Downtown Denver’s 1401 Lawrence Office Tower Tops Out

  • Apr 13, 2016

Yesterday a crane placed the final steel beam on the 1401 Lawrence office tower in downtown Denver signifying the project had reached its maximum height. The 22-story tower is part of Denver’s central business district and is located in the heart of downtown, at the entrance to the CBD and LoDo, with immediate proximity to Denver’s outstanding amenity base.

The Beck-designed and Beck-built building allows easy access by car as well as pedestrian access to light rail and the 16th Street mall shuttle. The project integrates the historic fabric of Denver’s LoDo with a cutting-edge tower design. The building has 14 stories of leasable office space sitting atop an 8-story parking podium including ground floor retail. Twenty-six thousand cubic yards of concrete went into the structure of the building, along with 2,800 tons of rebar and 65,000 pounds of post tensioning.

The building location and amenities are appealing to millennials who are more and more making Denver their home. “The Mile High City has been ranked among the 10 U.S. cities where millennials make up the largest percentage of the total population,” says Doug Spuler, Managing Principal at Beck’s Denver office. “Projects like 1401 Lawrence and the amenities that surround the project are attractive to this group and serve as a catalyst to attract other companies to the City.”

Completion of the project is slated for August 2016.
