TCC to Immediately Begin Construction of 210,000-Square-Foot Class A Office BuildingDENVER, CO – Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and Clarion Partners announce the development of 1700 Platte Street, a 66,320-square-foot site located in the vibrant Platte Street neighborhood located between the Lower Highlands (LoHi) and Denver Union Station. The new Class A speculative office building with first floor retail will be known as Riverview at 1700 Platte, and will total approximately 210,000 square feet. Construction is scheduled to begin in early April 2016 and be completed by the end of 2017.
“During the past 18 months, the Platte Street micro market has gained enthusiastic acceptance as a legitimate extension of the Denver Union Station and CBD markets,” says Bill Mosher
, Senior Managing Director with TCC’s Denver Business Unit
. “In addition to the neighborhood ambience of Platte Street, the impressive growth in the area abutting Denver Union Station, LoHi and the Highlands residential neighborhoods has turned this area into a highly desired environment,” he added. “New Class A construction in this authentic pedestrian neighborhood is a truly viable alternative for tenants which prioritize a culture that is attractive to top-notch talent.”
Riverview at 1700 Platte is a 4-and-5-story, 210,732-square-foot, Class A speculative office building with 9,309 gross square feet of street retail. The project will include red brick on the west, south and north exteriors to respect the historic fabric of Platte Street with the east facade featuring a glass curtain wall to capture the dramatic views of the Downtown skyline. Floor plans call for 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, 5 river-side 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 this building. Riverview is designed to achieve LEED certification. Underground vehicle parking exceeding downtown ratios and on-site bicycle storage will accommodate building tenants. The natural setting along the Platte River with views of the mountains, River, Commons Park, and the urban skyline offers an engaging location, connecting Platte Street to the River through a unique and sustainable courtyard feature.
“This site is the best remaining land parcel available for development in the Central Platte Valley, LoDo, and LoHi submarkets,” said Michael Duffy, Senior Vice President, Asset Management, with Clarion Partners. “We are excited to partner with Trammell Crow Company on this opportunity.”
“Market demand for truly differentiated locations, with genuine place-making features, is stronger than ever”, stated Ann Sperling
, Senior Director, within TCC’s Denver Business Unit. "At Riverview at 1700 Platte we are inviting tenants to enjoy the built-in features, the connection to Denver’s gorgeous outdoor environment, and the vibrant amenities of Platte Street to create their ideal professional space,” she added.
Riverview at 1700 Platte offers best-in-class accessibility, sitting along I-25 with direct access to two interchanges and less than 1,000 steps from Denver Union Station’s bus and commuter rail terminals. The project’s design leverages its proximity to the River, offers inspiring views of downtown, and its location on a pedestrian-oriented historic street delivers a first-class transit-oriented opportunity for tenants.
Tryba Architects is serving as the project architect and Saunders Construction is the general contractor. The CBRE Denver Team of Chris Phenicie, Allison Berry and Hilary Barnett manage the leasing of the office space. Kelly Greene of Urban Legend Retail will market and lease the retail space.
