Looks like New York’s supertall boom is heading west.

Greenwich Capital’s plans for Denver’s tallest tower, slated to stand 1,000 feet high, were unveiled last week. The 90-story building, known as Six Fifty 17, would be the tallest building in the city. The project, designed by Uruguayan architect Carlos Ott, would offer residents of its 248 condos a number of luxuries now standard in the city’s glitziest projects. The building would feature a boutique hotel, a custom climbing gym, a bowling alley, multiple pools, and 22,000 square feet of retail space out of its estimated total area of 1 million square feet.

Michael Ursini, managing partner of the Manhattan-based developer, told the Denver Post the project would cost about $400 million to build. The skyscraper has yet to undergo local approvals, however Ursini said they were “100 percent going forward.” [Curbed] — E.K. Hudson
