About the Project:
The deteriorating conditions of the existing Summit Complex on Pikes Peak has prompted the City of Colorado Springs, Pikes Peak–America’s Mountain, U.S. Army, and Colorado Springs Utilities to start the process to design and construct three facilities on two building sites on the summit of Pikes Peak. The project includes decommissioning and removing the existing facilities, building new facilities designed specifically for the Pikes Peak summit facility, The new design will seek to bring together an outdoor experience, maximized views, honoring of history and the National Historic Landmark status, building architecture and materials suited to the harsh environment, and interactive programming through interpretive design.
The proposed new Summit Complex will consist of the Pikes Peak Summit Visitors Center on one site and the City’s Plant Building, CSU’s Communications Facility, and the U.S. Army’s High-Altitude Research Laboratory (HARL) on the second site. Although separate facilities, the City’s Plant, CSU’s communications tower, and U.S. Army’s HARL, will be designed to give the appearance of one facility.
