The reinforced concrete structure rises from a three-story podium. The base includes retail shops, a lobby lounge and bar, signature restaurant and more than 16,000 sq ft of meeting space, including a 5,000-sq-ft grand ballroom.
A full-service spa with a 2,354-sq-ft fitness center and a pool occupy the third floor. Below street level, two floors accommodate 249 parking spaces, as well as the engineering, mechanical and electrical rooms. The lower 16-floor portion of the building houses the hotel, while the remaining upper floors accommodate the private residences with one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floor plans.
The exterior fa�ade features a simple palette of precast concrete, metal panel, structural glazing and operable windows. On the upper floors, balconies for each of the private residences shape the glowing silhouette. The tiered crown of the building tops out at 565 ft, with a spire-like antenna extending above that for a structural height of 641 ft.
Designed by Bilkey Llinas Design of West Palm Beach, Fla., the hotel boasts a sleek interior with stone-and-wood accents set against an earthtone palette. Guest rooms feature high-end finishes, including underlit glass sinks, glass-walled rain showers, and in some suites, a freestanding tub in front of a picture window.
In each private residence, 400-sq-ft balconies and wall-to-wall windows capitalize on mountain or city views. Three design schemes by Atlanta-based Clausen-Chewning Interior Design reflect the contemporary colors, patterns and textures of the Colorado landscape.
In addition to residents-only amenities such as a private fitness center on the 17th floor, residents have access to all the hotel amenities and services, including 24-hour room service, housekeeping, nightly bed turndown and in-residence spa treatments.
The asking price for the smallest of the residences�a 997-sq-ft, one-bedroom unit�starts at $895,000. One of the two penthouses�a 6,100-sq-ft, two-level, four-bedroom unit with mountain views�sold for $10 million. The second penthouse�a 5,600-sq-ft, two-level, three-bedroom unit with city views�sold for $7.9 million.
Sales of the private residences have been slower than originally projected, with only 52 of 102 residences under contract as of June.
�We had hoped to be 70% sold out before construction wraps up in August, but the market is quiet,� Norton says. �We fully expect sales to accelerate once the hotel is open and people can tour the property.�
