A New Hotel With a Rooftop Bar Is Coming to Civic Center Park

On December 14, Urban Villages revealed its innovative design and partnership with world-renowned architecture firm – Studio Gang.

The 13-story, mix-use building will be located at 14th street and Colfax Avenue – adjacent to Civic Center Park. Known as Populus – the aspen-inspired building will consist of a 250-key hotel, 40 micro-apartments and a public rooftop bar. Additionally, there will be a ballroom and lobby consisting of multiple food and beverage venues. This refreshingly new, architectural addition to the Mile High City will be Denver’s first by Studio Gang.

“As the signature private development on Civic Center Park, Urban Villages felt a responsibility to create a community asset that would contribute to the architectural legacy of the Mountain West and provide 24/7 activation in this underserved area,” said Jon Buerge, chief development officer at Urban Villages.

Because Civic Center Park is Denver’s only National Historic Landmark – the project will work closely with the Civic Center Conservancy. In hopes of reviving the iconic neighborhood – Populus joins some of Colorado’s most historically relevant buildings. This includes the Colorado State Capitol, Denver City and County Building, Denver Art Museum and Denver Public Library.
