Trammell Crow Company (TCC) announces the leasing of 86,054 square feet at Riverview at 1700 Platte to BP’s Lower 48 onshore business, which will establish a new head office at the site in early 2018.

TCC and its joint-venture partner, Clarion Partners, kicked off construction of this new Class A, 203,800-square-foot, 4-and-5-story office building in April, and has had tremendous interest from tenants looking at a location such as Riverview with various transit alternatives, easy interstate access, and immediate amenities for their workforce.

“From the early design stages of our Riverview project, we knew that the natural feel of the building, with its riverfront location, mountain views, and historic, walkable, neighborhood feel along Platte Street would create an attractive option for office tenants looking for something unique in the Denver market,” stated Bill Mosher, Senior Managing Director with TCC’s Denver Business Unit.

BP will occupy the first, fourth and fifth floors at Riverview. “The new Denver office will give us greater access to our substantial asset position in the Rocky Mountain region and provide us with a strong platform for growth,” said David Lawler, CEO of BP's Lower 48 onshore business. “We also are very excited about the design and location of our new headquarters at 1700 Platte, which reflect what we aspire to be as an organization: innovative and future-minded, with a strong commitment to community and to the environment.”

Riverview at 1700 Platte’s design calls for red brick on the west, south and north exteriors to respect the historic fabric of Platte Street. The east facade features a glass curtain wall to capture the dramatic views of the Downtown skyline, Commons Park and the Platte River. Floors 2, 3 and 4 are comprised of two wings, connected by a LINK building, offering elevator cores serving both wings, unequalled programming efficiency, and flexibility for single or multi-tenant occupancy. A fitness center, river-fronting balconies with unobstructed views of Downtown, and an outdoor courtyard on the second level, providing direct access to the South Platte River Park, all contribute to the uniqueness of Riverview.

Saunders Construction is the general contractor and Tryba Architects is the architect for the building. John Reynolds and Jim Wachholz of Cushman & Wakefield represented BP Lower 48in the transaction. The CBRE Colorado team of Chris Phenicie, Hilary Barnett and Allison Berry represented TCC in the transaction and handle the office leasing and marketing for Riverview.
