“Architecture is the triumph of human imagination over materials, methods, and men.” — Frank Lloyd Wright
The combination of exceptional design and premium quality always emanates a certain sense of luster that’s hard to deny and easy to appreciate. In 2018, 50 Fifty, a new 185,000-square-foot office building, joined the Denver Tech Center skyline hoping to establish itself as a premier property among the area’s abundant competition. Conceived as a 12-story office property about a block from Interstate 25 and Belleview, the building’s name is a clever double entendre. The street address also eludes to the functional dichotomy of six stories of parking capped by six floors of Class AAA office space skinned in an unusual mixture of shimmering glass and speckled granite. Two additional levels of parking reside below grade; city/ mountain views and plentiful access to daylight are accentuated across more than just four faces of 50 Fifty.
