The flagship office building at I-25 & Belleview Station is designed for Collaboration, Community and Commitment
Denver-based Vectra Bank will celebrate a significant organizational milestone this week with a virtual groundbreaking ceremony designed to mark the start of construction on the bank’s new corporate center at I-25 and Belleview Station. The three-year, multi-million-dollar project represents a significant real estate investment during an uncertain and challenging time.
The 127,000 RSF, nine-story, mixed-use building, scheduled to open in December 2022, will bring together more than 200 employees from across the metro area to serve Vectra’s customers and facilitate the bank’s future growth.
“We’re excited to begin laying the foundation for our new corporate center at I-25 and Belleview,” says Bruce Alexander, CEO of Vectra Bank. “We know this has been a challenging time for many, and we’re confident, and hopeful, in the future of Colorado and we look forward to celebrating the building process with our employees, our customers and our community.”
Prominent within its architecturally distinctive design, the new Vectra Corporate Center will offer expansive views, the latest in energy-efficiency, sustainability and green construction, collaborative spacing for employees, state-of-the-art technology and the utmost attention to health, wellness, safety, accessibility and security. A hallmark feature includes a 4,300 RSF conference center set up to accommodate employee training as well as public events. Beyond four floors of office space and four floors of parking, the Vectra Corporate Center will also house one floor of commercial retail space including a Vectra Bank branch as an amenity for employees as well as the public.
The Vectra Corporate Center will be located across the street from the Belleview Light Rail Station in a vibrant and growing neighborhood of Denver proximate to restaurants, cultural venues, business services and residential options. “We’ve been working with leading real estate development firm Confluent Development and architecture firm Open Studio Architecture to incorporate a number of unique, modern features for our employees and the general public,” continued Alexander. “Throughout this project, we remain committed to our customers, to our employees, to Colorado, and to our shareholders while we confidently move forward to build a corporate center that will serve at the center of our bank – supporting operations, and our brand promise of ‘Big Enough to Count / Small Enough to Care’– today and in the years ahead.”
The groundbreaking, which will be celebrated virtually in accordance with COVID-19 in-person limitations, will include remarks by Vectra Bank and Zions Bancorporation officers, who will point to the bank’s long-time commitment to Denver and the state of Colorado – providing access to capital and financing for small businesses, consumers, and commercial and corporate real estate projects.
