As a new symbol for the Mile High City, the Trango Tower is inspired by one of the most striking geological forms in the world. The rock outcropping named Trango Tower sits in the upper reaches of the Himalayas, a 3,000 foot tall spire known to world class mountaineers as one of the most daunting vertical climbs on earth.
The natural forces of gravity and weather result in a relentless imperative towards horizontality, as it is in man’s nature to establish his presence by building vertically in emulation of the grandeur of the mountains. Architectural history provides evidence of this concept beginning with the monoliths of Stonehenge. This proposed project, the 85 story Trango Tower in Denver, will be a building to match the beauty of the surrounding Rocky Mountain range with the posture of Pakistan’s Trango Tower. The tower will not only achieve the aspirations of the condominium residents and the hotel guests, but it will also serve as a new symbol for the Mile High City.
The base of the building will be clad in granite encompassing retail areas, condominium parking, office lease space, and the hotel concourse levels. From this base, the primary shaft emerges into the sky to house the hotel, condominium, fitness, and restaurant functions. Its shear vertical face will serve as evidence of its namesake and exercise its command of the Denver skyline.
