Doors Open Denver: The Link

Oct 5, 2020


Tour guide: Alex Garrison, AIA, Design Director at Gensler

About the tour: On this tour we will walk you through the transformation taking place at The Link from an underutilized telecom building to a mixed-use office tower. The tour includes a look at the new curtainwall façade, hospitality-inspired lobby and tenant amenity floor on level 12. Renovating a 1960s-era building into a modern office building is not easy and we will be discussing the challenges and opportunities on the project.

About the building: The Link, formerly known as the Century Link building, is an 80,000 square foot 12-story tower built in two phases during the 1960s. The building was purchased by a partnership between Steelwave and Rialto Capital with the intent of transforming the building into a vibrant creative office tower. Expected to be completed end of 2020, The Link will feature an entirely new energy efficient curtainwall, roof deck and a hotel-like lobby with coffee shop.
