December 7, 2015 3

This fall work began on upgrades to 1660 Lincoln Street in downtown Denver. This 30-story office tower was built in 1972. The exterior of the building has been changed from a light brown to a gray color. This exterior upgrade is now complete.

1660 Lincoln is not the only office tower in downtown Denver to have been upgraded in recent years. In 2014 Brookfield Properties completed a $58 million renovation to its 54-story 1801 California office building.

Brookfield Properties is also making upgrades to the concourse level at Republic Plaza, which is Denver’s tallest building. The concourse level at Republic Plaza has been home to a food court for the last 30 years, which has become outdated in recent years. The renovations will include a new conference center and a new fitness center. Also included will be a cafe and collaborative space. The Republic Plaza upgrades are slated to be completed in early 2016.

Below is a photo of 1660 while the exterior upgrade work was taking place in October.

    Wow great photographs. I am so excited about the changes there. 1660 is no longer, in my opinion, an eyesore and blends in well with the neighboring buildings. Thank you for the update.

    Nice to see this tower get brought out of the mundane earth tone colors that infiltrate downtown Denver, Well done guys.
