Colorado T3 RiNo has timber, transit and technology
Denver has always been a modern city and, in some ways, the state of Colorado is one of the most progressive places in the nation. So why should Denver lag behind the rest when it comes to design? Architecture studio Pickard Chilton designed T3 RiNo, a mixed-use office building. The design will make this building one of the most sustainable and environmentally-friendly developments in all of Denver.
T3 RiNo is six stories and 250,000 square feet of space designated for T3 usage. That’s timber, transit and technology. The building is designed with timber, an homage to the brick and timber buildings of Denver’s past. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows provide views of Denver’s amazing skyline.
Outdoor terraces on the building provide little places to escape for fresh air. The building has plenty of space for amenities. There’s a tenant lounge, private tenant terraces, a modern fitness facility and three parking levels. The office spaces themselves have 12-foot ceilings and 10-foot glass windows. Retail space on the ground level is even more spacious, with 16-foot ceilings. The location of the building puts it in the path of several public transit routes. From here, there is quick and easy access to a pedestrian bridge, a rail station and the International Airport.
Pickard Chilton is an architecture studio that’s well known for its innovative design. McCaffery, Hines and Ivanhoe Cambridge selected the studio for the T3 RiNo building, named for the River North neighborhood where it will be located.
The 5,200 cubic meters of heavy timber used in the design will offset 6,387 metric tons of CO2. The building will be targeting LEED Gold Certification, along with WELL Certification.
