Inside look at Hotel Teatro
March 22, 2016 at 4:04 pm 0
Hotel Teatro Denver Denver Urban Review was provided the opportunity to tour Denver's Hotel Teatro this week. The hotel stands at 1100 14th Street in downtown Denver. Originally built in 1911 as the Denver Tramway Building, the structure was converted into Hotel Teatro in 1997. The name of the hotel was inspired by the nearby Denver Performing Arts Complex that is also located on 14th Street. Teatro means theater in Italian. Hotel Teatro features 110 rooms and space for meetings and events. In 2014 Denver-based Oz Architecture renovated areas of the hotel with significant updates to the first floor. The two pillars of this update include The Nickel, a restaurant and bar that features new American cuisine, and The Study, a coffee bar/breakfast lounge with a fire place and abundant cozy seating. Below are two photos of The Nickel: The Nickel Hotel Teatro The Nickel Hotel Teatro "The Kitchen design concept is bringing a farm to table concept to it, while bringing a unique twist to the Nickel Restaurant; changing up the idea of bringing natural flavors to the guests' palette," explains Darcey Vertuca of Oz Architecture." The whole concept with the project is old with new; we wanted to highlight the old lead glass windows to bring in the light and feature the unique architecture." The name of The Nickel pays homage to the portion of the Tramway Building that was utilized to collect nickels from folks riding streetcars in Denver. "About twenty percent of the traffic coming to The Nickel are hotel guests and the rest is local traffic. We are right next to the theater here and are centrally located," said Hotel Teatro general manager David Coonan." The Study sees a lot more activity in the morning with hotel guests, so we have created that as our breakfast area, and what you see with The Nickel is a unique lunch and dinner experience."

The Colewood, a 49-unit apartment project is planned for 3860 Tennyson Street in northwest Denver. This development is slated to break ground this March with completion expected in the spring of 2017. {google_map} 3860 Tennyson Street, Denver, CO{/google_map} Riverpoint Partners is the developer and Crane Architecture designed The Colewood. The project will feature a ground-floor fitness center for residents and a rooftop amenity deck. Apartments on the upper floors will have views of the mountains and downtown Denver from attached patios. Below-grade parking has been designed into the project. Exterior finishes will be a combination of brick masonry and raw steel accents on the bottom two floors. The upper portion of the building will be clad in metal paneling. The Colewood will not feature retail space.

Architect Eric Bottenhorn of Crane Architecture explains the design of The Colewood.

“With the well-established fabric of the Tennyson corridor, it’s important for the building to appreciate its rich context.  To that end, we felt it important to establish a strong base, relating to the scale of adjacent buildings.  Above this base, we’ve stepped back at the upper levels, allowing the upper volume to read as a secondary form.  The material selections, window pattern, and hung balconies, relate to the historic context, while the transition details and the way in which the materials are assembled, allow Colewood to be of its time.  This should be a complimentary addition to an already vibrant streetscape,” said Bottenhorn.

Millennials are expected to be the primary demographic, but a variety of age groups are anticipated to call this development home.

Riverpoint Partners closed on the property in February of 2015.

The area of Tennyson Street between 38th Avenue and 46th Avenue has become a trendy area with several bars, restaurants and new multifamily developments taking shape in recent years.

The 203-unit Decatur Point apartment project in Denver’s Jefferson Park neighborhood at 27th Avenue and Decatur Street is also a River Point Partners and Crane Architecture designed development.
