INOVA II - VALUE OFFICE - DENVER, CO

INOVA II is strategically situated immediately east of the intersection of I-25 and East Dry Creek Road. This building is the second in a seven-building planned business park that will offer over 850,000 square feet of inventive mixed-use property. Current plans accommodate up to five additional buildings, with at least three multistory office, one industrial /flex asset with 24 foot clear heights, as well as over 650,000 square feet of single- and multi tenant occupancy, with flexible floor plates to accommodate campus users from 30,000 to 200,000 square feet. Phase two is the second five-story tilt-up office building constructed in the Denver market. The building will feature state-of-the-art construction, LEED Silver certification, column-free flexible floor plates and lease rates under $20 a square foot, triple net. Additional amenities include country club bathroom design, bike storage, showers, lockers, and a food truck court.

The overall sense of presence the building conveys is well scaled and balanced in spite of the market driven floorplate sizes which could be, handled differently, overwhelming.

The building has accommodated the need to be general without succumbing to being neutral.
