If you're into Denver Commercial RE growth then DBJ/CBRE has the 2017 review.

For the healthy water drinkers among us, you might enjoy this CBS4 video/report of this $100 million storage project.

Don't forget this massive $500 million 5-year project for Denver Water which is currently in progress...you can see the huge 7' pipes out by Applewood along the west side of I-70 if you drive out that way to the mountains.

Denver Water is upgrading and modernizing the northern portion of our water system. We are building a new water treatment plant, installing a new pipeline and redeveloping our Moffat Treatment Plant site. When finished, the system will be more resilient and adaptable to changing demands for water now and into the future.

Ahh the good ole water issue, I remember sometime back around 2009-2011 the Denver Water Board and several front range water boards where trying to come to an agreement on a huge plan that would have rivaled FasTracks in cost (est around 8 billion!). Since a lot of water rights were sold off to downstream interests the so-called Big Straw was just briefly mentioned in the Post-it would have included twin pipelines to the Missouri River just south of Omaha and the other to the Mississippi River just south of St Louis and would have included pumping stations and water plants in central Nebraska and Kansas plus a yuge plant where both pipelines would meet near Bennett east of DIA. Denver Water and the others never came to an agreement on this..

Thanks guys! I took a look at the 3D future skyline maps we create for DenverInfill and Block 162 will not have a ton of impact on the skyline from this angle. The Hyatt covers a good chunk of it. However, there will be some glass protruding from the right of the Hyatt but it will be the same height as the Hyatt.

At least it will block the blank wall of Dominion Plaza...

I love how our glassy 1144 Fifteenth Street appears to be a shard of glass in the skyline, even in the haziest of conditions...

I think that 1144 sets the stage for a modern wave group of high-rise skyscrapers downtown. For example, the design for 650 17th would look, in my opinion, less out of place because of 1144.

It’s nice to see the lower downtown side of the skyline start to balance with the uptown side. Since the early 1980’s the skyline has been so very concentrated around 17th Avenue and Broadway. If and when Tabor 2 ever gets built it will further create a balance. 650 17th near the center of it all would finally give Denver an impressive skyline.

Got a question-is that self storage building 6 floors that's near where the Park Avenue and Walnut Street viaduct meet? I noticed it in the background pic on Denverinfill on the latest pic looking north from in back of Union Station-the building actually looks good and has brick.

This is my first time seeing it, but the night lighting on the confluence is up the entire side of the building!
* edit - they are off now.... maybe they were testing them?
