Ft. Morgan Middle School

Natural light fills the halls of this new middle school, which also serves as a community gathering space.

Designed by Wold Architects and Larson Incitti, this new middle school sits on a 20-acre site that includes a full-size sod football field, paved parking lot, and multi-lane parent drop-off/pick-up area. Natural light is used throughout the building and is supplemented with energy-saving LED lighting, which is also used for site lighting. Funded in part by a BEST grant, it replaced the 88-year-old middle school. In addition to a center for learning, the school serves as a gathering space for the community.

The project consists of two, five-story, Hilton branded hotels that are separated above ground but share back-of-house space and parking facilities located below grade on a 114,007 sq. ft. (2.617 acres) site.

Embassy Suites is a 172,716 sq. ft., full-service hotel with 203 all-suite guest rooms.  The room mix is 87 double queen suites, 67 king suites and 49 single king rooms.  The average room size is 500 sq. ft.  Other spaces include 7,200 sq. ft. of meeting space; a 6,700 sq. ft. ballroom; and a 5,700 sq. ft., three-meal restaurant.  There is an outdoor pool with sun deck and a fitness center.

Hilton Garden Inn is a 95,452 sq. ft., select-service hotel with 172 guest rooms including six suites.  The room mix is 94 double queen, 72 king and 6 king suites.  The average room size is 370 sq. ft.  Other spaces include 1,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, a business center and a three-meal restaurant with a grab-and-go café concept.

The project’s structural system is reinforced concrete columns supporting post-tension reinforced elevated concrete slabs.  Each hotel is served by a separate two-pipe water source heat pump loop with boilers and closed circuit cooling towers located on each roof.  The premium concrete superstructure allows for a significantly longer use as compared to wood frame construction (the majority of select service hotels are wood frame).

A two-story, 216,440 sq. ft. underground parking garage with approximately 479 spaces, including valet, serves both hotels as well as an adjacent office building by others.

9th & Colorado Redevelopment

The site is a 26-acre urban infill that is being developed by Continuum Partners and CIM Group. The property at 9th and Colorado Boulevard has been vacant since the medical center moved to the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora in 2008.

The initial scope includes the environmental abatement and complete demolition of 15 existing buildings totaling 1,985,800 sq. ft. and interior demolition of three buildings, which are anticipated to be re-purposed as a part of the redevelopment. Additional development will provide new utilities, roads, a two block underground parking structure and infrastructure to enable future development.

The development team has proposed a $419 million redevelopment that will include 900 to 1,100 units of apartments and for-sale housing, 250,000 sq. ft. of retail and 125,000 sq. ft. of office space. The plan calls for the creation of a highly walkable and bike friendly project, integrating open green space and pedestrian amenities. The redevelopment will include a horizontal and vertical mix of uses, including residential, office, retail, restaurant, hotel and public space. The retail component will focus on creating a mix of retailers and restaurants, which will include national, regional and local businesses.

The approximately $419 million redevelopment project will receive $47.9 million in tax-increment financing approved by the City of Denver and managed through the Denver Urban Renewal Authority.
