Mortenson Denver Breaks Ground on New Office in RiNo Art District

The Mortenson Denver office, along with team members from Mortenson Development and Mortenson Properties, recently celebrated the groundbreaking of its new four-story, 65,000-square-foot office at 3083 Walnut Street within Denver's RiNo Art District ("RiNo"). 

The project is being developed, constructed, owned, and occupied by Mortenson. Mortenson will occupy roughly 37,000 square feet of the mixed-use building on the second and third floors, and the top and ground levels will be available for office and retail leasing, respectively. This milestone represents the start of an exciting new chapter for Mortenson in Denver. Our new office here exemplifies our growing capabilities as the build-out will feature Mortenson's full suite of cutting-edge vertical integration at every stage of the project.

Mortenson's self-performed services on the project will include civil utilities, mass excavation, concrete, rough carpentry, and drywall. Mortenson is also leveraging its controlled off-site manufacturing environment to produce and install prefabricated wall panels. Incorporating efficient energy systems, from low-lighting design to glazing and embodied carbon modeling, the building will exceed requirements set by the Green Building Ordinance. Building amenities will include private outdoor patio spaces, covered parking, an accessible bike storage room, and state-of-the-art HVAC systems.

The new building will provide space for more than 300 locally focused professionals as well as other Mortenson divisions that have not historically had a Denver presence, such as the company's Sports, renewable energies, Data Center, and Federal teams. Additionally, Mortenson plans to lease out the ground floor to retail tenants that will contribute to the vibrancy of the neighborhood.

Situated in the heart of RiNo Art District, the design of the building, conceptualized with Open Studio Architects, will complement the neighborhood's historic warehouses and feature mural installations by Colorado artists. Mortenson has also partnered with Fortis Structural Engineers, ME Engineering (IMEG), and Martin/Martin Civil Engineers on the build-out of the space. Construction completion and move-in are slated for the fourth quarter of 2024.
