Denver, Colorado/308,000 square feet
BOKA Powell was chosen to work with Denver-based SempleBrown to craft a 12-story mixed-use tower in the Union Station area of downtown Denver. The transit-oriented development directly connects with the Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) light rail system via an iconic arc-shaped platform designed by SOM. A 200-key full-service luxury hotel includes two restaurants, Citizen Rail and Tavernetta. Ballroom space on the second level and a board room accommodate meetings and events. Balconies on level two overlook Union Station and 16th Street. A fitness center and hospitality suite are located on level three. Guestrooms occupy levels 3 through 12. A boutique five-level office building rises next to the Hotel Born connected via a sky bridge on the third floor, with balconies overlooking Union Station. The entire mixed-use block sits atop two levels of below-grade structured parking to support each use. Hotel Born has been awarded the AAA Four Diamond Rating. The project achieved USGBC LEED Silver certification.
