Block 176

The project is projected to consist of two high-rise towers expanding to 39- and 32-stories tall and connected by an 8-story podium. Included will be ground-floor retail spaces as well as underground parking. The block is endearingly currently known as “Denver’s worst parking lot” by Denver Infill. According to Denver Infill, “Surface parking covers most of Block 176 except for Shelby’s Bar & Grill, an unpretentious local pub housed in a one-story 1,946 SF structure built in 1906 (formerly a mortuary), and the vacant shell of an old bank drive-thru facility. In other words, the entire block represents a massive underutilization of prime Downtown real estate. The new Downtown Area Plan identifies this block as an “Opportunity Site” that, upon redevelopment, could help catalyze additional investment in the area.”
