See that full block of surface parking in the above photo? Soon this entire block will contain an incredible mixed-use development that will better connect Downtown Denver to Coors Field. If you need a little refresher on what this project is, we have all of the gorgeous renderings in our announcement post.

Today’s update is going to focus on the details of this project. Back in November, we knew it was going to be a mixed-use project but didn’t know how it was broken down. The pair of buildings, one 11 stories, and the other 13, will include 114 condos, 144,693 square feet of hotel space, 87,091 square feet of retail, 210,900 square feet of office space, and a 34,015 square foot area dedicated to a Rockies hall of fame, and event space. Between the two buildings, the project will feature a great, screen-lined, outdoor plaza which will be a great gathering space before, during, and after the game.

As much as we wish we could say construction has officially begun, there are still a few steps to take before excavators show up. Stantec, the architecture firm designing this project, submitted a site plan to the city last month.  Construction is still expected to start this year. For now, we can imagine that this…

…will turn into this!
