A 380,000-square-foot office building anchored by Newmont Mining Corp. has broken ground at Belleview Station, which Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock called “the most dynamic and progressive transit-oriented development site in Denver.”

Newmont becomes the second Fortune 500 company to choose the development at Interstate 25 and East Belleview Avenue for its headquarters. Western Union occupies One Belleview Station, which was Prime West Cos. completed last year.

The new building, 6900 Layton, also is being developed by Prime West. It will comprise 15 stories of Class A office space slated for completion in summer 2020. Newmont will occupy the seventh through 10thfloors and also has an option on the sixth floor. Cushman & Wakefield brokers Ryan Stout, Nathan Bradley and Zachary Williams are marketing the 11ththrough 15thfloors, which Stout said are generating “tremendous interest” from both Fortune 500 companies and other users.

Partners Group is the capital partner for 6900 Layton, designed by Gensler and being built by The Weitz Co. The building is Partners Group’s first investment in the Denver market since selecting Colorado for its Americas headquarters.

Belleview Station is a 51-acre TOD being developed by Front Range Land and Development. With office buildings, apartments and numerous restaurants, it brings an urban environment to the suburbs.

“Belleview Station is well on its way to redefining how people and work, shop, dine and live all in one place, making it a signature asset for economic development and underscoring Denver’s position as a leading city for business success,” said Hancock.
