The Opus Group delivers 2 industrial speculative buildings

The buildings feature 28- to 30-foot clear height and drive-in doors.

The Opus Group, in a joint venture with USAA Real Estate, recently completed Potomac Park at Dove Valley, a two-building speculative industrial development in Englewood. Totaling 264,522 square feet, the development is situated on a 27-acre site.

“We overcame a unique topographical challenge given the project location within a hillside landscape,” said Joe Swensson, senior manager of real estate development at Opus. “We constructed these buildings anticipating diverse tenant needs and are grateful to our partners for working alongside us during this process.”

Potomac Park at Dove Valley is located near major transportation routes, including Interstate 25, Expressway 470 and Interstate 225. The eastern building totals 118,270 sf with 28-foot clear height, six drive-in doors and 225 parking stalls. The western building is 147,252 sf with 30-foot clear height, six drive-in doors and 271 parking stalls.

Opus’ expertise allowed for an efficient delivery of two high-end buildings on a challenging site. Large glass windows were installed to take advantage of the scenic location, providing tenants in the western building expansive and unobstructed views of the Rocky Mountains.

“The Denver industrial market remains robust, and this year we’ve continued to see a steady demand for available space,” said Sean Cummings, vice president of real estate development at Opus. “We are excited for the unveiling of this expansive project, and we look forward to developing more projects in the future to meet the demands of the market.”

Opus was the developer, design-builder, architect and structural engineer of record.
