Riverview at 1700 Platte, a 243,000-square-foot, Class A office building, sits along the western edge of the South Platte River.
Owner Trammel Crow Company engaged Tryba Architects and Saunders to lead design and construction respectively to fill in one of the last remaining parcels of land available in one of the most desirable areas of Denver’s central core. The project is comprised of two wing buildings – the five-story North wing and the four-story South wing – connected by a central link structure. From the street, the western frontage pays tribute to the neighborhood’s historic past with a classic red brick façade and punched windows, with the link structure in glass. From the east, Riverview at 1700 Platte is unmistakable for the expansive glass curtain wall covering the entire eastern façade and offering incredible views of the Denver Skyline just across the river.
Built for multi-tenant occupancy, the property also includes two levels of below-grade parking, a fitness center and an elevated courtyard garden on the second floor. Designed to achieve a LEED Silver certification, offices will feature generous ceiling heights, direct access to daylight throughout, a rooftop patio and five riverside balconies to ensure users have ample opportunity to brighten everyday with fresh air.
Saunders also recently completed the BPX Energy, BP America Production Company, Denver Headquarters TI inside this building.
