Schnitzer West Announces Westray, a Three-Building Office Community in Centennial, Colorado
Groundbreaking of the premier office development to take place Q3 2020
Schnitzer West, one of the West Coast’s leading real estate investment, development and property management companies, today announced plans to develop Westray, a three premier Class-A office towers in Centennial, Colorado. The three sixteen-story buildings will be located at 6363 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard, a nearly 11-acre site across from Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater and just west of the Village Center light rail station.
Westray will be developed in phases, with the first phase of the project to begin in Q3 2020. Phase one will include the development of a tower with approximately 290,000 rentable-square-feet. The building will offer an efficient standard floor plate size of 31,500 RSF and a parking ratio of 3.0 per 1,000 RSF. Construction of phase one will be completed in approximately 24 months.
“We see tremendous opportunity in the Denver region and will continue to invest in strategic development opportunities throughout the area,” said Doug Zabel, managing partner at Schnitzer West. “Westray’s proximity to a wide range of housing options and easy access to the RTD rail system allows employers to lease true Class-A office space while reducing commute times in half as compared to traveling to Denver’s central business district.”
In addition to its premier office space, Westray will include a parking podium below the building and state-of-the-art amenities to optimize tenant collaboration, efficiency and productivity. Westray’s amenities include Schnitzer West’s signature great room, a conference and training center, comprehensive fitness center with fully appointed locker rooms, dedicated onsite concierge, a landscaped terrace with mountain views, a coffee bar, as well as grab-and-go food service.
Project architect Fentress Architects will work with general contractor The Weitz Company to develop the three-building complex. Other project team members include structural and civil engineers DCI Engineers, MTech Mechanical, Weifield Group Contracting, Russel + Mills and Avenue Interior Design.
Listing brokers include Andy Ross, John Beason and Andrea Staucet, all of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL).
