Beacon Capital Partners, a leading office investor and manager, and Elevation Development Group announced the completion of vertical construction at The Hub, a 275,000 square-foot, mixed-use development in the heart of Denver’s River North Art District.

The Gensler-designed property includes 250,000 square feet of office space plus 25,000 sf of retail space. HomeAdvisor, a leading digital home services marketplace and one of Colorado’s largest technology employers, has signed a 70,000-sf lease to house several hundred employees at its new headquarters.

“Creative companies demand distinctive space, and that’s what The Hub provides,” said McClure Kelly, senior managing director, Beacon Capital Partners. “Innovation and imagination are the driving forces behind RiNo’s transformation into a world-class center of artistry and tech.”

The Hub office workspace features open floor plates, unique building materials, 14-foot ceilings and oversized windows that afford expansive mountain views and abundant natural light. The building includes a 185,000-sf parking garage, along with electric car charging stations and secure bike storage. A garden terrace provides tenants with a blend of indoor and outdoor space. Tenants also have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center.

The eight-story building is located at 3601 Walnut St., at the corner of 38th and Blake streets, 1.5 miles from downtown Denver and steps from the 38th & Blake RTD commuter-rail station.

The Hub is seeking LEED and WiredScore certification, as well as Energy Star rating. It will be ready for occupancy in the fourth quarter . JLL is leading office preleasing, while the Zall Co. is leasing the retail space. A marketing suite fitted with augmented reality is set up at 3750 Downing St.

Mortenson is the contractor for The Hub.
