Year Complete


12-story high-rise Hilton Garden Inn with a full complement of amenities and underground parking. The project will rehabilitate the historic Hose Company No. One building as a signature restaurant. The location is a gateway into the Central Platte Valley and has strong visibility from I-25.


Inspiration for the project draws from the site’s past. It incorporates rhythm and movement from the former nearby rail yards. The hotel is composed of two masses: a “jewel box” all-glass element set against the backdrop of a larger, simpler mass. Together, they generate tension and equilibrium.

The jewel box is highly visible, translucent and is dramatically lit at night, while the more opaque, simpler mass is conceived to highlight both the rejuvenated historic building (Hose Company No. One) and the jewel box. The complete project ingeniously integrates a small historic structure and larger structure with the context of a highly zoned and quickly densifying part of Denver’s urban core.
