A Denver architecture firm said it’s owed more than $15,000 by a local family office.
Architectural Workshop LLC filed a lawsuit last week against Denver’s Central Street Capital and related entities.
According to its website, Central Street Capital operates as a private family office investing the funds of founder Rob Salazar, who became wealthy by starting multiple health care-related businesses. He is known locally for his philanthropy.
A message left with Salazar’s assistant on Tuesday was not returned.
The architecture firm said in the lawsuit that it has not been paid $14,400 for work related to 1763 and 1795 Central St. in Denver.
The parcels each have a two-story building on them, at least one of which is used as office space. In February, an Architectural Workshop staffer submitted a project concept to the city, proposing a five-story condo building at the site, according to records.
Architectural Workshop also said in the lawsuit that it is owed $1,320 for work related to 3900, 3901 and 3958 Elati St. in Denver.
3900 Elati St. is the former Regency Hotel, which has been converted to an apartment community targeting students.
Attorney Terry Ehrlich of Denver’s Arnold & Arnold is representing Architectural Workshop in the litigation.
