OZ to design World Trade Center campus

OZ Architecture has been selected to design the World Trade Center Denver campus in near the 38th and Blake commuter rail station in River North.

Officials plan to develop an economic development engine that provides an accessible, welcoming destination where new ideas will be forged, art and culture will be celebrated, businesses will grow and innovations will be shared.

The project includes the World Trade Center Denver offices, new and established businesses, creative workspaces, conference facilities, hotel and retail and restaurants. An interconnecting series of art-filled outdoor public spaces will unify the various components.

"Unlike many of the world's nearly 300 World Trade Centers that are iconic skyscrapers designed with a singular focus, WTC Denver creates an engaging, inclusive campus that embodies Colorado's collaborative spirit, entrepreneurial heritage, hospitable climate and resultant outdoor lifestyle," says Sean Campbell, founder and CEO of Formativ, WTC Denver's development partner.

In an effort to capitalize on the collaborative nature of the project, OZ is conducting a series of idea-generating planning sessions that engage the business and design community both locally and internationally.

The WTC Denver campus is expected to break ground next year, with phase one completed in 2019. Landscape architecture design will be provided by Design Workshop. Andrew Feinstein from EXDO Properties is a development partner and a land owner in the project.
