This is a good sign for downtown Denver and the return to the office as the law firm of Sherman & Howard expands their new downtown office by 20% after only being in the space a little over a year.

Sherman & Howard Expands Office Lease at Block 162


Only 15 months after their initial occupancy at Block 162, the office tower’s first major tenant Denver-based law firm Sherman & Howard L.L.C. has expanded their current lease of nearly 60,000 square feet by more than 20 percent to include an additional 12,049 square feet.

Located at 675 15th Street, between Welton and California Streets in downtown’s Central Business District, Block 162 is a 30–story, 596,295–square–foot, Class A speculative office building developed by Patrinely Group that is certified LEED Gold Core and Shell.

“As many firms navigate a return–to–office strategy, Sherman & Howard’s decision to expand their lease at Block 162 so quickly after their initial occupancy in December 2021 reaffirms our strategy to build the region’s premier office building, and validates our conviction that a flight to quality will successfully attract employees back to the office and reinforce positive company culture,” said Patrinely Group’s Rocky Mountain Region Senior Vice President David Haltom. “At Block 162, we have delivered cutting–edge office space in a sustainable, energy–efficient, and well–ventilated building that offers best–in–class HVAC, flexible, column–free floor plates for optimal customization, and first–class indoor/outdoor amenities and access to light and air to take advantage of Denver’s great climate.”
