Tabor Center is a $330 million office/commercial/hotel complex in Denver's urban renewal area. The two block site is bisected by a street that had to be kept open during construction. The street is now carried on a bridge built on caissons drilled from the surface, then excavated below. Two office towers were designed as steel/concrete composites, with their loads carried down through subterranean garages to bedrock. One garage is post-tensioned concrete, the other precast. A hotel, a 3-story retail structure and a plaza complete the complex.
