Inside the Infill: The Ralph L. Carr Colorado Judicial Center, Part 3

Editor’s Note: This is the last of three posts highlighting the new judicial center.

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this “Inside the Infill” series, we looked at how construction is coming along on the State of Colorado’s new 695,000 square foot, $260 million, LEED-Gold judicial center in Denver’s Civic Center district. In this Part 3, it’s all about the view. As the tallest building along the southern edge of Civic Center Park, the Ralph L. Carr Colorado Judicial Center will provide employees and visitors with awesome views of central Denver in all directions. Here are a few of my and Ryan’s favorites from our recent tour.

Neat reflection in that last photo, eh?

We’re not quite done. The Ralph Carr isn’t the only new building with a nice view. Here’s a bonus photo of a view from the outdoor terrace at the new History Colorado Center:
