From the architect. RNL designed this 22-story office tower in downtown Denver at 18th & Larimer Streets. It is the first high-rise office building to be built in Denver’s Central Business District (CBD) in more than 25 years. The building offers state of the art class AA lease office space. This project is sustainably designed and is certified LEED-CS Platinum. Featuring high 9’6” ceilings with nearly full height glass and large 24,500 sf floor plates, it is a very attractive draw for Denver businesses.

The building features a large landscaped roof garden that is accessed from the 2nd floor level along with a health club and other amenities. It sits atop the parking garage which accommodates 413 vehicles on both above and below grade levels. The building lobby includes a café with seating area, a major art wall and a bank with dedicated parking located in the Level 1 garage.

The building sets back from 18th Street to form a plaza on both 18th and Larimer Streets with landscape elements that flow through the tall, structural glass glazed lobby. 1800 Larimer is the new Regional Headquarters for Xcel Energy. RNL also provided the interior design for this LEED Platinum tenant space.

I expect way more out of RNL. I agree with the James. It looks like it is straight out of the 80s, and is yet another rectilinear building on the skyline of Denver.

I disagree. Love the roof, love the windows, especially when they reflect clouds. Haven't even been in the lobby yet, so was glad to see that. Also dig the Ooms photography! Denver's Philips Johnson building was nicknamed the Cash Register building, so I would like to go on record and nickname this the Tetris building!

This building is an eyesore on Denver skyline. Its less than a year old, but already looks outdated. RNL does some good work, but this is just bad and I have to see it everyday. I do like the lobby though.
