Moss Adams LLP, one of the largest accounting, consulting and wealth management firms in the nation, is the latest tenant to sign an office lease at Block 162, a 30-story, 596,295-square-foot, Class A speculative office building located at 675 15th Street, between Welton and California Streets in downtown’s Central Business District. The professional services firm will occupy 24,780 square feet on the 19th floor beginning Q1 2023.
“This lease with Moss Adams reinforces the attractiveness of Block 162 and our strategy to position it as the region’s premier office building,” said Patrinely Group’s Rocky Mountain Region Senior Vice President David Haltom. “At Block 162, we have honed in on every detail of the building, from best-in-class HVAC, flexible, column-free floor plates for optimal customization, and first-class indoor/outdoor amenities, to create cutting-edge office space in a sustainable, energy-efficient, and well-ventilated building with easy access to light and air to take advantage of Denver’s great climate. In addition, we are extremely validated by the excitement we have continued to see from the Moss Adams team and other potential tenants for our indoor/outdoor Sky Terrace amenities – which we believe set a new standard for office amenities in Denver.”
Moss Adams selected Block 162 because of the advantages the space offers to attract and retain top talent in the Denver area, elevate the service it provides to clients and the community, and allow the company to lead the way for a new type of office environment. Those features include its sustainable, energy-efficient, technology-forward and flexible design, health, safety, and wellness features, prime Central Business District location, unrivaled transit and vehicle accessibility, including ease of access to I-25 and adjacency to light rail and the 16th Street Free Mall Ride shuttle, as well as spectacular Front Range views.
Completed in Q2 2021, Block 162 includes 20 floors of office space on Levels 11–30. The façade comprises an all-glass curtainwall system, offering views of the Front Range from every office floor through 10-foot, clear windows. The average floor plate size is 29,300 rentable square feet, designed to feature zero interior columns within the office floorplates. The building includes more than 10,000 rentable square feet of ground-floor retail in three retail lease spaces. The project offers parking at a ratio of 1.7 cars per 1,000 rentable square feet, with parking spaces located within three underground parking levels and a 10-floor, above-grade podium garage. The project is certified LEED Gold Core and Shell.
The office tower features an 11th-floor amenity area dedicated exclusively to the building’s tenants, with a fitness center, social lounge, and conference and meeting space. This interior amenity space provides direct access through over 110 linear feet of operable glass walls to the building’s outdoor sky terrace, which has a manicured outdoor roof garden and includes a dedicated exercise lawn, as well as seating areas, an outdoor conference table, and two outdoor fire pits. The fitness center features expansive operable glass walls that open onto the exercise lawn, along with an indoor section complete with stretching areas, cardio stations, free weights, and men’s and women’s locker rooms with private showers. The indoor social lounge also features expansive operable glass walls that open to the outside roof garden, offering casual seating, fire pits, and views of downtown, and it is connected to 2,800 square feet of conference and meeting space, AV-equipped for events and meetings.
