Construction has wrapped up at the Buell Public Media Center in Arapahoe Square. This new 63,500 square foot facility will include a black-box broadcast studio, a live-performance broadcast studio, a production studio, a children’s learning and programming center, classrooms, volunteer offices and conference rooms, a community kitchen and event space, a cafe with outdoor seating, and a private courtyard.
In addition, the second floor will house the Rocky Mountain PBS and KUVO offices, an additional studio, a lounge, and the digital infrastructure for distributing media content statewide. The third floor will contain space that can be leased out to local media enterprises.
In terms of the construction logistics, Mortenson Construction was the builder with Tryba Architects behind the design.
Now, let’s get to some photos. The Buell Public Media Center has a small but nice presence along 21st Street. Between the wide, landscaped sidewalk, and the glass corner, this makes for a pleasant pedestrian experience.
