The Z Block development project in Denver’s LoDo neighborhood will include a 170-room hotel by Sage Hospitality, the Denver Business Journal reports. The 325,000-square-foot development project is the result of a partnership between owner Grand American Inc. and developer McWhinney Real Estate Services. Denver-based Shears Adkins & Rockmore Architects handled the design work. Grand American has owned the property for more than 30 years.
“We are excited to partner with McWhinney to develop this property into a product that the community, the city and we can be extremely proud of,” says Bruce Phillips, Grand American President, in a news release.
Located on Denver’s historic Windsor Dairy Block along Wazee Street, the Z Block project will feature office, retail and residential space and is expected to be finalized in the fall of 2016. Developers also hope to obtain LEED Gold Certification for the building upon completion.
“Denver continues to provide us with great opportunities for creative and responsible real estate deals that align perfectly with our values of creating a true sense of place and ultimately, spurring broader economic growth,” says Chad McWhinney, CEO and founder of McWhinney in a press release.
The property on the Windsor Dairy Block is conveniently situated in close proximity to Coors Field and Denver’s newly renovated Union Station. Amenities will include 23 outdoor terraces, 416 underground parking spaces, rooftop terrace, fitness center, state-of-the-art conference facilities, and 75 luxury residential units with retail space on the ground floor.
