Last week, DenverInfill had the privilege of going “inside the infill” at 1601 Wewatta; a 10-story, 280,000 square foot office building going up in the Union Station neighborhood. The series of updates for 1601 Wewatta is quite unique. In our last ‘Inside the Infill’ update, DenverInfill toured the project when it was bottomed out; a huge hole in the ground. In this update, we visited the project when it is topped out and nearing completion. A big thanks to Dave Klebba of Hines for giving us a great and thorough tour.
First, we will start out with the ground level. Work has started on the plaza along with the stone and glass facade steadily going up.
For a refresher, here are updated renderings of both the plaza and finished building.
The lobby of 1601 Wewatta is very tall and open. There will be two elevator banks serving both the parking garage and the main 10-story office portion.
Here is a rendering of what the lobby is expected to look like when complete.
Like any office project under-construction, there isn’t much to see on the upper floors. However, there is one thing that sets 1601 Wewatta apart from the rest.
Terraces. On floors three, four and seven, there is outdoor space offering fresh air and views of the surrounding area. Here are some shots off of the third floor terrace.
The seventh floor terrace offers a great view of the Millennium Bridge.
No tour is complete without venturing to the top floor. Here are some views we were lucky enough to get on a clear day!
1601 Wewatta is making great progress and greatly contributes to the new urban fabric of the Union Station neighborhood. In the summer we will swing by and take a look at the completed project!
