The new Pikes Peak Summit Visitors Center is preparing to open to the public on June 24. “We spent a lot of time really organizing it,” said Alan Reed, a principal with GWWO Architects. “I think it will be much cleaner looking, and certainly going into the building, the first view from the top of the stairs is a wonderful view. The north overlook is incredible. We spent a lot of time thinking about those places where people could get by themselves and experience the peak alone. That’s what’s magical about this place.”
