Construction Commences for Empire Staple CompanyDENVER, CO – Trammell Crow Company (TCC) announces the purchase of approximately 4.8 acres in its new Crossroads Commerce Park (Crossroads), and the groundbreaking of a build-to-suit for Empire Staple Company, one of the nation's oldest and largest specialty distributors of tool, manufacturing and packaging supplies. Empire Staple Company will relocate their headquarters to Crossroads, and TCC is building 61,870 square feet, with an anticipated completion in the first quarter of 2016. Colorado Business Bank (CoBiz) is the construction lender, Murray & Stafford is the general contractor, and Ware Malcomb is the architect for this build-to-suit.
Based in Colorado since 1952, Empire Staple Company sells systems and supplies to nail, staple, strap, tape and mark products used in a wide variety of industries to manufacture, package and ship goods. This new building will feature a larger showroom, as well as accommodate their headquarters offices, light assembly and distribution needs.
“We are pleased to welcome Empire Staple Co. to Crossroads Commerce Park, and we are confident the Park will provide them with the environment they need to serve existing and new customers throughout the Rocky Mountain region,” said Bill Mosher, Senior Managing Director with TCC’s Denver office.
Bill Spicer, owner of Empire Staple Company, is thrilled to have a new location with access to both I-25 and I-70. “The Company has been looking for a new location from our current location on Platte Street for about 5 to 8 years,” adding, “…this location of 58th Avenue and I-25 has always been, in my mind’s eye, the right place to be.”
Crossroads Commerce Park is a modern, master-planned development of nearly 1 million square feet of Class A industrial space in multiple buildings, situated near the prime interchange of Interstates 25 and 70. The flexible site plan at Crossroads provides for building sizes from 17,000-to-376,000 square feet with cross dock, front park/front load and front park/rear load designs. TCC and Principal Real Estate Investors purchased the 36 acres adjacent to this parcel in July and commenced construction on three (3) speculative industrial buildings equaling 640,000 square feet at Crossroads. Future phases will include individual buildings on a build-to-suit basis for users for sale or lease.
The Newmark Grubb Knight Frank team of Mike Wafer and Tim D’Angelo represented the Seller in the land sale.
