new combined office, retail, and restaurant project proposed for rare empty space in downtown denver
Plans have been announced for the construction of a $20 million mixed-use structure on property that is currently owned by the City of Denver.
The Denver-based Nichols Partnership says it wants to build the five-story building at 1701 Platte Street on a 1.4-acre site that is currently being used as a parking lot.
Nichols specializes in office, retail, hotel, and multi-family development.
The City had earlier issued a Request for Proposal soliciting development and building ideas for the site, which is located just north of the South Platte River in a neighborhood of office and mixed-use structures.
As designed by the Denver-based Beck Group Architecture, the building would measure around 246,000 square feet, with the top four floors built for offices, and the ground floor dedicated to restaurant and retail space.
The project currently has a 2020 completion date and is awaiting the approval of the City.
