1999 Broadway was completed in 1985 at the tail end of Denver's 1980s energy boom. A unique aspect of the building can be experienced and viewed at the pedestrian level where the Holy Ghost Church can be seen adjacent to the skyscraper creating a one of a kind composition.

Denver Urban Review has acquired two renderings of the planned office tower known as 1144 Fifteenth from Hines, the international development firm. The 40 story office tower will be the tallest office tower built in Denver since the energy boom of the 1980s. The tower will be located on 15th Street between Arapahoe and Lawrence. ​The planned office tower will be constructed adjacent to the Four Seasons Hotel and Residence with construction expected to begin in the spring of 2015. The building will include 640,000 square feet of office space, a 5,000 square foot fitness center, and ground floor retail. ​“We are very excited about introducing this new icon to the Denver skyline.  1144 Fifteenth will set a new standard for Denver’s high-rise office space and enhance our city’s urban experience. It has been nearly three decades since Denver has received an office tower of this size and scale.  We strongly believe that the quality and location of this building will be appealing to a wide range of tenants and ultimately, once finished, we feel this will be the premier asset in all of the Rocky Mountain west,” stated Hines Managing Director, Jay Despard. ​1144 Fifteenth will add to an already impressive Denver portfolio for Hines. 1515 Wynkoop and 1601 Wewatta, mixed-use office and retail buildings in LoDo; Wells Fargo Center, a 50-story office tower in Denver’s CBD; 4600 South Syracuse, a 13-story office building in the Denver Tech-Center; and a four-story office building in Broomfield have been developed by Hines. Denver Urban Review will continue to monitor the progress of this project and will report as new information becomes available.   {google_map}1144 Fourteenth Street, Denver, CO{/google_map}
