Project Size: 125,000 square feet

Architect: 4240 Architecture, Denver, Colorado

Structural Engineer: Cary Kopczynski & Company, Bellevue, Washington

Contractor: Haselden Construction, Centennial, Colorado

The 2nd and Detroit project is an eight-story office building with ground level retail space and two below-grade parking levels located in the iconic Cherry Creek North neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. The building will have a fully activated public courtyard incorporated at the Northeast corner of the project site. Additionally, the top floor will feature a skylight and an operable glass panel folding door at the exterior wall. Once completed, this building will be the first office building to be fully clad with a glass curtain wall in the area.

The substructure from ground level and below consists of shotcrete basement walls and a cast-in-place concrete frame supported by shallow foundations. The use of shotcrete eliminated the need for basement wall forms, which speed up the construction schedule. Car stackers were used in the lower level parking to increase stall count. The superstructure consists of structural steel framing and composite decks. Steel braced frames were used for the lateral force resisting system. The braced frames are discontinuous at Level 2 and relocated at the ground level to accommodate the lobby and retail spaces.
