The Denver Community Planning & Development Department hasconfirmed to 9Newsthat Greenwich Realty Capital submitted a concept to the city last week for a structure at 17th and California streets currently occupied by a parking lot.
This map shows the location:
The concept submission describes a building with a hotel, residences and retail, along with twin residential and hotel lobbies in the first two levels and 780 parking spaces.
The filing was first reported in a tweet Saturday byRyan Warner, host and editor of Colorado Public Radio's "Colorado Matters" interview show.
I’ve learned this project has been formally submitted to @CityofDenver. It would be tallest in #Colorado. This is an early rendition.
As things stand now, the building at 650 17th St. would be called Six Fifty 17 and would have a 20-to-1 floor-to-area ratio (FAR).
The concept filings don't indicate the proposed structure's height. Republic Plaza is 714 feet high.
In a statement to 9News, Denver Community Planning & Development spokeswomanAndrea Burnssaid:
"The developer submitted a concept to the city on or about Feb 14. A concept is the very first step in the site plan review process. Typically, over several months a concept will evolve into a formal site plan, as city reviewers provide feedback to the developer about the various codes that must be applied. The city has not yet reviewed or approved any aspect of the project."
In last September's announcement, Greenwich Realty Capital said the then-90-story tower would be designed by Canada-based architect Carlos Ott.
“Denver is at an exciting moment in its history and we believe our development plan for 650 17th Street will help further catalyze the evolution of downtown while respecting the essential character of the city,” Michael Ursini, co-founder and managing partner of Greenwich Realty Capital, said in September.
The statement said that details of the project were "subject to change at any time."

"After deciding to move to Denver from NYC, my father and I decided to spend our vacation in Denver back in August, for the purpose of beginning the search for a new home. My father and I contacted Marc, and he made what we thought would be a long, drawn out process seem relatively easy. Before we knew it, my father and I owned a home by the time we finished our vacation in nine days.
Marc was very professional, knowledgeable, courteous, patient and an all-around great person. He took the time to educate us, as we were first time home owners, and show us all around the Denver metro area. He also continues to follow up with us after the sale, which we really appreciate. I highly recommend Marc for your relocation needs.
