SkyHouse Denver Breaks Ground!

Goodbye parking lot, hello SkyHouse!


Union Station: 1601 Wewatta Update #6

Between the time we did our last update on 1601 Wewatta and just this last weekend, a significant element has been added to the 10-story building.

New glass is starting to rise and from the looks of it, the glass is going to be clear. This will be a great contrast to its neighbors, 1900 16th Street and the DaVita World Headquarters, which have light and dark blue glass facades.

If you need a refresher on what the 1601 Wewatta will look like, head on over to our announcement post where we have multiple renderings.

Golden Triangle: Museum Center + The Art Hotel Update #5

Let’s visit the Golden Triangle neighborhood and check in at the Museum Center + Art Hotel project. Just like the Hyatt Place / Hyatt House, we can now see some of the facade elements on the building.

This project has been topped out for a while now, at 9 stories, and the tower crane has since been taken down. A lot is going on with the facade with a mix of stone, glass and paneling, but given all of the different architecture styles on this stretch of Broadway, this building fits right in.

Here is an above view of the project. There are still fences at the street level however, from this angle, you can tell that the pedestrian interaction with this building is going to be excellent!


The Museum Center + Art Hotel is expected to open sometime in March. Stay tuned for a final update!

Upper Downtown: Hyatt Place/Hyatt House Hotel Update #5

The Hyatt Place / Hyatt House project is making great progress. Since our update in August, the structure has risen significantly and the facade is starting to make its way up.

The building is now up to 16-stories with five more to go. Here are two shots looking down 14th Street and Glenarm Street. It’s amazing what kind of impact this project is already having on the 14th Street corridor.

Here are two views of the project we haven’t seen in the rendering. I was surprised to see the building ‘L’ shaped.

The Hyatt House / Hyatt Place should top out within the next few weeks. We will check back in around then!

Union Station: 1601 Wewatta Update #5

While I was up in the air taking pictures of the Triangle Building, I turned around to get a great photo of 1601 Wewatta. The building has one more floor to go before it is topped out; reaching an equivalent height of its neighbor, Cadence.


Here is a bonus shot looking down the 16th Street Mall. It’s worth nothing that the street wall on the South side is now complete from Chestnut Street all the way to Broadway!


The Union Station neighborhood is quickly becoming very dense, giving it a very urban feel. It’s exciting to see all the progress!

Union Station: The Triangle Building Update #7

I was out and about on this chilly Sunday morning taking some aerial photos around downtown and figured it’s been a while since I’ve stopped by in the Union Station neighborhood.

As we saw in our last update, the Triangle Building looks pretty sharp from the ground level. Today, I some unique perspectives of the building from around seven and ten stories up.


Here is one more perspective, just higher than the roof. Here you can clearly see the triangular shape of the building.


The glass facade is climbing quickly on the Triangle Building. I’m sure we will see a complete exterior within the next few weeks!
