Air ambulance company Air Methods Corp. has landed a new headquarters in Greenwood Village.
The medical transporter has signed a lease for 62,000 square feet at 5550 S. Quebec St. Doug Wulf with Cushman and Wakefield represented the landlord, Northstar Commercial Partners. The location puts the firm within minutes of a light rail station, restaurants and shopping.
“In southeast Denver, you can’t always walk to daytime amenities,” Wulf said.
Northstar purchased the Greenwood Village office property in 2015 for $16.1 million, according to Arapahoe County records.
Air Methods will take the full first and third floors of the 200,000-square-foot building. Neighboring tenants include Waste Management and Scott Lowry PC.
Air Methods is the largest air ambulance firm in the United States. In March, the medical helicopter company, which has weathered several lawsuits from patients that accuse it of price gauging, agreed to sell itself to the private equity firm American Securities for $2.5 billion. The merger was completed April 21 and the company has since been delisted from the Nasdaq.
Air Methods was previously based in Centennial, but had offices in the Denver area, Wulf said.
“It was a multiple-location consolidation that they’ve been working on for years,” he said.
Dan McGowan and Tim Bourdelais with JLL represented Air Methods.
