Ryan showed us in Part 1 the Triangle Building’s shiny angular exterior forms. In Part 2, let’s take a tour of the interior and check out some of the awesome views from the top of the building!
The Triangle Building has two main entries, one facing 16th Street and the other facing Wewatta. The 16th Street portal is the larger of the two and offers views of the gorgeous lobby that features white quartz walls, white terrazzo floors and a dramatic swoopy ceiling made of polished wood. The project architect is Anderson Mason Dale.
Due to a site grade change between the building’s east and west sides, the lobby steps down from the 16th Street entry to the Wewatta entry:
Looking back at the main entry, a distinctive glass TRIANGLE sign above the door captures the light in different ways throughout the day and is illuminated in the evening:
The quartz, terrazzo, and wood design features extend through the lobby to the smaller Wewatta entry (complete with its own TRIANGLE sign), next to which is the entrance to the underground parking garage.
The floor-to-ceiling glass used for the retail spaces on the ground-floor have been carried up to the second level, where tenant finish is just getting underway for WeWork, which will occupy several floors in the 10-story building (the other major building tenant announced so far is Liberty Global):
Here we see the building’s standard open floor plate:
The subtle step along the Triangle building’s Wewatta elevation (or the hypotenuse to be more geometrical than architectural about it) provides each triangle-shaped floor plate the opportunity to have four “corner” offices, according to East West Partners‘ Ryan Stone. (Thank you Ryan for the great tour!)
Let’s go to the roof where awesome views abound!
To the southwest down Wewatta Street towards the Pepsi Center:
To the south and Downtown Denver’s growing skyline:
To the southeast looking up the 16th Street Mall:
Denver Union Station, Coors Field, and LoDo to the east:
Across 16th Street to the northeast, the Union Station commuter rail platforms and, in the foreground, excavation for the Kimpton Hotel/1881 16th Street projects:
To the north, the Pivot, Union Tower West, and 1975 18th Street projects are making steady progress:
To the northwest and the Millennium Bridge:
Looking west at the Speer bridge over the South Platte River and Elitch Gardens:
Finally, one last view from where we started, looking southwest along Wewatta, where the Triangle building’s sleek facade mirrors its urban surroundings:
That’s it for our coverage of the Triangle building! However… we will next take a look at the cool urban plaza wrapping up construction along the Triangle’s edge.
