Recap: Market Station Tour
Attendees participated in a walking tour of Market Station, a full city block of retail, residential and office space in a bustling area of downtown. We explored the project from a development and architectural perspective, and gained insight into the thoughtful design process. Tour-goers learned how the project team was inspired by the history of the block when envisioning the brick façade, Arcade and Paseo features. Roger Pecsok, Continuum Partners, and Dennis Gulseth, DGI03, highlighted key elements that set Market Station apart in terms of design, amenities and placemaking.
About the building: Market Station comprises almost an entire city block, bounded by 16th, 17th, Market and Blake Streets. The site was purchased in 2015 from the City of Denver and RTD and was part of Continuum Partners’ involvement as co-master developers of the Union Station Transit Hub and Neighborhood redevelopment. The 370,000 square foot project, developed and delivered as a joint venture with New York-based Clarion Partners, LLC, combines 82,000 square feet of retail, 95,000 square feet of office and 225 residences and a below grade parking garage using innovative mechanical stackers.
About the tour guides: Roger Pecsok, Development Director, Continuum Partners, has coordinated or overseen a wide range of development responsibilities on multiple projects in his more than 20 years with Continuum.
