The new facility, to be constructed in phases, will be situated between 11th Street and Speer Boulevard just south of the Science Building and across from the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Here’s a Google Earth aerial image with the approximate location of the project site outlined.
Phase 1 consists of a four-story, 60,000 square foot facility situated fronting Speer Boulevard. The University is launching a fundraising effort to support the construction of the first phase with the balance of funding anticipated from the State of Colorado. The General Assembly will approve the funding (or not) during the current legislative session.
A future phase (or phases) would add two wings totaling an additional 135,000 square feet of space stretching behind the Phase 1 building towards 11th Street.
Below are two renderings showing the project after Phase 1 and after full-buildout, along with an evening view of the project at full build-out. The renderings are courtesy of ZGF, the firm hired to do the design. Additional interior renderings are available on the ZGF website here.
