Union Tower West

Located in the Lower Downtown (Lo-Do) district of Denver, this mixed-use project helps activate the area around the historic Union Station and extends the concepts of connectivity, walkability and urbanism inherent in the overall master plan for Denver’s newest neighborhood, The Commons.

The project features a 180-key select-service hotel, approximately 100,000 sf (9,290 sm) of office space above the hotel, and a parking garage for 216 cars. The building interacts with the existing and planned urban context by creating a new public space at the visual termination of Wewatta and 18th Streets. This public space is defined as an urban loggia and serves as a pedestrian entry court to the project that also emphasizes a linkage to the recently constructed pedestrian crossing at the new multimodal station.

The building is being designed to achieve LEED Silver, if not Gold.
