The last structural I-beam was signed by attendees of the project team, then carried to a nearby truck, where it was driven across the street, to be hoisted up onto the 14th level, completing the momentous occasion of topping out the roof.

Superbloom’s green roof design will provide a microclimate of supportive pollinator habitat plantings and a lush backdrop to the luxe rooftop terrace. The Populus Hotel has been meticulously designed to not only offer luxurious accommodations to Denver visitors, but also to pioneer sustainability and environmental consciousness within the hospitality industry.

As a general project update, Superbloom has been coordinating construction administration within the streetscape, and facilitating the reuse of locust trees from the nearby 16th Street Mall Redevelopment. The Populus Hotel’s roof topping ceremony was not only about celebrating an architectural marvel with sustainable intentions, but also a beacon of hope for a better future. Stay tuned as we raise the bar (beam?) for eco-friendly hospitality and witness the union of mindful design and environmental responsibility at The Populus Hotel.
