The Denver Architectural Foundation is excited to announce our next hard hat tour!

When it is finished in August, 2014, this building will be a city and university landmark establishing a strong identity for CU Denver on Speer Boulevard. With indoor and outdoor public spaces that reinforce the concept of an “urban boulevard” shared by the campus and the city, the new Academic Building embodies the exciting developments at CU Denver, as they celebrate their 40th anniversary. The building will serve students, alumni, and support the community with:

  • A variety of classrooms, offices, large lecture halls and flexible dynamic academic space to meet our growing needs and create better educational experiences;
  • “One-stop-shop”  student services, including student affairs, admissions, disability and financial services; and
  • Indoor and outdoor public spaces to reinforce the  relationship of our campus with our downtown Denver neighbors both in terms of geography and partnerships.

The project team has received their Temporary Certificate of Occupancy, therefore PPE is not required.
