The first phase of Catalyst, a 180,000 square foot development officially known as Catalyst HTI (Health-Tech Innovation), opened recently so it’s time for our final update on this River North project. Located at Brighton Boulevard and 35th Street, Catalyst includes office and ground-floor retail space and other amenities in a seven-story building along with an adjacent parking structure. Occupying about half the block, a second phase would add another 120,000 square feet of development on the remaining half block. For our previous coverage of Catalyst, click here.

Two views of the building’s primary corner at 35th and Brighton:

The first of these final two photos shows the northeastern side of Catalyst looking southwest down Brighton Boulevard; the second phase of Catalyst would be built to the right of the new first phase where the two smaller buildings are currently located. In the last photo, here’s the view of Catalyst from the top floor of the new Source Hotel (a final post on that project is coming soon!).
