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!
