Sherman & Howard Announces Headquarters Relocation to Block 162
Firm’s New Headquarters Will Set a Standard for New Workplace Design and Safety Features
DENVER, Colo. (March 19, 2021) — Sherman & Howard L.L.C. today announces that it will relocate its headquarters to Block 162, a new 30-story building in the heart of Denver’s Central Business District at 675 15th Street, between California and Welton Streets. The firm is the first tenant to sign a lease in Block 162 with Patrinely Group and USAA Real Estate Today. It is the largest new office lease signed in Denver in the past 12 months.
Sherman & Howard’s space will set a new standard for office environments, with sustainability, energy efficiency, technology, and flexibility in mind, as well as best-in-class health, safety, and wellness features. It will also support the firm’s growth strategy, which focuses on attracting and retaining top talent and elevating the service it provides to clients and the community. Sherman & Howard will occupy nearly 60,000 square feet on levels 23 and 24 of the building, beginning Q4 2021, with a team of about 230 lawyers and staff in the area.
“Relocating the firm’s headquarters to Block 162 allows us to reimagine our workspace to reflect rapid and profound changes in the role of physical space for today’s law firms, increase operational efficiency through purpose-designed floor plans, and deliver a hospitality-forward experience for our clients, guests, and teammates,” said Sherman & Howard’s Chief Executive Officer Greg Densen. “As an Am Law 200 firm and one of Denver’s leading firms, our space will match our team’s energy and innovation. Our new workspace enables the type of collaboration that is the emerging standard for professional service firms. Block 162 provides a modern, day-to-day work experience through multifunctional workspaces offering expansive views of downtown, an abundance of natural light, and state-of-the-art technology. Relocating to Block 162 is an important step in bringing our vision of the future of the firm to life.”
The firm’s new offices have been designed by Stantec, one of the world’s leading design firms, and i2 Construction, a Denver-based, full-service commercial general contractor, will handle the buildout.
Sherman & Howard’s new headquarters will offer convenient mass transit and vehicle accessibility, including easy access to I-25 and adjacency to light rail and the 16th Street Free Mall Ride shuttle. The building’s shared amenity area includes a fitness center, outdoor exercise lawn, social lounge, bodega, and conference and meeting space with operable glass walls and abundant natural light. Its design incorporates a best-in-class ventilation system and touch-free entry doors and restroom fixtures, along with a host of other health, safety, and security features.
