1144 Fifteenth Update #9

Goodbye hole in the ground, hello rising core! Downtown Denver’s largest project is officially out of the ground.

Watching a project like 1144 Fifteenth Street is quite the journey. From the ground-breaking ceremony to watching giant foundation piers go down over 100 feet and needing aerial coverage for peeking in the hole, we can finally see this 40-story, 603-foot tall tower rise from the street.

So what’s next for 1144 Fifteenth Street? The parking structure, which will rise 12-stories. This will be the slowest rising segment due to the concrete framing and structural support that is needed.

How about a couple of bonus photos! Here is one from the good folks over at Hines.

    The building will be 42 stories. Mechanical floors 41 & 42 are still floors.

      Ryan and I had a discussion about this with the guys from Hines. Even though there will be two mechanical floors (41, 42), they are characterizing the building as a 40-story tower since the highest floor the general public will ever experience will be 40.

      Exactly. The Four Seasons building next door has two basement floors too, but that doesn’t make the building 47 stories.
