Let’s head on over to the Source Hotel and Market Hall as it has made significant progress since our last update. As a refresher, the Source Hotel will feature 100 guest rooms with the Market Hall covering approximately 19,000 square feet, featuring restaurant and retail spaces around a large common area.
Beginning with the exterior of the project, here are two photos taken from nearby projects. The eight-story building is close to topping out with one more floor to go. Most of the building is still a concrete shell; however, exterior framing and windows have started to go in.
For this update, we are going to take a tour of the project and explore some of the neat elements this project has to feature. A huge thank you to Chris Woldum of Zeppelin Development for taking DenverInfill on this tour! The ground floor will mostly feature hotel operations such as the lobby, check-in, and back of the house.
The second floor is where the Market Hall will reside. This expansive space, with skylights and ample natural lighting, will complement The Source with various small retailers and restaurants. Even though this is on the second floor, it lines up with The Source and will easily connect through a courtyard without having to take any stairs or elevators.
Heading up to the hotel, which is setback from the first two stories, we can see that exterior windows are starting to go in, and interior framing for the hotel rooms has begun. The hotel starts on level three and goes up to eight.
Structural work is still underway for both the Market Hall and Source Hotel, but this project will be topping out in the very near future.
Because this project is right along the rail tracks, the views from the top of the hotel are nothing short of spectacular. Here is a panorama of the Denver skyline taken from the seventh floor.
When turning the camera slightly to the west, we clearly see the booming Brighton corridor with Union Station behind it.
The Source Hotel and Market Hall is an exciting project for many different reasons. It adds a new retail front to Brighton Boulevard, which will enhance the pedestrian experience once the street improvements are complete, and it complements The Source which is an already wildly successful project.
