There was no modest beginning for 1600 Glenarm Place. In 1966, one year before the building was completed, the observation deck opened and boasted the title of Denver’s highest urban vantage point.
Originally the Security Life Building, 1600 Glenarm sat vacant for over a decade before being acquired by RedPeak in March of 2004. Where others had attempted to redevelop the property, RedPeak succeeded. And succeeded in a big way. RedPeak converted the building to residential use in 2006, offering Denver’s first high-rise apartment community long before Downtown Denver was the desirable location it is today. This 32-story building has been at the center of many high-profile events including Governor Hickenlooper’s “Over the Edge” campaign to raise money for cancer research. The local political celebrity rappelled down the side of the building to awaiting crowds and earning expansive media coverage.
Now one of the top 20 apartment communities in the country for its online reputation, and the recipient of multiple awards including the 2014 ASLA Colorado Design Award-General Design Over $500K Merit Award, 2006 Downtown Denver Partnership Awards Project of the Year, and the 2006 Denver Mayor’s Design Award, 1600 Glenarm Place houses the main RedPeak office and offers large, upscale and recently renovated apartments and amenities as well as a premier location in the heart of downtown.
