Downtown tower tops off upgrades

The office tower at 1660 Lincoln St. is moving into the last phase of its makeover.

The office tower at 1660 Lincoln St. is moving into the last phase of its makeover.

For the final treatment of an eight-figure facelift, a downtown office tower is getting a renovated lobby and new elevators.

Seattle-based Unico Properties has started refurbishing the lobby at 1660 Lincoln St., a 20-story office building that Unico bought for $38 million in 2013.

“This is the capstone of a huge building renovation that included common areas on each floor, bathroom upgrades and a pretty terrific fitness center,” said Austin Kane, a regional director in Denver for Unico.

Kane said that Turner Construction should finish up with the project this summer and deliver a class-A building to the downtown marketplace.

Kane said having a fitness center is becoming a must-have amenity downtown.

“Tenants these days are on-the-go, and having something right in their building that they can take advantage of is sought-after,” Kane said. “It’s as nice a shower as you’ll find in an office building.”

He also said that the showers are a perk for bike commuters.

Kane declined to give occupancy figures but said the renovation has helped retain tenants.

Unico owns seven other office buildings around Denver and a large portfolio in Portland and Seattle.
