The final touches are going in over at Riverview at 1700 Platte. This new building features 210,000 square feet of office space with ample ground floor retail. BP will be occupying 98,000 square feet of the building for their Lower 48 Headquarters and will bring 200 employees from their Houston office.
DenverInfill has extensive coverage of this project with a total of seven updates. Head on over to our post history to follow this project from announcement to completion.
Along Platte Street, Riverview at 1700 Platte feature a handsome brick and glass facade with a step-up in height to the north. Because of the river directly behind the building, the parking garage is accessed from the front along Platte Street but is fairly discrete with retail surrounding both sides of the access point.
The brick and glass facade continues around the building to the north, which currently faces a surface parking lot.
Because this building faces the river, the back of the building has an opportunity to feature a second “front” elevation. This side features an all glass facade, a tenant courtyard on level two, and a nice activated sidewalk which continues on from the activated space at Galvanize. A tight public alley sits between both Riverview and Galvanize.
Let’s wrap up with a few photos from the other side of the South Platte River.
Riverview at 1700 Platte greatly contributes to the well established street-wall along Platte Street, and fits in perfectly with the mix of modern and historic context of the corridor. Welcome to Downtown Denver, Riverview at 1700 Platte!
