The Populus, designed by Studio Gang principal Jeanne Gang and her team, will be situated at the corner of 14th and Colfax. The desired plan is to refresh downtown Denver’s landscape, most noticeably, Civic Center Park, our only National Historic Landmark. It should also revitalize surrounding neighborhoods where most of our historic buildings are situated such as the Colorado State Capitol, Denver City and County Building, Denver Public Library and Denver Art Museum.
Urban Villages, a private developer and responsible for hiring Studio Gang, are working in tandem with city planners to bring this creation to life. Rising 13 stories, Populus will become home to 40 micro-apartments, 250 hotel rooms, a rooftop bar and an array of dining and drinking venues.
