Artist’s rendering on final design of Union Exchange building.
Built in 1975, the Union Exchange Building at 8933 E. Union Avenue in Greenwood Village has always been an integral part of its neighborhood. Tenants in the 22,000 square foot, two-story building are connected to the community. A tutoring business and driving school on the first floor are practically amenities of Cherry Creek High School, located directly across the street. The salon, café, and floral shop are essential resources that benefit the nearby residential neighborhoods. Tucked away in a corner on the second floor you can even find the office of this newspaper.
The building’s exterior is about to get a well-deserved update, its first in decades. The significant revamp will include new stucco, new awnings, new signs, improved wayfinding and even new colors. The architectural elements will be more contemporary and the signs will have individual backlit letters. The entrance will be modified to fully comply with the current requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
This entire project will be funded by the building’s owner, Union Exchange, LLC, who is using local small businesses as their vendors. Melissa Friday of Xan Creative is the designer of the project and Chuck Pell of CJP Architects prepared the plans. Construction work is being done by Spectrum General Contractors of Denver.
The work will begin in the next few weeks so that it can be completed before school starts in August.
