Situated in the Cherry Creek North neighborhood, OSA worked with our client to renovate the city block between 1st and 2nd Avenue, between Milwaukee and St Paul street. The project, split into two phases, consisted of a re-clad of the existing 8 story brick office building along 1st Avenue to create a contemporary presence on the arterial and a remodel of the existing 3 story parking garage with an added retail wrap along the perimeter as a response to the added pedestrian activity driven by all the new development on the adjacent city blocks. Along with these renovations, the alley between the two buildings, previously under-utilized as a loading zone, was transformed into a pedestrian promenade through the use of brick pavers, enhanced lighting, and a redesigned entry into the office building and ground level bank.
Some of the challenges on the project included re-glazing and re-cladding a fully occupied office building while it continued with day to day operations, removing a 15,000 sf precast slab within an operational parking garage and infilling a new structural slab to connect the retail space along 2nd avenue to the exterior sidewalk. The project architects worked closely with the contractor, ownership, and building management teams to ensure the project was completed safely, on schedule, and under budget.
