The new home to Brion Energy will be a 27-storey, 564,000 square foot, "AAA", LEED Gold Certified office tower. 707 Fifth Street's distinct elliptical form, with floor-to-ceiling glass, is designed to maximize panoramic views of the city and the Rockies.

 

The concrete-core, steel framed office tower was completed in 2017.
