Hard Hat Tour: Modera Cap Hill
Oct 22, 2018
Join the Denver Architecture Foundation for our October Hard Hat Tour at Modera Cap Hill. The tour is from 4:30 to 6:00 PM on Monday, October 22, 2018, and will be guided by Phil Fossen and Sarah Caesar with Davis Partnership Architects.
About the tour: The tour will start in the Lobby/Leasing space at the corner of 12th and Grant. Participants will be able to experience this 14' space before finishes have been installed, providing a unique perspective of scale and form. Climbing up one flight of stairs to the main amenities space, participants will get a sense of what it takes to construct a pool on a raised deck. Continuing up the building, we will make our way to Level Eight Sky Deck, which boasts views of the mountains and Downtown. Along the way, we will be stopping at residential units in varying stages of construction, from drywall to rough-ins.
About the site: Located in the heart of the Capitol Hill Neighborhood, Modera Cap Hill is stitching together our urban fabric by replacing a parking lot and small structure that didn't address the street. The design of the project seeks to address the pedestrian realm by creating a lobby and building presence at the corner of 12th and Grant, and by creating stoops for double height, mezzanine units along both street frontages. The tower of the building was sculpted to maximize solar exposure to the podium-level roof/pool deck and amenities, and takes advantage of the fantastic views of the Capitol, downtown and the Front Range beyond! – Description and rendering courtesy of Davis Partnership Architects
