Nichols Partnership is planning to build a five-story, 247,000 square foot office building on Platte Street in Lower Highland. The property is outlined on the Google Earth image below:
The city has owned the site since the 1950s and has been using it as a public surface parking lot. Earlier this year, the city agreed to sell the site to Nichols Partnership for $13.50 million. The proceeds from the sale will be used to fund affordable housing and bike lanes, according to the city.
A site development plan for One Platte is currently in review with the Denver planning office. In addition to the office space, One Platte will include several ground-floor restaurant/retail spaces, two levels of underground parking, a fitness center and rooftop deck, bicycle parking, and outdoor plazas.

Nichols Partnership hopes to break ground on One Platte by mid-2019 with completion in late 2021.
