The Confluence Tower was extremely challenging in many ways. The ambitious project is located at the heart of Denver, bordering Lo-Do district and at the Confluence of Cherry Creek/South Plate River, with breath-taking panoramic views of the Front Range, downtown, and the Mile High Stadium.
Some of the challenges included: Historic Tramway Powerhouse View Corridor running through the project site, excavating, waterproofing, and shoring 3.5 levels adjacent to Cherry Creek (well below the water-table), a maximum floor plate of 10,000 sf per zoning restriction, a cantilevered pool with an acrylic edge, and a public park/plaza component.
At the time of opening, The Confluence was one of the few luxury high-rise rental buildings in Denver and currently the tallest for rent project in the city. An interactive light art runs vertically up the tower, making The Confluence an iconic part of the ever-changing skyline.
The 288-unit tower has a building base with pedestrian friendly units and retail spaces, providing strong connection and activation to the surrounding neighborhood/urban fabric.
The Confluence was designed to LEED Certified but received Silver upon completion.
