I do not see this Denver highrise currently listed in the SP database. If possible, could it please be added, as it is over 115ft/35M in height and is listed as a historic building in Denver. Below is info....

This structure is just about 125' in total height when measured by Google Earth Pro.

Please list this historic Denver structure as a highrise as it is entered into the SP database.

Thanks

Per the Colorado Historical Society, this top of the roof of this building is at 132 feet high, It once and a colorful mast that added 80 feet more to this highrise, but the mast is long gone. So 132 feet high would be the height of this building.

Thanks

for antoun

Whether the height is 125' per Google Earth Pro, or 132' per the Colorado Historical Society, this historic structure surpasses the 115' threshold and is considered a highrise.

Thanks
