16 Market Square Details
One of the first significant mixed-use buildings to emerge during the revitalization of Downtown Denver, this $58 million project remains a standout in the downtown landscape. Completed in mid 2000 and named Best New Office Development of the Year in 2001 by the NAIOP Commercial Real Estate Development Association and the Downtown Denver Partnership Best New Building award, this 350,000-square-foot, mixed-use building is home to restaurants, retail shops, office space and 23 luxury residential penthouses atop a three-level underground parking garage.
As the gateway to Denver’s historic Lower Downtown District, or LoDo, 16 Market Square’s brick facades setbacks were designed to reduce the scale of the 125’ 16th Street elevation to the lower historic buildings on the neighboring streets. 16 Markets expansive outdoor spaces set a new standard for office buildings and apartments in the neighborhood. Hartman Cox, the building architect, embedded rich features including deep set windows and distinctive arches, real lathe and plaster ceilings, concrete cornice pieces (some weighing as much as 20 tons), limestone soffits and a granite base at retail level.
One of LoDo’s most prestigious addresses, 16 Market Square houses 183,000 square feet of office space directly on Denver’s 16th Street Mall.
Every one of the 23 luxury penthouses was sold at record prices even before construction began.
