Another major office building has broken ground in Downtown Denver.

Construction of the 250,000 square foot One Platte office development at 1701 Platte Street recently got underway. The five-story project by Nichols Partnership will provide several ground-floor restaurant/retail spaces and a landscaped entry courtyard in addition to the office space. Parking will be accommodated on two underground levels.

We stopped by the site to bring you these photos showing that the asphalt parking lot on the property has closed and site work on the project has begun.

It’s nice to see another parking lot go away and a new infill project move forward that will bring more density to this mixed-use downtown street that is just a few minutes walk from Denver Union Station.
