The 30-story Curtis Building in downtown Denver was originally constructed in 1971 and included a hotel and office space. It has since been converted to include The Curtis Hotel on the lower 16 floors and student housing for a nearby university campus on the upper 14 floors. The renovation was completed as part of a large-scale redevelopment and urban renewal project.
The Auraria Student Housing upgrades included the addition of a fourth floor fitness room and a third floor study center and student lounge. Exterior patio renovations include a sport court, wading pool and grilling lounge.
