Manufacturer Signs 12-Year Office Lease in Crescent Real Estate's CBD Office Tower at 7171 17th St.
Johns Manville Corp., a leading manufacturer and marketer of building materials owned by Berkshire Hathaway, will keep its headquarters in downtown Denver after renewing for 118,865 square feet of office space
at 717 17th St.
The firm inked a 12-year deal earlier this month to maintain its anchor status and remain the namesake of Johns Manville Plaza, which is part of Crescent Real Estate Holdings's Denver City Center.
The 29-story, 737,431-square-foot, Class A office building
was built in 1978.
Tami Door, president and CEO of the Downtown Denver Partnership, said retaining Johns Manville in the city's central business district kept approximately 400 jobs in the area. The company also has a 325,000-square-foot technical center southwest of Denver that will stay in place.
Bruce Basham, vice president of leasing for Crescent, represented the landlord. Sam Depizzol and Greg Holm of CBRE Group represented the tenant.
