Today a ground breaking ceremony was held in Greenwood Village for Granite Place at Village Center, a 10-story office development. The site is located at 6165 South Willow Drive just east of I-25. Members of the development team and representatives from Greenwood Village were on hand on this unseasonably warm February day.
“We know that this project responds to some true client needs. Our clients want to be in vibrant communities with the support of municipalities,” stated Confluent Development President and CEO Marshall Burton. “The notion that we are in Greenwood Village checks the very first meaningful box for our very important clients. Being walkable to light rail, one of the highest traveled light rail stations along the corridor and the notion that you can enjoy the amenities of the building really add to the work-life balance that truly makes this project special.”
Texas-based Granite Properties is the project owner and co-developer, and Confluent Development is the co-developer of Granite Place at Village Center. Open Studio Architecture is the firm that designed the building and GE Johnson is serving as the general contractor. Denver-Based Koelbel & Company was the owner of the property and sold the land to Granite Properties.
“We could not be more excited to be a part of the team that is going to put this incredible site into production,” said Granite Properties Managing Director Stephanie Lawrence. “The process that we went through with the city(Greenwood Village) was very collaborative and interactive process that we really appreciate.”
The building is within walking distance of the Arapahoe at Village Center RTD light rail station. Granite Place is a speculative development and will feature 300,000 square-feet of leasable office space. An adjacent parking garage will also be constructed and will house approximately 1,000 parking spaces.
“It is great to have Granite as one of our corporate citizens, and having that connection with Buz Koelbel makes it even better since he and his dad were part of the building blocks of this city,” said Greenwood Village Mayor Ron Rakowsky.”
