Hines Breaks Ground on Eos at Interlocken in the Denver-Boulder Corridor

(DENVER) –Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today the start of construction on Eos at Interlocken, a Class A, 186,000-rentable-square-foot, LEED® Gold pre-certified office building in Broomfield, Colorado.

The new development is located at the southeast entrance of the Interlocken Business Park, one of the most dynamic submarkets in the Denver-Metro area, with superb visibility along the I-36 corridor.

Eos at Interlocken is being developed on a speculative basis, with the belief that the environmentally sustainable building will satisfy strong current demand from tenants seeking to improve energy efficiency as well as their image of corporate environmental responsibility.

“This building was envisioned and designed in direct response to the values and initiatives currently at the forefront of corporate and personal environmental decision-making within the Denver-Boulder Corridor,” said Hines Senior Vice President Charles Elder. “The Boulder and Interlocken markets have a burgeoning grassroots movement toward the sustainable occupation of office space and housing.

To the surrounding community, being environmentally efficient and responsible is a way of life, and we believe that we have embodied the essence of this lifestyle in the Eos project.”

The building, designed by Forum Architects of St. Louis, Missouri, will feature sustainable design elements unique to the Denver-Boulder office market. Hyper-efficient floorplates will be incorporated in all four levels of the building allowing both large and small tenants the ability to capitalize on a variety of design and programming options.

Large 10’ floor-to-ceiling windows will bring daylight deep into the core of the building, improving employee productivity and reducing the need for lighting.

Mechanical systems and building standards at EOS are aimed at reducing overall energy consumption allowing for highly effective and proficient operations for both the base building and tenant spaces.

More than half of the roof will be home to an array of high-efficiency solar panels that will produce approximately 8-10 percent of the building’s electrical power needs and will dramatically improve energy savings.

Surrounding building’s perimeter will be 18 vehicle charging stations for use by office occupants and visitors.

The 2,500-square-foot ground-floor fitness center will feature “regenerative” cardio-equipment which will channel the energy created by the person using a machine back into the main electrical grid for use in the operation of the building.

The main lobby paneling will be fabricated using reclaimed “pine-beetle kill wood” from Summit County, making rare commercial use of an otherwise unusable natural material from the devastated forests of Colorado.

 “We are pleased to have this exciting new project underway, and are confident that it will resonate with the community,” said Hines Senior Project Manager Jay Despard.

“We believe that Eos at Interlocken will provide an opportunity for environmentally responsible companies to office in an environment that is a tangible manifestation of their philosophies.

Regardless of industry, we are seeing a palpable shift to this mindset.

The bottom-line has a much broader definition these days, and Eos will be a great resource for groups who hold corporate responsibility to a high standard.”

David Hart and Chris Phenice of CBRE will lead the leasing of the project. The general contractor is the Denver office of Whiting-Turner Construction.

Hines has been active in the Denver market since 1982.

The firm recently developed 1515 Wynkoop in Lower Downtown Denver, a 306,000-square-foot mixed-use office and retail building on the corner of 15th and Wynkoop which is over 90 percent occupied.

Prior to 1515 Wynkoop, Hines developed the iconic “Cash-Register Building” now know as Wells Fargo Tower in the Denver CBD and 4600 South Syracuse in the Denver Tech-Center.
