Corum Real Estate Group announced today that it will develop a 12-story, 187,000 square foot office building at 5050 South Syracuse Street in Denver. The site is immediately east of I-25 between Belleview and Union Avenue in Denver Tech Center. 5050 South Syracuse is a Class AAA, LEED certified building designed by Denver-based architecture firm Clutch Design Studio with Hensel Phelps as the general contractor. Bill Woodward and Randy Swearingen of Inverness Properties will handle the leasing of the building.
“5050 South Syracuse provides a dramatic visual gateway to the north Denver Tech Center skyline along the I-25 corridor,” explains Robin Ault, AIA Principal in Charge of Design for Clutch Design Studio. “The difficult task was to combine 5 full floors of parking, 6 floors of open office and one double height lobby into a singular tower on a tight site. We didn’t want this to look like an office sitting on top of a parking garage, so we aligned the floor plates of both, used the excess area to penetrate the interior with two large light wells and wrapped the building in a unique curtain wall design. The exterior envelope is solid at the tower base gradually rising to a transparent top with a pattern inspired by nautical motifs.”
The building will also feature co-working spaces including a common conference room. Building amenities include a fitness facility, roof deck with panoramic mountain views, and a lobby that will function as an activated tenant lounge with accommodation for both a financial institution and a café. Parking will be at a ratio of 3.5 spaces per 1,000 square feet and will be located in an integrated parking garage.
Floor plates average 30,000 square feet and will utilize column free construction for maximum flexibility. All of the office space will have ten foot ceilings and floor to ceiling glass.
Eric Komppa, Vice President of Corum Real Estate Group mentions, “We are thrilled with the opportunity to develop another iconic legacy asset in the Denver Tech Center. This building will incorporate the latest in innovative design and sustainability features and will present a unique opportunity for tenants in the marketplace.”
The capital has been fully secured for the construction of the project. Ground will be broken during the third quarter of 2016 with delivery in the second quarter of 2018.
