Glendale 180

Glendale 180

Located five miles southeast of downtown Denver and under a mile from the Cherry Creek Shopping District, Glendale180 marks a bold investment in the future and a revitalization of Glendale. The project will marry the trails, waterways, and cultural sites of Cherry Creek to its south and the Cherry Creek neighborhoods and shopping district to its north, re-invigorating an underutilized space into a vibrant hub.

Glendale 180 is a nexus of entertainment and relaxation. It’s the home base for all types of people and occasions. It’s the go-to place for coffee and breakfast in the morning; a serene setting for a mid-morning walk or jog amid Colorado wildflowers; and, located just off Cherry Creek, the perfect waypoint to grab a snack on a sunny, weekend bike ride. In the evening, with the orange hues of a Rocky Mountain sunset as its backdrop, the central park will swell with thousands of people on their way to one of the area’s best restaurants, liveliest taverns, or newest entertainment concepts.

Glendale 180's three defining principles – culture, nature, and leisure – are stitched together to establish flow and define and unify interconnected spaces. The project will house a hotel, extensive retail, nightlife attractions, restaurants, a bicycle cafe and bodega, and various social and connective spaces. Walkways and plazas sit across several levels, and the site's dynamic configuration - constricting and opening along its length - will serve as both destinations and connectors, drawing in pedestrians from the surrounding destinations and encouraging social exchange. 

The landscape and architectural design have pulled inspiration from iconic Colorado landforms, where a series of public concourses weave together graceful aspen groves, alpine hillside green roofs, a canyoned corridor with a membrane water skin, and an open meadowed central plaza.
