Situated within Denver, Colorado, the tallest skyscraper is set for completion in 2018. Spanning 603 feet and within close proximity to Larimer Square, 1144 Fifteenth will be one of the most sophisticated buildings in the region, with 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, providing ample views of the city, sufficient lighting and world-class design.

Designed by architects Pickard Chilton alongside developer Hines, the 671,101 square foot building will encompass a triple-height lobby, constructed out of stone, oak and glass, alongside several communal and corporate areas, such as a conference facility on the 14th floor and a private office facility on the 40th floor. With sustainability in mind, the $300 million tower will become a LEED-Gold space built for businesses and tenants to experience.

For visitors to the area, over 30 hotels and nearby restaurants are located near to the LoDo. The building will have strong infrastructural and transport links, and is situated just three minutes from the light rail and just under 40 minutes from Denver International Airport. A parking area for over a thousand vehicles is also planned within the mixed-use build, alongside a health and fitness facility for tenants, with a 24-7 security team on site, ideal for residents and businesses.

All 27 floors of office space will be open plan, with world-class technologies embedded within current designs. 18 elevators and an inbuilt air filtration system have also been implemented, providing a 10 percent higher energy efficiency rate, increasing workplace efficiency. Gates Corp and Optiv have recently signed separate leases to reside within the building, according to the Denver Business Journal, with many more expected to follow suit.

Paul Washington, Executive Director of the Denver Office of Economic Development stated to the Denver Post that “this will be the most iconic structure in Denver”, and has had a resolutely positive response from the public.
