Tallest Building in Colorado

Constructed in 1984, Republic Plaza is the tallest building in Colorado, as well as the tallest in the entire Rocky Mountain region. It is located at 302 17th Street in Denver. The building was constructed in modern architecture from concrete and Sardinian granite. It has a gray curtain wall fa├žade, and stands 714 feet tall with 56 stories. The tower was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill.

In addition to its 1,200,000 square feet of office space, Republic Plaza has three floors dedicated to restaurants, retail shops, and service businesses. Its three-story marble lobby is home to Colorado’s quarterly Art in Public Places event, and on the last Sunday in February, the building hosts the Anthem fight for Air Climb for the American Lung Association. www.fightforairclimb.org
