TAXI 3, formerly known as DRIVE, is nearing completion! Stephen Dynia Architects led the early design concept of the cutting-edge four-story office building and BRS was brought in to document the design for construction.
Check out the time-lapse video below, taken from our office window.
Located in the heart of the River North Art District (otherwise known as RiNo), the 38,000-square-foot building is part of the TAXI Development that is the home of our own office and was originally the site of the Yellow Cab dispatch center and corporate headquarters as well as an old freight warehouse. A few tenants, the biggest of which is Boa Technology, have already started to move in and occupy the space. So far, the feedback has been extremely encouraging.
Some of TAXI 3’s inviting features include recycled wood gym flooring for floors, tables and counters; numerous garage doors at each level, reminiscent of the original garage doors of the former Yellow Cab depot, with large expanses of glazing to allow for natural daylight and sweeping views of the surrounding metro area; a skylight that runs down the spine of the building, with glass inserted in the floors below, permitting even more daylight to flood the main circulation halls; and unfinished metal interior doors.
It’s not uncommon to be able to stand in one spot in the building and see through to the outdoors in all four directions. In addition to providing great views and daylight, the garage doors offer natural ventilation for those beautiful Colorado days…
