Downtown Denver is undergoing a $1.3 billion building boom, shows a map released on Monday.

In addition, about another $800 million in projects are on the drawing board.

If the apartment, office, hotel and retail projects under construction were stacked on to each other, it would be the equivalent of a 401-story tower.

To put that in perspective, the tallest office building in Colorado, Republic Plaza, has 56 stories.

The Downtown Denver Partnership released a Downtown Denver Development Map that shows projects under construction or planned, as of April.

The $1.27 billion under construction includes:

  • 4,210 residential units, mostly apartments;
  • 1,741 hotel rooms;
  • Almost 2.4 million square feet of office space;
  • And nearly 230,000 square feet of retail space.

Development trends remain consistent with previous updates.

For example, more than half of the development of residential units are occurring around Union Station.

“There is more than $2 billion of investment currently planned or under construction in downtown Denver, signaling noteworthy progress towards our vision of a prosperous city that attracts jobs, growth and investment,” said Tami Door, president and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership.

“Projects around Denver’s Union Station, particularly residential developments, are moving forward at a faster pace than many had envisioned as developers recognize that building adjacent to this important multi-modal transportation hub is a smart investment,” Door added.

The map is intended as a resource for developers, investors and brokers interested in Downtown Denver.
