Back in December, I wrote a post saying that the Colorado National Bank Hotel conversion at 17th and Champa had begun construction. Since then, construction has been in full swing. It’s always an interesting sight to see additional floors being added to an existing structure.
A hoist elevator has been constructed and work has begun on adding floors to the core. As a reminder, they will be adding two additional floors to the structure in a sort-of square doughnut shape so light can shine down through all but the first three floors.
It’s excellent seeing progress on this project! This will eventually add a great presence, not to mention an additional 230 hotel rooms, to an intersection that’s already hustling and bustling in central downtown.
I’d love to see an article about all the development in the lower highlands area. There’s an endless tide of new buildings between Zuni/I-25, Speer/20th
