Hines Celebrates Debut of Downtown Denver’s Newest Skyline Landmark
DENVER — On Wednesday, March 21, Global Developer Hines hosted a grand opening celebration, marking the debut of Denver’s fourth-tallest building – 1144 Fifteenth. The skyline landmark will be the corporate headquarters for several businesses, including Chipotle.
Special guests included Jon Pickard of Pickard Chilton, the architect of the 40-story tower, Hines Chairman Gerald Hines, top real estate brokers, tenants and key media representatives.
The building, which cost more than $300 million, is the first Class A office tower of this height to be completed in Denver in 30 years. Hines also developed Wells Fargo Center, known as the Cash Register Building, in 1983.
1144 Fifteenth sets a new standard for Denver’s Class A space, with its combination of world-class architecture and state-of-the-art amenity-rich office space, located between Arapahoe and Lawrence Streets in the heart of LoDo.
The LEED Gold Certified building has a 10 percent higher efficiency rating than comparable office buildings and includes 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for an abundance of natural light, a living room with collaborative workspace, a 5,000-square-foot fitness center with locker rooms and complimentary towel service, and even a bike shop.
Brief comments were made before the celebration before the celebration moved up to Club 37 Lounge for music, mixologists and mountain views.
“Tenants of the building, who are relocating here, are so thrilled to make this their new home,” said Mark Cover, Hines CEO, Southwest Region and Mexico/Central America. “We think this will be a great place for you to recruit and retain some of the best and brightest young people that come to Denver. We at Hines want to be a meaningful part of all the things that Denver aspires to be.”
