Office tenant signs two-story lease at DTC development

LogistiCare will occupy two floors at a new Denver Tech Center mixed-use building.

A health care tenant is the first to secure office space at a nearly completed, mixed-use development in the Denver Tech Center.

Ryan Stout, Nathan J. Bradley and Zachary T. Williams of Cushman & Wakefield secured the most recent tenant, LogistiCare Solutions LLC, at 6900 Layton St. at Belleview Station, a building under construction in DTC. The team represents the developer, Prime West, in all office leases at the property. Solveig Tschudi Lawrence of Kentwood Commercial represented the tenant.

LogistiCare, the nation’s largest manager of nonemergency medical transportation programs, will occupy the 11th and 12th floors, totaling 72,994 square feet, at the new Class A, 384,712-sf, 15-story building. It joins office tenant Newmont Mining Corp., which occupies the seventh through 10th floors.

According to Stout, the property has garnered significant tenant interest across the board. He said the building’s large, column-free, 36,497-sf flexible floor plates allows for tenant adaptation to multiple space planning strategies, which can be ideal for office tenants following COVID-19. The 13th through 15th floors remain available for office space.

“We are seeing strong interest in the remaining top three 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.

President and CEO of LogistiCare Dan Greenleaf praised the DTC location, saying the company’s office will be in an area of “technology, innovation and transformational growth” with a variety of surrounding amenities.

“Signing a lease with 6900 Layton for the 11th and 12th floors was the optimal choice for LogistiCare for several reasons,” said Greenleaf. “First and foremost, the location of our new space in DTC is ideal for our employees due to easy light-rail and interstate access, walkable restaurants, building amenities and the desirable Colorado work-life balance.”

When completed, the new building will feature a large fitness facility with exterior views and locker rooms, as well as bike storage. Tenants also will be within walking distance of a variety of retailers and restaurants at Belleview Station, such as Los Chingones, Corvus Coffee and Le French.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Tyler Bray and Tanner Johnson, who represent the developer in retail lease transactions at the property, recently secured YogaSix, a local fitness studio, as the first-floor retail tenant. It joins several other fitness tenants at Belleview Station, including barre3 and Orangetheory Fitness.

Construction on the building is set to wrap up within the month, with tenants moving in later this fall.
