Snyder Building Construction Completes $1.8M Adaptive Reuse Project

28,000-Square-Foot Former Englewood Lighting Outlet Gets Major Rehaul.

Denver, CO, June 07, 2019 --( Snyder Building Construction announces completion of the $1.8M renovation of the old lighting outlet in Englewood, Colorado at 3400 South Broadway. The 100-year-old building now bolsters exposed ceilings, glass storefronts and new offices. The renovation, built by Snyder Building Construction and designed by ArcWest Architects, features significant upgrades to all levels, a new 6,750-square-foot finished office and nearly 21,500 square feet of leasable restaurant and retail space on South Broadway.

“The age of the building presented some fun challenges,” says Rich Snyder, owner of Snyder Building Construction. “We think future tenants who take advantage of this high-visibility corner location will enjoy the vast open structure and amount of natural light through these upgrades.”

The former lighting outlet had many other identities including Wagner’s patio furniture store and JCPenney. After a near full demolition of the interior, the renovations created open and airy leasable space along the main level and mezzanine, along with a fully occupiable basement level.

“We wanted to preserve the historic charm of the old building,” says Kevin Anderson, architect and founding partner at ArcWest Architects. “Purposeful reuse allowed us to maintain the bones of the building while transforming for the modern day.”

Snyder Building Construction partnered with the building owners in the Colorado C-PACE funding process to support their energy savings and resource efficiency efforts.

Current tenants of 3400 South Broadway include Lincoln Energy Partners, BHS Properties, and Del Rio Royalty Company with available leaseable space for future tenants.
