Hines, Ivanhoé Cambridge and McCaffrey have topped out a 235,000-square-foot mass timber office building in Denver. The six-story project, T3 RiNo, is expected to be one of most sustainable and environmentally friendly developments in the city.

The office building is set to feature 43,000-square-foot floorplates with 12-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. Tenant amenities are expected to include a 5,000-square-foot fitness center, 100 bike storage spaces, private outdoor decks on each floor, 5,000 square feet of common areas and a conference center. Plans also call for 17,000 square feet of ground floor retail space.

Situated at 3500 Blake St. in Denver’s RiNo Art District, the building is being developed on an approximately 1-acre parcel, according to CommercialEdge data. Future tenants will be nearby a connection to the RTD commuter rail system offering access to Denver’s Union Station Transit Hub and the Denver International Airport.

Project completion is expected later this year.

Built with sustainability at the forefront

Designed by Pickard Chilton Architects and DLR Group, the project’s design is fully recyclable, renewable and non-toxic. Sourced from Nordic Structures, the timber used for this project is manufactured by Chantiers Chibougamau out of the boreal forest’s black spruce. Certifications including a LEED Gold, WiredScore Platinum, WELL and ENERGY STAR are all expected to be achieved by the development.

T3 RiNo is named after Hine’s proprietary T3 office concept—timber, transit, technology—and the area it is situated in, Denver’s River North Art District (RiNo).

Hines’ T3 is a product aimed toward more sustainable developments centered around the sustainability of timber, new technological innovations and transit benefits. So far, the Hines T3 portfolio encompasses 26 assets, including T3 Eastside, a Class A office project currently under construction in Austin’s East submarket.

Hines is considering expanding its T3 platform from office buildings to industrial and residential projects, as well. The product is a contributing factor toward the firm’s goal of reaching net-zero operational carbon across its building portfolio by 2040.
