Downtown Denver: Law firm signs first lease at 1900 Lawrence office tower

Law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP signed the first lease at a new tower planned to be downtown Denver’s biggest office building in over four decades.

The firm is slated to take over the 30th floor of 1900 Lawrence in February 2025 after relocating from its current downtown office at 1801 California St.

With completion set for May 2024, the $400 million project is expected to span 30 stories, over 700,000 square feet of office space and 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level.

“1900 Lawrence establishes a new standard for high rise office buildings in downtown Denver and Gibson Dunn’s tenancy demonstrates the demand we are seeing from market leading tenants,” said Jamie Roupp of JLL, a global commercial real estate services company. His team is leasing the tower for Riverside Investment & Development Co., a Chicago-based real estate firm referred to as “one of the most active developers in the country.”

The project is described as Denver’s first building — “and one of only a handful globally” — designed with the following certifications in mind: LEED-Platinum, WELL-Platinum and WIRED-Platinum.

The project is at “the nexus of the fastest growing submarkets in Denver’s Central Business District,” according to a news release earlier this month.

The building’s amenities include a fitness center, a tenant lounge with outdoor terrace access and more, plus hospital-grade ventilation systems and touchless elevators.

Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP has maintained a presence in the Denver area since 1981 and aids businesses with commercial litigation, capital markets, antitrust and other matters.

Riverside Investment & Development Co. partnered on the project with Convexity Properties, a real estate investment firm, and Canyon Partners Real Estate LLC.
