The above photo looks down Chestnut Place towards the southwest. The structure that sits on the righthand side of the photo was utilized as self storage building and is slated for demolition to make way for the planned 12-story Hilton Garden Inn. The structure on the lefthand side of the photo is northeast side of the Elan Union Station apartment project where the new King Soopers will be located. The 13-story building in the middle of the picture is the Cadence Union Station apartments. The crane is with the 1601 Wewatta office project that recently topped off at 10-stories. 1601 Wewatta March 2015.

Denver's Millennium bridge is one of three pedestrian bridges that connects downtown Denver with the Highlands. The Millennium bridge allows RTD light rail vehicles to safely pass under the bridge while pedestrians stroll above. The Confluence luxury apartments March 2015. The Confluence, a 34-story luxury apartment building is under construction and if you are wondering where the name for this development came from, it is because this tower will rise adjacent to the confluence of the Platte River and Cherry Creek. This project will feature underground parking. Excavation work is underway, but a lot of work will take place before the above grade work begins. Triangle Building March 2015. The open space between the Triangle building and the Environmental Protection Agency building (pictured on the righthand side of the photo) is where a cycling station will be located. Currently construction materials are located in the space. This space is actually the right of way for Wewatta Street. A deal was made between the City of Denver and the Triangle Building's developer East West Partners where underground parking for the building would be constructed underneath the Wewatta Street right of way as long as the developer placed a bike station on top of it. This was important because of the unusual triangular shape of the property. Triangular lots do not lend themselves to being ideal for underground parking structures. Liberty Global recently announced it will be leasing the top three floors of the Triangle Building. 1401 Lawrence March 2015. Above grade work is taking place on the 22-story 1401 Lawrence office project.National law firm Polsinelli has signed a 15-year lease to become the signature tenant of the building. 1401 Lawrence will have an outdoor space located on the 9th floor for its tenants.The dual brand Hyatt House Hyatt Place hotel March 2015.

The dual brand Hyatt House/Hyatt Place hotel continues its vertical ascent at 14th Street and Glenarm.  At this point the structure stands at 15 floors and once completed will reach 21 stories. The building will house 346 hotel rooms.
The exterior paneling is now being installed and is a pale yellow color. At its current size, one can begin to feel the impact this structure will have on 14th Street. This project will help activate an otherwise quiet corner of downtown.  IMG_1199 IMG_1203 IMG_1204
