Hopefully it got a deep cleaning.
A nondescript office building in Centennial is for sale after its former occupant, a swingers club, acknowledged in court documents that it was, indeed, a swingers club.
The admission by the now-defunct The Office Social Club, whose website once boasted it was “the largest adult-themed venue in the state,” brought an end to the establishment’s battle with the City of Centennial.
The city sued the business in February, saying it was a “sexually oriented business” operating in a part of town not zoned for that use.
At the time the suit was filed, The Office’s website said the establishment had 16 different rooms, including a fake doctor’s office, classroom and office. It encouraged members to “pencil in their closest colleagues.”
The website came down shortly after BusinessDen contacted the business about the lawsuit. A company representative at the time told a reporter The Office was merely “renting out office space, just like any other business that rents out space.”
The two-story, 15,384-square-foot building at 6886 S. Yosemite St. is owned by Price Holdings LLC, which bought it for $1.49 million in 2007, records show.
Price Holdings, which was also a defendant in Centennial’s lawsuit, terminated The Office’s lease for the property in March, according to court documents. It and the business then sought to get the lawsuit dismissed.
But dismissal didn’t happen until last week, when a judge approved an order drafted by the parties stating that The Office had been a sexually oriented business and it could no longer operate at the property. The defendants and the city agreed to cover their own legal costs.
The building, meanwhile, was put up for sale this month with a $2.75 million asking price, per a LoopNet listing. The structure built in 1982 sits on 0.68 acres and is “ready for the next owner/user or investor to take advantage of this prime location,” according to marketing materials prepared by Marcus & Millichap.
Change may be coming to the general area. Centennial is currently creating a plan for 6886 S. Yosemite St. and 22 neighboring properties that will “set forth a long-term vision for transforming the area into an economically vibrant, pedestrian-oriented, cohesive mixed-use environment,” according to the city’s website.
The office building previously housed a tech company, Accucode, which was founded by Kevin Price. He also managed The Office’s LLC.
The city was represented by Jennifer Madsen and Robert Widner with the Centennial law firm Widner Juran. Madsen declined to comment on the case’s resolution.
Jean Smith Gonnell, who recently joined the law firm Troutman Pepper, represented the business and landlord. She did not respond to requests for comment.
