Today we are going to take a quick peek at 16M, the mixed-use (office, retail, residential) project situated on Market Street and 16th Street Mall. We haven’t visited this site in a while because there were 3 levels of underground parking that had to be completed and there wasn’t much to look at.
Today is a different story though. The three levels of parking are finally complete and we are finally able to see this structure above ground level! Here are some pictures of 16M from this afternoon. One floor down, nine to go!
We should now start to see 16M rise very quickly and see completion about a year from now.
Earlier this month a new tower crane was installed at 16M. This last weekend a second tower crane was installed on the project site at 16th and Market.
With two cranes up we should see 16M go vertical very quickly! As far as construction progress is concerned, there isn’t much going on in the giant hole right now but as soon as the structure starts to go up we will visit this project again.
It’s always nice to see yet another tower crane around Downtown Denver!
It’s not very often we see two tower cranes go up on two different project sites all in less than a week’s time span. 16M now has a tower crane on site and we should start seeing vertical construction very soon! Exciting!
As always, I have some pictures of the new crane for you! Nothing like fresh rain and a deep blue sky on this gorgeous spring day!
For a little high resolution bonus shot, here is the view off of the Millennium Bridge. Notice 16M’s new crane? Also, this is the last year you will be able to see the skyline from this bridge, so get all your pictures taken!
Construction just keeps on trekking along around Downtown Denver. What an exciting year so far!
Here’s a quick update on 16M, the new mixed-use project located at the corner of 16th and Market in Lower Downtown Denver.
On New Year’s Day, Ryan posted Update #1 on the development: photos showing that the old Office Depot building had been reduced to a pile of rubble. I’m not sad to see the former building on this site go.
Today, in Update #2, I don’t have any new construction photos. The project is just at the “big hole in the ground” stage. Instead, what I do have is the latest renderings of the project, courtesy of Kiana at Newmark Knight Frank Frederick Ross. These images show the final refinement of the building’s design, and they are at super high resolution too!

Happy New Year DenverInfill readers! We’re going to start off the year with a very exciting update on a very exciting project. If you’ve been around 16th and Market lately you might be asking yourself, where did the Office Depot go? Well, it’s finally gone to make way for something much better!
One of the ugliest buildings in Downtown Denver is now a pile of rubble leaving a huge gap and a very interesting sight when you’re heading down either 16th Street Mall or Market Street. (Click the thumbnails to embiggen)
Seeing this pile of rubble brings me great joy and I’m very excited for what’s going in its place; a tastefully designed 10-story building, with office space, apartment units, and most importantly for being along the mall, ground floor retail. Head over to Ken’s post for the final renderings of 16M.
16M is going in at a very vital intersection. There’s huge potential for development across the street, which is currently a parking lot, and as soon as Union Station opens Market Street Station will close and become a prime spot for redevelopment. 16M should be complete by 2014.
Back in April 2012, we reported on the new mixed-use office/apartment project, known then as 1350 16th Street, proposed for the corner of 16th and Market in Lower Downtown Denver, site of the downtown Office Depot for many years. Since then, the project has received its approvals from the city and the Office Depot has moved to its new home in the EPA Building at 16th and Wynkoop. Today, demolition began on the former Office Depot building, perhaps one of the ugliest buildings in Downtown Denver and infamous for its nearly block-long blank wall along Market Street. Here are two photos from this morning:
In its place will be 16M, the new name for the project being developed by Integrated Properties, Sage Hospitality, Elevation Development Group, and designed by Gensler. 16M will include 130,000 square feet of office space (floors 2-6), about 47 apartment units on floors 7-10, ground-floor retail, and three levels of underground parking.
Here are the final renderings of this project:

16M should be completed in 2014. What an exceptional improvement for Lower Downtown and the 16th Street Mall!
