The addition of the 45-story Four Seasons Hotel and Residences on the western side of Downtown provided some visual balance to the city’s skyline that is dominated by towers clustered along Downtown’s eastern edge. Adding to that balancing effect will be the 22-story 1401 Lawrence and 40-story 1144 Fifteenth projects currently under construction next door to the Four Seasons.

Over at DenverInfill, Ryan recently posted this photo of 1401 Lawrence going up next to the Four Seasons.


For today’s Blast from the Past, here is a photo I took on February 21, 2009 of the Four Seasons when it was about the same height as 1401 Lawrence is today:


The Four Seasons was completed in the fall of 2010.
