An Auction and Marketplace for Shipping and Cargo Containers

25th & Larimer - Commercial Container Building

23.03.2014 - Posted by Updated On 23.03.2014    

A first of its kind for Denver, the new mixed use property located at 25th and Larimer Streets is built out of 29 recycled shipping containers. Colorado is home to several shipping container houses, like this one in Nederland, and a Starbucks in Northglenn, but this is the first commercial application of this type, and we’re excited for it.

The construction of the project started in May of 2013 and was completed last month, and is currently fully occupied. Full disclosure, it was 100% leased prior to completion; which is pretty impressive given the current occupancy rates in a lot of retail facilities on the market. Gravitas, the developer of the property, profiled their ideal tenants prior to construction and targeted their marketing to them. The shipping container building concept appealed to companies like Huckleberry Roasters, Cart-Driver, and Work & Class. Topo Designs liked the idea so much they’ve put their flagship store.

Shipping container buildings are growing in popularity in both Colorado and the rest of the United States. By integrating used shipping containers into the construction of a building you gain leverage the strength of the container frame and save both time and money by shortening the length of the construction cycle.
