Downtown Denver’s most reflective skyscraper is looking more complete every day. 1144 Fifteenth, standing over 600 feet tall, is now starting to take shape and is beginning to answer a lot of questions about the final product. Most of the facade is now up adding a really large splash of glass to the skyline; as you can see in the cover photo, and panorama below.
Not only does it have a very unique roofline, more on that later, it also takes many different forms on the skyline, depending where you are around the city. From the southwest, specifically the Auraria Campus, the building has a wide presence but the curved roof and rounded edges relieve some of the wideness.
As we mentioned above, when moving around the city, 1144 Fifteenth takes different shapes. From Diamond Hill in Jefferson Park, the tower is much slimmer but the curved roofline is less apparent.
Here are a couple more detailed shots of the two angles we compared above.
As you move around Downtown Denver, towards the north, the design of the building keeps changing and a sharper, steeper roofline unfolds.
To wrap up, here are two photos detailing the unique, and very welcomed roofline.
By the end of next month, the tower crane for 1144 Fifteenth should be taken down. This will give us an even better idea of what the completed building will look like.
