Denver, like the rest of the nation’s grand cities, is undergoing a building boom of its own.

According to this developer, a 100 story building is in the works! Maybe this is it.

Great to see a tower of this magnitude to secure Denver on the map.

It’s also great to see Denver on Yimby.

I think the website is marketing the site. I would put its credibility at the same level as that of the “Hudson Spire” which was advertised in NYC before BIG designed The Sprial for that particular site.

seems this is for real. A legitimate proposal has been submitted to the city. Also, the rendering is featured on the developer’s website.
