DENVER — Along with Brue Baukol Capital Partners, The Opus Group — a family of commercial real estate development, construction, architecture and structural engineering companies — invited media to join nearly 200 other attendees at the Jones building demolition event on September 8th, that included a ceremonial glass breaking and happy hour.
The Jones District™, located at 9697 E Mineral Ave | Centennial was built in 1984. The 180,000-square-foot Jones building is being demolished as the developer prepares for the next phase of work on the 42-acre masterplanned development that will become a destination to live, work and play.
Opus Development Company will transform The Jones District into 1.8 million square feet of mixed-use space including residential, hotel, office and retail projects – making it Centennial’s largest commercial development.
Representatives were on hand to speak about the future of the project, including: Mark Johnson, vice president, Real Estate Development, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. Peter Coakley, vice president, Real Estate Development, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. Nick Mann, associate project manager, Opus Design Build, L.L.C. Geoff Baukol, president & partner, Brue Baukol Capital Partners and Chad Brue, CEO & founder, Brue Baukol Capital Partners.
Opus will deliver The Glenn, the first project in The Jones District — scheduled for completion in February 2018 — a six-story, 306-unit, mixed-use, luxury apartment building, will set the stage for what is in store for the community.
With spectacular mountain range views and upscale amenities, the six-story multifamily building will feature pedestrian-friendly retail space on the ground floor. For residents, there will be an abundance of amenities such as a designated office space, a fitness center, an outdoor pool and hot tub, a fire pit and outdoor landscaped grilling areas. The sixth floor will feature a club room and an outdoor deck with dramatic views of the Front Range.
Conveniently located just west of the I-25 corridor with direct access to the Denver Light Rail system, The Jones District will be Centennial’s largest commercial development. In addition to being regarded as one of the safest cities in Colorado, Centennial ranked 47th out of Money Magazine’s “100 Best Small Cities to Live” in 2012, with exceptional parks, award-winning schools and abundant business opportunities.
