Greetings Greenwich Realty Capital is a New York City-based real estate development and investment firm that focuses on opportunistic real estate investing in major metropolitan areas across the United States. A few years ago, we identified and began working on an opportunity in Denver, Colorado that we believe has extraordinary potential to generate significant value for both the city and for investors. Set on the axis of Denver’s financial district and retail shopping promenade, 650 17th Street is an asset that will help to further catalyze this downtown neighborhood’s growth. With this project, Greenwich Realty Capital has set the stage to have a sustainable presence in Denver for years to come.

Denver: A City On The Rise Ranked #1 by Forbes as the best place for business and career, and home to a robust and growing technology hub with over 660 startups plus a new Amazon campus just 20 minutes from downtown, Denver is on a steady upward trajectory. Private-sector employment has increased by 21% since 2010, 66% of residents hold a Bachelor’s or more advanced degree, and the downtown population has tripled since 2000. Nearly three million square feet of office space is in the planning stages, and the city is wisely investing in making the downtown neighborhood walkable, sustainable, and appealing to its increasingly upscale population. Meanwhile, however, new residential condominium and hospitality projects have not kept pace with demand among people seeking a cosmopolitan urban lifestyle in Denver. It is this gap in the marketplace that Greenwich Realty Capital is filling with a project that is both worldly and perfectly tailored to the unique character of Denver.

650 17th Street: A Transformative Luxury Lifestyle Tower Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Carlos Ott, 650 17th Street in downtown Denver will be the city’s tallest building at 75 stories and will offer its most luxurious lifestyle destination to date. The 1,000,000+ square foot tower will be comprised of 248 luxury condominium residences, a boutique hotel, 22,000 square feet of retail space, and over 500 parking spaces. Residents will enjoy not only possibly the most breathtaking views available in Denver, but also an unprecedented collection of amenities, including multiple terraces and pools, a spa with sauna and steam rooms, and a fitness center. In addition, sporting amenities include a half-court basketball court, a bowling alley, and a game lounge with a pool table, foosball, and shuffle board. Children will enjoy a playroom with a custom climbing gym. Bicycle storage, pet grooming, day care, art consultation, and butler service are among many other planned offerings.

We invite you to read through this booklet to learn more about 650 17th Street, and reach out to us personally to discuss this extraordinary property in greater detail. We are scheduled to break ground in the fall 2018.

Crown has crafted a vertically integrated model offering development underwriting and due diligence services coupled with professional services such as architecture, engineering, code consulting and expediting.

With a core concentration in the tristate NYC metro area, Crown has worked on over 10,000 residential units during the recent residential development boom.

In this role, Michael was active in every aspect of the field: Design, Engineering, Municipal Legalization and On-Site Construction Management.
