The great little infill project at 15th and Market Street in Lower Downtown has gone up at an incredible pace and is nearing completion. We first reported that 1500 Market, formerly 1510 Market, was under construction just under nine months ago. As a refresher, this is a four-story building with 16,000 square feet of office space.
Let’s start out with the exterior of the project. The facade is complete and the finishing touches are being made on the ground floor. The structural steel is integrated into the facade versus being covered up by another material, such as brick or glass. See our first update for more details on how this went through the Lower Downtown Design Review process.
For the next part of this update, we are going to take a look inside the project. A big thank you to Fred Glick of Seed Acquisitions LLC for inviting DenverInfill on a tour! Let’s start on the roof and go down from there. Both the Rocky Mountain Seed Building, which will be integrated into this project (more on that later), and 1500 Market feature a rooftop patio. The rooftop gives you a great view of Denver’s most modern skyscraper cluster.
GoSpotCheck is going to be tripling their space from next door and will be occupying the entirety of 1500 Market. The top floor, which is even with the rooftop deck, has an opening down to the third floor creating a great open space between both floors. The pictures below show both the top and third floor.
All of the lighting fixtures in 1500 Market will contain LED bulbs. In addition, the distribution for the heating and cooling is through a fabric duct system making the air disperse more evenly throughout the floor. All of the ceiling finishes you see, such as the exposed ducts and beams, is final.
The second floor, pictured below, is unique as it will directly connect to GoSpotCheck’s offices in the Rocky Mountain Seed Building. In the last picture, you can see a temporary wall, which will be taken down eventually connecting both buildings. This is possible on floors one and three as well, but is only being utilized on floor two as GoSpotCheck only occupies, and will retain, the second floor of the neighboring building.
As far as parking is concerned, there are limited spots in the building as there is only one underground level of parking. The total stall count is currently undetermined and more bicycle parking is being discussed as there is a lot of unused space under the Rocky Mountain Seed Building.
The target date to hand over 1500 Market to the tenant is August 11. There is still a bit of work to be done on the ground floor, such as landscaping, so we will swing by in a few weeks to do a final update on this project.
