Applying the Mixed Use BOMA Standard

Looking to maximize the potential of a challenging site located in Denver’s Lower Downtown (LoDo) district, the client enlisted Gensler to lead the design direction of a 10-story, 332,000-square-foot, mixed-use building situated at the prominent corner of 16th and Market streets. Comprising four floors of luxury apartments, ground-floor retail and Class AA office space, and including three levels of below-grade parking, the innovative, mixed-use building fits seamlessly into LoDo’s urban context.

“Gensler provided an Area Analysis during all phases of design and development.”

In addition to architecture and design, Gensler provided an Area Analysis during all phases of the design and development. This included assisting throughout each phase of the mixed-use development, comparing previous design phases and setting market factor targets for single and multi-tenant office occupancy. Mixed-use projects are complex because of the multiple standards applied and the distribution requirements of common elements throughout the various standards.

The building’s modern design pays homage to the historic neighborhood through the use of brick and features a tailored materials selection and highly defined details, setting a new standard for authentic, modern architecture in downtown Denver.

Mile High CRE reported that 16M received a Downtown Denver Award.
