1/17/14 - Two major downtown projects are moving forward after several years on hold due to the great recession.

The first project is Two Tabor Center at 17th and Larimer Streets. This project has had a long history, first being proposed with the overall Tabor Center project in 1985. The initial proposal died during the late 1980's energy bust. The project resurfaced in the late 1990's, but again died during the 2001 national economic downturn. After the current owners of the property, Callahan Capital Partners, purchased the development in the mid-2000's, they again proposed to develop the tower. Again, the project died in 2008 due to yet another economic downturn. But, the project is now back again. This time, the tower is proposed to be 31 stories and 420 feet in height, with 700,000 square feet of office space. The tower has been designed to reflect a crystalline shape to reflect Colorado's geology and geography. The architect is Davis Partnership of Denver in conjunction with the Epstein Group of Chicago. The tower is now being marketed and may break ground in late 2014 or early 2015. Here are some elevation renderings and a close up of the buildings roofline:

The second project is the 999 17th Street mixed-use development. Shea Properties originally proposed an office, hotel and condominium project for the site in 2007. But, as with Two Tabor, the 2008 recession postponed development of the project. It is now back and proposed to include a 28 story, 360 unit apartment tower and a 9 story office building linked together by a 6 story parking structure. 20,000 square feet of retail would also be part of the project. A construction schedule has not yet been announced, however, the project is currently being reviewed by the City of Denver. The architect is Davis Partnership of Denver.
