DRIVE 2 in the TAXI Development is complete! Ryan has been keeping us posted on the project for almost a year and it’s time for the final update. When we last checked in with DRIVE 2 in July, the 60,000 square foot office and event space was still under construction. For the final update, we’ll take a look at some of the unique spaces and finishes inside the DRIVE 2 building. Thanks to Chris Woldum and Justin Croft of Zeppelin Development for the tour!
Before we go inside, here is a photo of DRIVE 2’s main façade. You can see that some tenants are making good use of the garage doors; there is one open on both the second and third floors. The building is LEED certified and, like the rest of the properties in the TAXI development, features sustainable landscaping with native plants and grasses.
DRIVE 2 houses a variety of creative small businesses tenants, along with coworking and shared office spaces, like the one pictured below.
There is a private event space on the fourth floor that holds up to 200 people, offering some amazing views of the downtown skyline through the signature garage doors. The doors open onto a spacious balcony.
Many of the finishes in DRIVE 2 are carried over from other Zeppelin Development projects in the RiNo area. If you’ve been to The Source, you may recognize the aluminum two-by-fours that are used as railings throughout the DRIVE 2 building.
The yellow polycarb trim pictured below houses DRIVE 2’s insulation, a unique design choice that is a callback to the same finish in the TAXI buildings.
Whimsical yellow stripes crisscross the floors, lest you forget that you are on the site of the former Yellow Cab Company’s terminal.
Skylights in the ceiling and frosted glass panel inserts in the floors allow natural light to penetrate all the way to the center of the building.
If you‘re passing through RiNo, take a quick peek at the DRIVE 1 and DRIVE 2 buildings now that they’re complete. They’re an awesome addition to this up-and-coming neighborhood.
