Lennox will occupy approximately 50,000 square feet of the new 169,000-square-foot building. Founded in 1890, the company serves customers and businesses across the U.S. and internationally.
gloProfessional, a Denver-based skincare and cosmetics company known as will soon occupy 33,000 square feet of the same Building 1 along Washington Street.
