At the intersection of 15th and Stout Street sat an old abandoned fast food restaurant that destroyed the pedestrian experience on a street already riddled with parking lots and not-so-pedestrian-friendly buildings. But, over the past year, that intersection has dramatically changed, featuring a six-story hotel that is nearing completion.
Before we go take a look on the interior of the building, here is a recent shot of the exterior. On our next and final update of this project, we will go down to the street level and look at the building in more detail.
Thanks to Damon Balcerak of Martines Palmeiro Construction (MPC), I was able to get an exclusive inside look at the progress being made! Everything is starting to shape up from the flooring to the walls.
The rooms are even more complete with all of the essential furniture pieces in place. Room accessories and mattresses will start to get installed over the next couple of weeks.
The aLoft Hotel features a basement, which houses the main amenities and back of the house operations. Here are some pictures of the soon to be complete pool and fitness room. The common areas of the hotel will all share an industrial look, with exposed beams and pipes throughout the building.
Given the small plot of land the aLoft sits on, the main lobby has a surprisingly open feel to it. There will be a porte-cochère entrance, mid block on Stout Street, and another entrance along 15th Street. The lobby will also include a state of the art bar, which we will cover more in depth with our final update. Here it is under construction.
The aLoft Denver City Center has an expected opening date of November 20th. We will check back in around then for our final update. Stay tuned!
