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.
Milender White was responsible for the build-out of The Curtis Hotel, a pop culture themed facility featuring 336 guest rooms with contemporary décor, four levels of structured parking and 19,000 sq. ft. of amenity space including a grand ballroom, several meeting rooms, two restaurants and a coffee retailer.
The hotel was built out while the student housing portion of the building was fully occupied. This required Milender White to utilize a creative construction and mitigation plan to minimize disturbances to the upper floors and to ensure the safety of the residents and general public. The team provided flexible solutions that resulted in cost savings and scope reduction allowing the owner to make changes that enhanced the overall quality of the finishes.
