The Rollnick Hotel Update #5

In a short two and a half months, the Rollnick Hotel has made incredible progress. From barely up four-stories, the project is now topped out with a lot of exterior work taking place. As a refresher, the Rollnick Hotel will rise a total of eight-stories and provide 200-rooms to the Cherry Creek North neighborhood.

Let’s take a look at a few progress photos. As we have seen with some recent projects, especially around lodging, blank walls are used for various reasons; the most common being that neighboring buildings may be torn down for something more dense / tall. The same case for blank walls apply to the Rollnick Hotel. It is surrounded by lower density buildings that could be redeveloped thus blank walls are used.

Here are two street level perspectives of the project. The building has topped out giving us a good idea on the final massing. The facade, with the exception of the blank wall, has yet to go up.

The Rollnick Hotel is expected to open later this year. We will come back for a visit once the main facade starts making progress.

    What is the maximum building height allowed by zoning in Cherry Creek? How dense can it get? Will it emerge as a counter balance vertically to downtown?

    Note to editor: please delete last comment. Zooming in it looks like the “yellow” is not actually the surface material but is subsurface insulation/waterproofing (I think). Had only seen it from afar, lol. I assume in fact that the additional finishes to be added will more closely resemble the conceptual drawing.

      The yellow is the air and weather barrier on a Prefabricated Backup Panel. A metal panel will be field installed at this location. The white is a Prefabricated Finished Panel and is the final finish.

    Can ‘Cherry Creek’ answer Andrew’s question?

    Tom and Cherry Creek-

    The zoning in Cherry Creek North is a tiered zoning that starts at “CCN-4” on the south side of 3rd, and goes up to “CCN-8” on the north side of 1st. However there is also a viewplane ordinance that limits the 3rd street frontage to about 3 stories even though it is zoned for 4. See their older post for more detail:

    Thanks Seth! That was really helpful.
