Parq on Speer Update #5

Parq on Speer is a 16-story apartment tower going up at the corner of Speer Boulevard and Bannock Street in Downtown Denver’s Golden Triangle district. Ryan stopped by in June when the tower was about two-thirds of the way up. Since then, Parq on Speer has topped off and brick and glass are now being installed on the exterior facade.

We have a bunch of construction photos to share with you today, so let’s get to it!

The view of Parq on Speer from across Cherry Creek is pretty nice. Here is a sampling, going from north to south.

Once again going from north to south, here are views of Parq on Speer from the sidewalk along Speer Boulevard.

Closer up we can see the brick and glass facade facing the sidewalk along Speer. This is where the tower’s bicycle shop, business center, residential lobby, and leasing offices will go on the ground floor.

A short access driveway at Bannock and 9th Avenue leads to the tower’s porte-cochère. Right at the corner of Speer and Bannock is an 8,500 SF two-story restaurant space.

In this shot looking up Bannock Street is the tower’s vehicle entry to the underground parking level reserved for commercial uses, as well as three additional ground-floor restaurant/retail spaces totaling over 20,000 square feet.

We’ll conclude with two final images showing the tower’s east (Bannock) elevation as viewed from a block over on Acoma Street, and the tower’s north elevation looking south from 10th Avenue. A private drive along the north side of the property provides access to the above-grade parking levels for residents.

That’s it for this update. Parq on Speer is scheduled for completion in Summer 2019, so we’ll be back with at least another update or two before then.

    Like the South Platte, Cherry Creek still has a long ways to go before it’s look is anything approaching attractive. It’s neither fish nor fowl in its current state. Do we want it to look wild or tamed? There are numerous examples of either across America of many possibilities; trouble is for us, Cherry Creek only approximates solutions other cities have designed.

      What is it that you foresee as a solution for Cherry Creek?

        Look at some pictures of Cheonggyecheon in Seoul. It’s a perfect example of an urban creek that invites pedestrians.

    That is one massive, hulking beast. I live close by and uber past it on a regular basis. I’m having a hard time getting used to its presence.

    I love this, and the way this stretch of Speer now looks. Very urban, and connecting downtown to Cherry Creek.

    As impressed as I am by the building, I’m even more impressed by the shots along Speer with almost no traffic!
