Baur's Building

Historic Renovation

OVERVIEW

The Baur’s Building was a historic renovation of a downtown Denver landmark constructed in the early 1890s. The exterior of the building was restored to its early 20th century façade, and the interior of the 30,000 sf building was restored into large full-floor loft spaces for retail, restaurant, and office use. The first floor was renovated into a new full-service restaurant, and the upper floors was renovated as office space. The turn-of-the-20th-century building featured 21st century technology in its office space by utilizing underfloor air distribution of the HVAC. The system will provided higher indoor air quality for future tenants, reduced energy consumption, and provide significant improvements in terms of flexibility by combining all major power, voice, and data cabling into an easily accessible service plenum under the raised floor. Asbestos abatement was also included in project scope of work.

This project is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in compliance with the U.S. Secretary of Interiors Standards for Rehabilitation.
