The Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building is a beacon at
the center of the City governmental heartbeat. The philosophy behind
its origin was to create a central location for over 50 City agencies.
Ultimately, this provides the taxpayers a means to efficiently conduct
business with a range of city departments and agencies. Currently
the building is occupied by the City Auditorís office, the District
Attorneys office, Public Works, Planning and Development, and the
Department of Economic Development to name a few.
The ownership of The Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building is
unique in that it was developed for the City and County of Denver by
Mile High Development LLC and owned by a non-profit entity, CCOB,
Inc. which was formed by Mile High, and leased to the City for 25 years.
In addition to the obvious benefit to provide public access to the most
frequently visited agencies, the Webb building has pushed the envelope
in municipal architecture. The buildings uniqueness is rooted in its
whimsical incorporation of art on each level. Creative artists from around
the country partnered with the City to successfully blend sculpture,
paint, and metal work to create a vibrant blend of form and function.
The 704,000 sqft, Wellington E. Webb Municipal Office Building houses
over 1,800 employees from 52 agencies and subagencies of the City and
County of Denver.
The building is a 12-story office tower with 571 underground parking
spaces and 100 bike lockers and includes renovation of the 88,000 square
foot Annex building. Building exterior is limestone and granite with high
performance, low-E curtainwall glazing. Interior is granite, wood
paneling, and carpet accents, dramatic lighting with permanent and
changing art and civic exhibits. The building is also LEED certified.
Mile High Development managed the design build process, installation
of $10 million of FF&E and the move management of 1860 City
employees and equipment into this facility.
