Colorado Center is a premier, 13-acre ofﬁce/retail/entertainment/residential complex. It is located between downtown Denver, Colo., and the Denver Tech Center, and adjacent to Interstate 25. The transit-oriented development is adjacent to FasTracks light-rail and bus lines, providing convenient access to downtown as well as the Tech Center. In addition to providing access to CarShare locations, a new pedestrian/bike overpass connects the site to the neighborhood across the interstate, and is complemented by shower facilities and a bike storage and repair facility.
Master-planned by Tryba Architects in 2007 prior to the recession, the development now features three ofﬁce towers (including the new Tower III) totaling 500,000 ft2, residential apartments, and 767 structured parking spaces.
The design vision for the mixed-use development also included the creation of an open-air shopping strip with pedestrian walkways connecting the various structures. This 24-hour “Main Street” is comprised of high-quality restaurant and retail uses. It now includes a 120,000-ft2 entertainment center with a United Artists movie/IMAX theater and a Dave & Buster’s. There has been a huge investment in the site development concept and design.
