Sherman & Howard Opens New Office in Block 162
Innovative Workspace Design Reflects Brand Values, Helps Attract and Retain Top Talent, and Offers Best-in-Class Health, Safety, Wellness, and Mobility Features
DENVER, Colo. (December 8, 2021) – Sherman & Howard announced today the move of its Denver office to Block 162, a new 30-story building in Denver’s Central Business District at 675 15th Street between California and Welton Streets. Sherman & Howard’s team of about 230 attorneys and staff moved into nearly 60,000 square feet on levels 23 and 24 of the building, making the firm the first tenant to occupy space in Block 162.
“Moving into this new setting gave us the opportunity to conceive an ideal workspace that reflects our brand values; allows us to serve our clients in a modern, hospitality-forward setting; supports our talent acquisition goals; and reinforces our position as one of Denver’s most innovative law firms,” said Greg Densen, Sherman & Howard’s CEO. “And by locating in the heart of Denver, incorporating technology to support the hybrid work model, and leveraging state-of-the-art health, safety, wellness, and sustainability features, we have created a modern, people-focused environment to address the next generation of growth.”
Sherman & Howard worked with Stantec, one of the world’s leading design firms, and i2 Construction, a Denver-based, full-service commercial general contractor, to develop and deliver a reimagined work setting that prioritizes non-traditional work arrangements, sustainability, technology, and flexibility. Purpose-designed floor plans, expansive views of the Front Range and the city, an abundance of natural light, and state-of-the-art technology are just a few of the features enabling the firm to deliver a hospitality-forward experience for clients, guests, and team members.
“The team at Sherman & Howard perfectly embodies “The Elevation Effect,” a regional initiative from the Metro Denver EDC, that illustrates our community’s culture of partnership, innovation, and creativity,” said J. J. Ament, president and CEO of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. The Metro Denver EDC is a part of the Chamber’s family of organizations. “The firm’s new office at Block 162 helps bring that culture to life through a space that is highly collaborative and people-oriented and located in the heart of downtown Denver.”
According to Densen, Sherman & Howard’s new offices offer a rich combination of in-office and nearby amenities that includes superb mass transit and highway access; an onsite fitness center, outdoor exercise lawn, social lounge, bodega, and meeting spaces that promote wellbeing and collaboration; state-of-the-art ventilation system; touch-free entry doors and restroom fixtures that promote greater health, safety, and security; and nearby retail and food options.
“The combination of long-term trends in the legal market plus dramatic recent changes in expectations about the definition of work and where it happens allowed us to think outside the traditional law firm box. We have created a new setting for a new way to work, and we could not be more excited with the results of our design effort and the opportunities Denver presents for the next generation,” said Densen.
