However, this building is essentially on the edge of downtown (extending it's skyline) and on the opposite end of downtown from Denver's four tallest buildings. In other words, this final size may actually look about right for it's location. All around this building is a sea of 30-40-story buildings of which this one will rise above all.
Sure, a little taller version would have been nice, but their budget was $350 million and rising construction costs meant they could only go 45-stories. Which means this is one pimped out structure! The Spire being built in Denver - on the other hand - is 41-stories but only will cost $175 million to build.
This 45-story Four Seasons will be the most expensive private building ever built in Denver. One of the two penthouses just sold for $10 million dollars. In fact, here's the article:

One of the two penthouses at the Four Seasons Private Residences Denver sold for $10 million.
The 6,100-square-foot condo has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a loft and two balconies.
A third of the of the 102 condos have sold, with Colorado residents buying the majority of them. More than three-quarters of the buyers are 40 to 60 years old.
The project's developer, 1111 Tower LLC, will break ground on the 45-story Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences this fall. The building, at the corner of 14th and Arapahoe streets, will include 230 hotel rooms.
