Construction has started on Industry Denver
, a 120,000-square-foot collaborative office building on Brighton Boulevard between 29th and 31st streets in Denver’s River North neighborhood.
Developed by Industry Denver, the space will hold up to three cornerstone tenants, a multitude of mid-sized users, dozens of boutique firms and sole proprietors. With the number of people who will work in the building daily and the recent addition of residential units in the neighborhood, Industry also will have up to four eating and drinking establishments in the first phase of the project.
"We were 40 percent leased before we even closed on the building," says Dean Koebel of Koebel and Co.
, who is handling leasing for the project.
Open floor plans with community kitchens, lounges and conference rooms will foster interaction and collaboration. The 26-foot-high ceilings allow for numerous mezzanines where tenants will have the opportunity to relax or work. In addition to on-site parking, the project will feature sustainable transportation modes from B-Cycle stations to encouraged use of Car2Go.
In addition to teaming up with Koebel, who also will develop about 65 townhomes on the site, Industry Denver is working with San Antonio, Texas-based Lynd Group to develop an eight-story condo project, says Josh Marinos, a partner in Industry.
"We're truly creating a neighborhood," say Marinos, who also developed Battery621
, a cooperative working space at Sixth Avenue and Kalamath Street.
Celebrating its three-year anniversary, Battery621 was full from the moment it opened and has had a waiting list ever since.
"I’m turning away three to five people a week wanting to be in our Battery building," Marinos says.
