A new office building nearing completion in the Denver Tech Center has landed its second major tenant.
Atlanta-based LogistiCare Solutions LLC has leased the 11th and 12th floors of the 15-story 6900 Layton building.
That adds up to 72,994 square feet, according to Kentwood Commercial, whose broker Solveig Tschudi Lawrence represented the tenant. Cushman & Wakefield’s Ryan Stout, Nathan Bradley and Zachary Williams have been marketing the building’s office space on behalf of the developer, Denver-based Prime West.
It’s the largest new office lease to be signed in the Denver area since the coronavirus pandemic began in mid-March, not counting subleases, according to Cushman & Wakefield.
LogistiCare Solutions says on its website that it helps state governments and managed care organizations run transportation and integrated health care programs. It bills itself as the nation’s largest manager of non-emergency medical transportation, managing more than 63 million rides annually in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.
In a statement, LogistiCare president and CEO Dan Greenleaf said the building’s location “is ideal for our employees due to easy light rail and interstate access, walkable restaurants, building amenities and the desirable Colorado work/life balance.”
“From a business perspective … the thriving ecosystem of the Denver Tech Center is synonymous with technology, innovation and transformational growth that is at the core of what we do,” he added.
6900 Layton, at 6900 Layton Ave. within Belleview Station, already had one tenant committed when the project broke ground in the fall of 2018. Gold mining firm Newmont Corp. is taking the building’s seventh through 10th floors, approximately 142,000 square feet. The space will serve as Newmont’s headquarters, replacing its existing one a short distance away in Greenwood Village.
The latest lease reduces office availability in the building to just its top three floors. The building is expected to be completed in the next 30 days, with the first tenant moving in this fall. Building-top signage is also still available, as neither Newmont nor LogistiCare opted for it.
The building has also landed one retail tenant. YogaSix is a franchised yoga studio chain owned by Xponential Fitness, whose other brands with a local presence include Club Pilates, CycleBar and StretchLab. Locally, YogaSix has four other locations currently operating or in the works in Denver, according to the brand’s website. Cushman & Wakefield’s Tyler Bray and Tanner Johnson represented the developer in that deal.
Prime West also built the nearby One Belleview Station office building, which lured Western Union’s headquarters from Englewood.
