DENVER | Two Tabor Center | 420 FT | 31 FLOORS

Two Tabor Center is proposed by the new owner called, Callahan Capital Partners. They purchased the One Tabor Center (built in 1985) which includes the already constructed foundation for Tabor Two. After two decades of a foundation waiting for a building the Denver market has now become one of the more diversified, highest demand and most vibrant markets in the country. Some reports have class A office vacancy rates under 5% in Denver's CBD. The demand is high and this location is in the middle of everything.

Two Tabor Center:
Tabor I was built in the late 1980's and the foundation for "Two Tabor Center" was also poured. Now, finally a building is going to be built on that foundation! ***Visit This Projects Website, Click Here!***
BUILDING FACTS:
Class: “AA”
Building Size: up to 820,000 SF
Typical Floor Plate: 20,000
No. of Floors: 40 stories (Minimum 514'+ tall)
Completion Date: 2010 (2008 Start Date)
Architect: Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates
Parking: 1/1000
LEED Certified

That's pretty cool - so, if I read correctly, they built a foundation in anticipation of favorable market conditions, but have stalled vertical construction until now? Interesting. The building looks pretty nice.

This one gets a thumbs up.

I can't make out any of the numbers in the elevation diagram. Is this one over 500'?

I reduced the size of the diagrams, so they would be more friendly on this forum's web server...

It says the structural top elevation is 716' -- however, 202' is the ground level elevation. The existing foundation I believe sits on top of a 1,500 subterranean parking structure and they are including that in the structures overall height.

SO YES, it will be 514' tall above ground level if built as proposed.


P.S.
The shadow building is the existing One Tabor Center built in 1985.

Glad they didn't copy the very 80's Tabor one style.

Glad to see this one finally happen. I remember back in 1999 Matt and all the Denver folks hoping that tower would be built. Well, better late than never.

Denverskyscrapers.com may have it. I know Matt had the original design posted there.

Here's the page of unbuilt towers in Denver at denverskyscrapers.com. Two Tabor Center's original design, and a revised design from 1999 are also listed.

I believe the foundation has a temporary structure over it. It's not just a foundation exposed to the elements that I can show you a picture of.

Awesome. I didn't think Denver knew what glass was! It still, apparently, doesn't know what a spire is, though!

Nope...

And I wouldn't get too head over heals on all these Denver projects. With the real estate market looking shaky, some of these proposals may fall through (some probably will). Only time will tell, it all depends on the market. I'm more into what Denver is doing with mass-transit. That's what got my attention focused on Denver, was their massive investments in transportation.

Being a skyscraper fan too, I naturally began looking into all these proposals Denver has. They have some promising stuff, seemingly about to go up. Still need to see more of those cranes, before I'll believe it though!

You mean that giant stick that's stuck on top of the FT? If that's NYC's idea of a spire...

Thanks for the post and the information Snyderboc! So true that we need to be cautious with our expectations that all of these new developments will be built. I am a native and have seen so many plans never come to fruition. But it is nice to at least have all of the plans in circulation and consideration!

Lightbulb

It's also encouraging that the Hotel, Residential and Commercial markets in downtown Denver are all "booming" simultaneously. No doubt, some of these proposals are going up. They can even further reduce risk -- in what has recently been called a "low risk market" -- by making these projects mix-use. The likelihood of all three building use booms downtown to end at the same time, is not likely.

Furthermore, such projects as Union Station and FasTracks and recent openings of the southeast light rail line are going to give this downtown economy a shot in the arm - thus making a recession even less likely.

I give all of Denver's major construction proposals a high probability of being built. I also rate a high probability of future proposals also being built. Denver's economy seems to be in a real good situation right now.

The Black Sheep: High rate of foreclosures in the Denver area... This may, or may not be significant in the long run. Definitely something to watch.

Nice solid tower to add density to downtown. Will make a great background building.

It would also be the tallest building in this corner of downtown - meaning it will rise above the other nearby buildings. So it's not bad at all.

Should bulk up the skyline nicely, especially in that area.

Excellent job WonderLandPark! That's a view (angle) of downtown Denver that I rarely see. Nice job!
