Topping-out of Flight Office Building on TAXI Campus
DENVER –– Vertix Builders has announced the topping-out of the 140,000 square foot Flight office building on the TAXI campus in RiNo. Flight is the latest addition to Zeppelin Development’s burgeoning mixed-use campus, home to Boa Technology and also includes space for dozens of other growing and prospering companies.
“We achieved the topping-out of Flight on-time and on-budget, and we’re looking forward to a successful completion of the new international headquarters for Boa Techology,” said Ryan Bonner, president of Vertix Builders, which includes a team of construction professionals who have delivered over $1 billion in projects. “Our company has a wealth of experience in a variety of construction types, providing an innate understanding of all of our clients’ goals and vision. Flight is the perfect example of our ability to understand our clients’ expectations and exceed their demands.”
“The entire Vertix team has been a pleasure to work with,” said Kyle Zeppelin of Zeppelin Development. “The Vertix company culture and work-style complements and enhances our work. A sane, predictable and fun business relationship is hard to find in Denver’s construction market. Our development company has a number of projects under construction, and Vertix has set a high mark for what’s possible. We’re looking forward to working with them on more projects in the future.”
The 140,000-square-foot office building will be home to Denver-based Boa Technology, a leading innovator of purpose-built closure and adjustment systems. FLIGHT is located at 3575 Ringsby Court, part of the mixed-use TAXI community. Among its design-forward and environmentally conscious features, FLIGHT boasts one of the city’s largest private green roofs, a 135 kW photovoltaic solar array and is targeting LEED Platinum certification from the US Green Building Council.
Boa Technology first moved into TAXI in 2012 and has experienced major growth – from 55 employees to now more than 140 employees – while at the site’s DRIVE building. Maintaining its global headquarters in Denver, Boa and its proprietary closure system has seen international success with offices in Austria, Japan, Hong Kong, and China, and with more than 300 brand partners worldwide.
Integrated into cycling, snow sports, outdoor, athletic, utility, safety and medical products, Boa Technology enhances the user experience by improving performance, fit and function through the patented Boa closure system.
With the addition of FLIGHT, TAXI will be home to one of the largest single-tenant office spaces in the RiNo (River North Art District) neighborhood. Designed by Dynia Architects, the project will house not only typical office functions, but also a research-and-development department with full engineering capabilities, a rare juxtaposition for a commercial space in the urban core. Boa’s space features dynamic amenities such as a two-story atrium, outdoor meeting spaces and a 100-bike storage facility.
