DENVER | Six Fifty 17 | 305m | 1000ft | 90 fl | Pro

A New York architecture firm hints at a plan for Denver’s new tallest building



Quote:
A New York-based architecture and consulting firm boasted on its website Tuesday that it would be working on a staggering new structure in downtown Denver, before later removing the project and declining to comment.
Crown Architecture and Consulting claimed it was tapped to design a building slated for 650 17th St. The structure would include a hotel as well as 300 condos, the firm said on its website and in a portfolio presentation released earlier this month.

Crown Architecture Principal Michael Santora said in an email to Denverite on Tuesday that the firm is “not discussing details of the project at this time.” Later, the project was removed from the firm’s website. It’s unclear why.
“Unbalanced construction defect laws have prevented much needed development of condominium properties for several years,” the site stated. “Now on the brink of reform, Crown was tapped to lead what will be Denver’s tallest building as executive architect and development manager.”
Neither the site nor the portfolio stated how tall the building would be. Republic Plaza, 370 17th St., is currently Denver’s tallest building at 714 feet and 56 stories.
The site and portfolio did state the 800,000-square foot tower would contain ground level retail, a boutique luxury hotel, three restaurants, more than 700 parking spaces, and 300 condos.
Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law Tuesday a compromise on construction defects reform that advocates hope will bring more condos to the market. It’s generally been billed as something that would increase the supply of housing affordable to middle-class buyers.
“Crown has devised a zoning strategy that is in the process of being approved to increase the maximum floor area ratio by 35 percent,” according to the firm.

Hope it happens. For a city of its growth and prosperity, it has one of the least-changed skylines since the 80's.

90 stories per the link above. The design is ugly and that blue cladding looks tacky. That said, a supertall is a supertall, so I don't know how to feel.

Denver’s Skyline Could Reach 1,000 Feet

Quote:
Denver’s skyline could reach 1,000 feet high over the Mile High mark when construction a new skyscraper is completed.
Plans are moving forward for a new skyscraper that would forever change the skyline of Denver. Developers say they hope to break ground on a roughly 1,000 foot tower next year. It would be the tallest building in Colorado by more than 280 feet.
Developer Michael Ursini of Greenwich Realty Capital based in New York City, has been working on this concept for many months. He says GRC hopes the building will take shape by next fall.
The tower will be located at 650 17th Street, and for now that’s the working name of the building. In fact, more information is available on the website, sixfifty17.com. The site between Welton and California Streets is currently a parking lot.
Ursini says it’s hard to say exactly how many stories the building will be, due to double floor heights, amenity decks, retail space and penthouses. He says it will be in the mid-90-story range, if counted as traditional floors.
Greenwich Realty Capital plans 248 luxury condominium residences, probably a boutique hotel, 22,000 square feet of retail space and more than 500 parking spaces. Altogether, it will have about 1 million square feet of space.
Promotion materials say building residents will enjoy “not only the most breathtaking views available in Denver, but also an unprecedented collection of amenities, including multiple terraces and pools, a spa with sauna and steam rooms, and a fitness center. In addition, sporting amenities include a half-court basketball court, a bowling alley, and a game lounge with a pool table, foosball, and shuffle board.”
Carlos Ott, a Canadian-based architect is designing the building. Denver-based Davis Partnership Architects will be the architect of record.
The developer says there’s a good reason for the unique shape.
“It’s progressive and designed to go along with how the city is being built,” Ursini says, like the other new skyscrapers in Denver. “We wanted to have a really iconic structure and we think we nailed it with this design. ”
Andrea Burns, spokesperson for Denver’s Department of Community Planning and Development, says the city spoke with the project team late last year but has not received any site plans yet.
For now, Denver’s tallest building is Republic Plaza at 714 feet. A tower 1000 feet tall would be the 19th tallest building in the U.S.

And I'm sorry but that render has palm trees...in Colorado. Did the architect know he was designing for Denver? This would be considered ugly even if Sunny Isles Beach. A massive, massive downgrade aesthetically.

Hopefully the U.S. soon overcomes the mass epidemic of overrated Uruguayan starchitects (looking at you Rafael Viñoly).

These are preliminary renderings ,the design might change as the development moves forward.

I would prefer the other rendering per this possible new one.. it is dreadful...I have no idea what is so great about cantilevered "anything" especially in this case, a pool.. for a skyscraper in winterized Denver..

I think the render is just poor quality which makes the cladding look cheap and tacky. I fully expect this to turn out well.

90-story tower in Denver would be city's first supertall

Quote:
Before it can be built Six Fifty 17 will have to clear the city’s approval process. While Greenwich co-founder and managing partner Michael Ursini told the Denver Post that the project is “100 percent going forward” at a price tag of around $400 million, there are no formal site plans currently under review by the city.
The building is being designed by Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott, most famous for his design of the Opera de la Bastille in Paris. According to its website, Six Fifty 17’s design will take advantage of “breathtaking views” and offer “unprecedented amenities.” Plans include multiple terraces and pools, a spa, fitness center, a basketball court, bowling alley, and children’s climbing gym.
