Broomfield, Colorado — Construction Manager/General Contractor Pinkard Construction Company has topped out the 8181 Arista Place project, a new mixed-use office building in Broomfield.

Located in the Arista Development, 8181 Arista Place is a five-story office facility adjacent to its sister office property 8001 Arista Place, both of which are located near the 1STBANK Center. The 8181 property is 90,000 sf with structural steel and concrete shear cores, an exterior skin of structural stud framing, and combinations of glass, brick, stone, metal panels and stucco. The first floor is retail and restaurant, and floors 2 – 5 are office space.

The roof and exterior skin are complete, window installation is underway and interior finishes are beginning. Developer Wiens Capital Management’s Senior Project Manager, Joe Zepeda: “Building quality is important to us and Pinkard’s window and storefront framing and waterproofing processes resonated with me. Multiple individuals sign-off on every single window opening – a quality check for every single window opening. It impresses me that someone in the construction industry would incorporate that kind of a quality check. I’m seeing evidence of this attention to quality all over the project.”

The project is on schedule for a July finish. Office and retail space are currently available for leasing. 

Construction cost is $12.6 million; or approximately $140 per square foot. gkkworks is the architect. The owner is Arista Place II, LLC.

Pinkard constructed the 8001 Arista Place office mixed-use facility in 2008 which has been 100% occupied for several years. Wiens Capital Management subsequently awarded the contract of the 8181 building to Pinkard and construction began in early June 2015.

The overall Arista development will feature 600,000 to 800,000 sf of retail space, approximately 1,500 units of multi-family residential, and approximately 200,000 to 400,000 sf of office space. A considerable portion of the project will have “urban” architecture, with minimal setbacks, and on-street parking.
