The $100 million mixed-use Union Tower West has opened in downtown Denver in the city’s Union Station neighborhood. Atlanta-based John Portman & Associates designed the LEED-certified building with design director Gordon Beckman serving as the principal architect on the project, while Brooklyn-based designer Mark Zeff spearheaded the interiors. In addition to 100,000 square feet of office space, the property is also home to the 180-room Hotel Indigo Denver Downtown.
The multifaceted façade is made of transparent glass, perforated metal screening, and floor-to-ceiling glazing. Inside, an original art installation from locally based sculptor Norman Epp serves as the focal point of the lobby, depicting a black cherry tree with steel elements. The hotel boasts 1,188 square feet of meeting and event space across three rooms—the Green Room, Russell Room, and the Hickenlooper Boardroom—that accommodates up to 200 guests.
Guestrooms feature hardwood floors, polished concrete ceilings, interior sliding barn doors, oversize beds and desks, spa-inspired showers, and murals that capture Denver, the Rocky Mountains, and the Front Range of Colorado. The hotel is also home to a 24-hour fitness center and a dining concept from Zeff.
