The Property is also located just a few blocks from historic Larimer Square, with its eclectic collection of shops and eateries.  In addition, tenants have easy access to the free MetroRide downtown circulator that allows them to reach many downtown amenities.  The Property also offers convenient access to Interstate 25, given the location just three blocks from Union Station, access to light rail, bus and commuter rail services.

CIM has been actively involved in Denver since 2015 when it acquired the former University of Colorado Health Sciences Center with Continuum Partners to co-develop the 26-acre site into 9th & Colorado, an urban infill mixed-use project.  Recently the first retail tenants were announced, including a 10-screen AMC Theatres® that will anchor one of the 12-blocks of the project.  Earlier this month, Theo, the first residential component of 9th & Colorado, welcomed its first residents to the 275-unit, nine-story apartment building.   A second residential building of 319 units is currently under construction.  LoDo Towers is CIM’s first acquisition in downtown Denver.
