The Most Interesting Projects in Denver … According to Developers

The Most Interesting Projects in Denver … According to Developers

On In Industry News

The Clutch crew is ringing in this next decade with a celebration of Denver design: projects that are new, innovative, interesting, compelling or generally making waves in the architecture and design community. 

To curate our list, we referred to four of Denver’s top developers—key figures who are shaping our built environment and thus our community:

The question: What’s the most interesting project in the Denver area, that’s not yours (or ours)? We also asked that projects be newly opened or under construction. Scroll down for their selections.


From Paul TamburelloOwner/Broker of Generator Real Estate, LLC

Project: SugarSquare
Developer: Urban Villages, Inc.
Architect: Semple Brown
Builder: Jordy Construction

“I think 1544 Wazee Street is easily one of the finest buildings built in LoDo in years. It was designed by Semple Brown Architecture and it seamlessly fits into the historic character of LoDo while not mimicking or trying to be faux historic. The materials and use of glass and steel are amazing.”

From Ashley StilesCEO and Founder of Tribe Development

Project: The Ramble Hotel
Developer: Gravitas Development Group
Architect: Johnson Nathan Strohe
Interior Designer: Avenue Interior Design
Builder: Sprung Construction

“RiNo is great need of hotel rooms that offer an elevated, curated design experience. The Ramble delivers. The lobby is also a great spot for happy hour or meetings.”

From Matt JoblonChief Executive Officer of BMC Investments:

Project: 260 N. Josephine
Developer: Elevation Development
Architect: Open Studio
Builder: GE Johnson

“I understand the challenge and complexity of the zoning on the south side of 3rd street in Cherry Creek with the solar bulk plane. It is even more difficult to deal with when you are developing office space, which requires you to max-out the floor plates. I think the developer and architect did an incredible job creating an interesting building that brought a more modern look to Cherry Creek. The deconstruction of the building—how they broke it up architecturally was executed on a very high level that I appreciate. I believe that building will stand the test of time and be a great asset from a design standard for Cherry Creek.”

From Andrew KatzPrincipal of Katz Development:

Project: McGregor Square
Developer: Dick Monfort
Architect: Stantec
Builder: Hensel Phelps

“I’m probably most excited about McGregor Square in LoDo next to Coors Field. I think the project is very focused on shaping public space in an area that sees a lot of foot traffic. The buildings themselves look great and interesting, but I’m most excited about the attention being given to creating a pedestrian-friendly environment and gathering place in such an important urban site.”
