Back in June, we were pleased to share that one of Downtown Denver’s worst surface parking lots was eradicated to make way for the 30-story, all glass, Block 162 office tower. While clearing off a surface parking lot is a great start to any project, it is always great to see drilling, excavation, and other construction activities.

When we stopped by the site last weekend, there was just that; excavation, drilling, and utility work is now taking place on the site. Since there are three levels of underground parking to dig out, excavation will take place for a while longer.

Once excavation is complete, we should expect to see a tower crane or two go up which is when we will stop back for a visit.
