Not a lot has changed with Denver’s newest skyscraper-in-the-making, 1144 Fifteenth, since we last visited it in October however, some important questions and curiosities are starting to get answered about the final product. In this short update, we are going to finally address the exterior lighting on the building.
It has been known for a while now that the crown of 1144 Fifteenth will not be completely lit up due to the close proximity of the Four Seasons tower. However, there is still an exterior lighting plan which is now underway. Two strips of white lighting will span from the first office floor, on floor 13, to the top floor on the narrow sides of the tower. It is still unknown if the strip lighting will wrap around the crown as well. Here are two photos showing the white strips on the west facing side. The strips are a little hard to spot because of the construction lighting but they will be much easier to see once the project is complete.
As a fun little bonus, here are two images taken exactly a year apart (November 2, 2016 – November 2, 2017). What a difference one building can make!
The next milestone for 1144 Fifteenth is this week as the tower crane will start coming down. The process should begin Wednesday and it will take a couple of days to fully dismantle the crane.
