Block 162, a 606,000-sq-ft office building in downtown Denver, topped out this spring. When complete, the 30-story Class A office building will include 20 floors of office space on Levels 11-30. The facade is comprised of an all-glass curtain-wall system, offering views of the Front Range from every office floor through 10-ft-tall clear windows. The office building will feature an 11th floor amenity area complete with a fitness center, social lounge and conference and meeting space. The interior amenity spaces will provide direct access to the building’s sky terrace, also located on the 11th floor.

Construction of Block 162 is slated for completion in December, with tenant occupancy available as early as January 2021. The project is targeting LEED Gold certification. Patrinely Group is the developer; the architect is Gensler; and the contractor is Swinerton.

“We are proud to announce this significant milestone of Block 162 and applaud our team for their dedication and ability to keep our delivery on schedule given some very challenging circumstances,” said Robert Fields, president and CEO of Patrinely Group.


A May 29 groundbreaking celebrated the start of renovations, additions and upgrades to Green Mountain High School, part of Jefferson County Public Schools. The work includes a new main entrance, classroom refresh, kitchen remodel, an additional bathroom group for a common area, renovation of the multipurpose trades and teaching-assembly area, and the addition of an auxiliary gym.

The small event was attended by Green Mountain High School leaders, teachers and community members in addition to project team members from MOA Architecture, ECI and Jeffco Public Schools’ construction management. The general contractor for the project is GE Johnson Construction Co.

School Superintendent Dr. Jason Glass, GMHS Principal Colleen Owens and the school board president each spoke at the event, which was livestreamed due to public health restrictions on public gatherings.

It will be the second large-scale renovation at Green Mountain High School since the school was built in 1971.
