OZ Architecture will lead the effort to convert Denver’s Historic Cathedral High School building at 1840 Grant street into a new boutique hotel developed by GFI Development Company. The Seton House and the Historic School, both once owned by the Archdiocese, occupy this site and will be renovated and re-purposed for a new hotel while simultaneously celebrating the building’s heritage throughout the exterior and interior.
The school’s former gymnasium is located across the alley mid-block on Logan Street, which the design team plans to preserve while transforming it into a portion of the hotel. A ground-up building is planned for what is currently the parking lot adjacent to north of the gym. The historic gymnasium building will become a very unique amenity space, which will open its doors to the local community to enjoy.
