Crescent Real Estate Holdings LLC recently announced the completion of renovation works to Johns Manville Plaza and 707 17th Street in the Denver City Center. The renovations aim to provide customers improved access, street views and more amenities for food, shopping and entertainment options.
Renovations at Johns Manville Plaza include the addition of a bright access lobby to Stout Street. The new lobby is intended to accommodate customer traffic to Denver’s Light Rail parking lots and downtown retail. It also offers a new modern storefront around the ground floor. Renovations at 707 17th Street include the conversion of a back lobby into a second main entry. The company also added a bike room for customers that enjoy bicycling to work.
The recently renovated outdoor plaza has become a popular meeting space for customers during coffee and lunch breaks. The outdoor plaza now features enhanced lighting in order to provide a pleasant evening seating experience for the guests at the Marriott Denver City Center Hotel.
“Our customers enjoy the improved amenities and have demonstrated their approval of the upgrades through high utilization of new spaces,” says Ashton Steele, senior property manager for Crescent Real Estate Holdings LLC. “We understand the added value of these amenities makes Denver City Center a more attractive office option.”
The strategy has had a positive effect and at the beginning of the year Johns Manville renewed its 118,865-square-foot lease at the Johns Manville Plaza. During 2013 Crescent also secured another 73,341 square feet in new leases at the same location and added 21,284 square feet in renewals and new leases in 707 17th Street.
