The Yard, An Adaptive Reuse Office Space Comes to Life | by Sean O’Keefe

The Yard, an adaptive reuse of a former warehouse, adds 86,000-SF of new creative office and gathering space to the Denver market at 2323 Delgany Street within the Denargo Market. A joint venture between EverWest Real Estate Partners and WHI Real Estate Partners L.P., the adaptive reuse project began with a single-story, concrete tilt-up panel warehouse that had been subjected to years of additions, subtractions, and utilitarian modifications over many previous lives. Located just steps from Coors Field, the Yard was completed in December 2017 and puts tenants in a highly amenitized environment less than a half-mile from the RiNo, Ballpark, and Union
Station submarkets.

With Gensler leading design services and Provident Construction taking charge of general contracting, the centerpiece of the design is an 8,000-SF indoor common area surrounded by perimeter offices of full-height glass walls. Tenant spaces will have their own interior entries and brand expression opportunities but also benefit from the economy of shared conference rooms and the large central gathering space. The design takes a less is more attitude, removing unnecessary exterior and interior elements from the existing structure. An expansive front porch has been added to create an inviting transition into the space and accommodate an identifiable entry, which includes prominently displayed bike storage. The building’s double-height interior is daylit by enlarged 18-ft window openings and some
25-ft skylights. Image credit: Gensler
