5-Story Historic Warehouse Renovation :: 44,000 SF :: LoDo Denver, Colorado

The historic Peters Paper Company warehouse, a landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and only 2 blocks from Denver’s Union Station, became the latest of many 1890’s timber-frame structures to be repositioned as modern office space for the 21st century by River Studio Architects. We worked with the building owner, the Denver Building Department and the Lower Downtown Design Review Board to negotiate approval of a plan for adding new window openings, balconies and a rooftop penthouse to the structure to attract world-class tenants to this exclusive “100%” location. We guided the project through the initial core & shell infrastructure renovation, followed by successive tenant finish projects that filled the vacant upper floors with a new corporate headquarters on completion.
