GE Johnson tops out Prism building in downtown Denver

The Prism building, which was designed by Davis Partnership Architect, is a nine-story, core-and-shell office building development being led by Shea Properties. The office building of more than 100,000 square feet completes the build-out of the block between 17th and 18th streets, along Curtis Street, and is directly adjacent to The Quincy.
