JLL Moves Monfort Companies Closer to Home Plate

Firm Leases and Customizes Space in Historic Building to be Nearer to Coors Field

DENVER, May 9, 2017 - JLL today announced the company has secured a prime location for Monfort Companies in Denver's Ballpark neighborhood across the street from Coors Field. Monfort Companies, which owns a number of Colorado-based organizations, most notably a portion of the Colorado Rockies, has leased 4,000 square feet of space on the 2nd floor of 1962 Blake Street, where Kenneth Monfort and his team will host their Denver operation.

Outside of baseball, Monfort Companies most prominently operates within the realms of real estate development, private investment, cattle and energy. Although Greeley, Colorado is a more obvious home for Kenneth Monfort and his team, "Denver is only a stone's throw from home, and happens to be where we have found many friends in the industries in which we conduct our daily work," says Monfort, "our new location allows our office to catch a few innings throughout the week, which we anticipate will be a good thing!"

1962 Blake Street is a well-lit brick and timber building, built in 1892 and previously unoccupied for several years which spurred the decision to renovate the existing interior. Keeping with modern trends, the space now features an open and collaborative design, exposed original brick structure, no walled offices and glass conference rooms. Additionally, a bar has been installed that will include iced coffee and beer on tap, designed for in-office socializing. In addition to the customized workspace, the building provides Monfort Companies with easy and direct access on and off I-25, and is walk-able to all of the fine restaurants, entertainment, public transportation and other amenities LoDo has to offer.

David Shirazi, JLL represented Monfort Companies in the transaction. NAI Shames Makovsky represented the landlord.
