Information Handling Services, international software design and production company, selected Westfield to build its 95,000-square-foot world headquarters facility as well as a 115,000-square-foot office building addition. For both projects, Westfield assembled the architectural, engineering and general contractor teams and oversaw both the core-and-shell and tenant-finish construction. The project is located in Englewood, Colorado.
Copic Companies–comprised of Copic Insurance Company, Copic Financial Services Group, Gadrian Corporation and Practice Quality–provides diversified services to the health care community including insurance coverage, financial services, credentials verification, physician site visits, and medical records reviews. Nearly 75% of Colorado doctors are insured by Copic Insurance Company. Copic contracted to purchase a 100,000-square-foot building begun by Westfield as part of a three building speculative office building campus at the Lowry redevelopment site. The Copic headquarters building, as well as the other Quad buildings, feature redundant power from multiple substations through an ATO switch, a self-healing fiber network and up to 10 watts of power per square foot dedicated for use beyond base building function. Parking is approximately five spaces per 1,000 square feet. Since Copic’s move in, Lowry has continued to grow around them and the Lowry Town Center, with restaurants and other convenience retail, is located immediately adjacent to the building.
Westfield purchased a 670-acre parcel in Greeley, Colorado a few miles east of I-25 to create a major mixed-use project zoned for office, light industrial, commercial, service, entertainment, and a variety of residential uses. The first project within the park enabled State Farm Insurance to relocate from downtown Greeley into a consolidated business park-based campus environment. Westfield successfully negotiated a complex tri-party purchase and development agreement that included State Farm and the City of Greeley. Promontory contains approximately 300 commercial acres and 250 residential acres, as well as master planned parks and open space. The 23-acre “Central Park” has lakes with waterfalls, trails, and an outdoor amphitheater. Financial development mechanisms included bond financing through two different Metro Districts and private financing. State Farm completed construction of a three-building, 500,000 square foot business campus, and Swift and Company purchased a site for an 80,000 square foot regional headquarters building. Today, Westfield has land for sale zoned Colorado’s premier work, play, and live environment over an ongoing 15-year planning horizon. Promontory’s total value at build-out should exceed one billion dollars.
