Much of Rockeller’s recent commercial real estate investments and developments over the past few months have been industrial properties and multi-family assets. Last month, the Rockefeller Group announced a joint venture partnership with Summit Venture Capital Group to acquire land at 1158 Delaware St. in the Golden Triangle neighborhood of Denver, where they will develop a 250-unit multifamily property with 2,000 square feet of ground floor retail. The project is expected to start in April and be completed in early 2024.

Project details

Paradigm River North will have approximately 188,000 square feet of office space and 12,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. Designed by Denver Tryba Architects, the property will hint at the neighborhood’s industrial past with a brick facade and large factory-style windows. It will also have open-air balconies on each floor and high ceilings. Open and customizable floor plans will provide flexibility and efficiency. Other features include an eighth-floor veranda, a conservatory, expansive outdoor patios, bike storage with lockers and showers, and electric car charging stations.

Located in the heart of the RiNo Art District, the building is close to public transportation that connects downtown Denver, Union Station, and Denver International Airport. The property is a 5-minute drive from Interstate-70.

The rental of the project is managed by Newmark Executive Managing Directors Jamie Gard and Jeff Castleton.
