Antero Resources, an independent natural gas and oil exploration company, will be the lead tenant in One Union Station, which will be constructed at the corner of 16th and Wynkoop streets, across from the historic Union Station, East West Partners and Starwood Capital Group confirmed today. East West and Starwood have formed a joint venture to develop the building. Construction will start on September on the 110,000-square-foot, five-story building. Antero plans to take 67,000 square feet of the building, which also will have retail space on the ground floor.
“We are excited to have Antero as our first tenant at One Union Station,” said Mark Smith, president of East West Partners – Denver. “Their clear commitment to downtown Denver and the future of our city speaks volumes about them as a company. And, their commitment to the building means that construction can begin.”
Chris Frampton, managing partner of East West Partners – Denver, said it is “very exciting,” to have the commitment from Antero.
He also noted that the building will be energy-efficient.
“We are excited that we will be building under the LEED Gold standards and we’re excited to be a part of the entire redevelopment of the historic station and the public plazas between each building,” Frampton said.
Paul Rady, chairman and CEO of Antero, said that the company has been committed to the Lower Downtown area for more than a decade. “One Union Station will provide our employees with a state-of-the-art building in a location that they will love,” Rady said.
