The SugarSquare project in Lower Downtown is now under construction. Local developer Urban Villages is filling in a narrow 25-foot-wide gap in the 1500 block of Wazee with a 10,800-square foot, four-story office building—technically an addition to the historic Sugar Building—that’s just across the alley from their sharp SugarCube office/residential project completed in 2008. For more information on SugarSquare, check out our announcement post from April 2016.

Site preparation work has been underway for a couple of weeks, but we waited to do this update until real construction had begun. Here was the busy SugarSquare site this afternoon:

This project will go up fairly quickly, so we’ll stop by SugarSquare in a couple of months to bring you another update. Happy weekend, Denver!
