will keep you posted as soon as we get more information on this project!

EDIT: Here is a preliminary rendering of 245 Columbine, courtesy of JG Johnson.

    Your pictures don’t show it but there is a construction fence up around this site now. I feel like demolition may be imminent.

    What’s going in the big hole in the ground at 8th and Sherman?

    Whew, glad to see that old post office go. As post offices go, this one was only slightly more attractive than the window-less thing that used to sit next to Union Station. Remember that POS?

    I just want to clarify that the correct name for JG Johnson is JG Johnson Architects. And thank you for such amazing updates!
