Make no mistake: this isn’t just another office building. 50fifty is a Class AAA, 12-story office tower with beautiful lines and dazzling features. It’s a visually stunning mix of inspired design coupled with the finest building materials.
Every material selected for the construction of 50fifty is considered with only quality and performance in mind. From the handpicked granite to local artwork adorning the hallways, there are no short cuts here, only design excellence.
The inspirational vision for 50fifty was, interestingly for a landlocked state, sailing. The desire was not to mimic to the look of a ship, but rather the feeling of being on deck and looking down at the hull as it cuts through the water.
The skin of 50fifty is an alluring interplay of textures and color that unfolds as your eyes move up from the solid parking garage screen, to the varying textures of Sierra White granite panels, meant to mimic the wake of water, and up the blue Viracon glass panels.
The look is elegant, sophisticated and will be an instant DTC icon.
Sustainable design and construction means that 50fifty will seek LEED Gold certification upon completion. Sophisticated mechanical systems and an abundance of natural light work in unison to create an extremely energy efficient building.
After a lengthy interview process with several of Denver’s finest residential builders, we’ve helped our Client select Cadre Builders as the GC for 247. We look forward to working with Cadre to fine-tune the design and break ground in 2018.
A productive consultant kickoff meeting has set the documentation and coordination process in motion for this Castle Rock Brewery. The brewery will undoubtedly become a hub for community gathering and great tasting brews.
The team visited the 50Fifty steel girder installation last week
Installation of the cantilevered steel girder has been completed! This is one of the more complicated sequencing events of the construction efforts at 50Fifty. With the coordinated efforts of our structural engineer and construction team, the erection was completed without any difficulties.
We are proceeding forward with schematic design on this private residence and expecting to break ground next summer. Contractor interviews just wrapped up, and we are excited to be adding them to the team soon.
All major basement slab on grade is complete. Our second luffing crane is up and operational, just in time for the precast erection which started this week. The site will undergo significant changes over the next four months as the structure rises from below grade 2 levels, to six levels above. Six levels of steel (office) construction will occur on top of the precast (garage) and is scheduled to start in September.
