Republic Plaza

SOM; chief designer: Donald Smith

View from 17th Street


The tower set back with a plaza or courtyard on both the 16th street and 17th street side

I believe this monolithic slab is the tallest building in Denver.
The cladding is made up of panels of light gray granite.

View from the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall

The plaza on this side of the building has a large retail mall.
