DENVER – Prime West Companies and Partners Group have broken ground on 6900 Layton Ave, a LEED Gold 380,000-square-foot class AA office building, located at the southeast corner of Newport Street and Layton Avenue in the Denver Tech Center. 6900 Layton Ave is the latest addition to the dynamic Belleview Station transit-oriented development.
Ideally situated on the I-25 corridor, Belleview Station is a multi-modal mixed-use development and transportation gateway – with easy access for Light Rail, RTD, two major highways, local streets, bicycles and pedestrians.
6900 Layton will offer a walkable urban environment, an elevated west facing exterior terrace, paired with a tenant lounge that will house communal work space and as well as a gaming area. The building will also feature floor-to-ceiling glass, a large fitness facility, and first-in-class bike storage accompanied by a fix-it station. In addition, the ground floor will host up to 15,000-square-feet of retail space.
Prime West and Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, have partnered on the project. (Partners Group is investing on behalf of its clients). The Weitz Company is general contractor for the project, and Gensler’s Denver studio is the architect. Belleview Station’s master developer is Front Range Land and Development Co., from whom Prime West and Partners Group purchased the land.
“Like One Belleview Station, our goal is to provide a progressive and dynamic work space and 6900 Layton achieves that goal,” explains Jim Neenan, president and CEO of Prime West. “The vision for this community has come to fruition thanks to the careful curation of retailers, multi-family and office partners by Front Range Land and Development and we look forward to being a part of the continuing growth at Belleview Station.”
The building is currently 40 percent pre-leased to Fortune 500 company Newmont Mining Corporation (NYSE: NEM) and is expected to deliver summer of 2020. Ryan Stout, managing director, along with Nathan J. Bradley, managing director, and Zachary T. Williams, director, of Cushman & Wakefield are the leasing agents for the project.
“We are seeing strong interest in the remaining top five floors at 6900 Layton as a result of the incredible amenity package, prominent building signage available, and the urban-suburban community at Belleview Station.” said Stout.
“Belleview Station is well on its way to redefining how people can work, shop, dine and live all in one place – making it a signature asset for economic development and underscoring Denver’s position as a leading city for business success,” said Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock. “We’re proud to celebrate the latest premier office space to take shape at one of Denver’s many transit-oriented development sites.”
