Flight, a new office building located in Denver’s RiNo Arts District, provides 140,000 sf of fully-furnished office suites for early-stage and emerging companies. The building is currently home to the 80,000-sf Boa Technologies’ headquarters. It also provides space for smaller companies such as The Nature Conservancy, Lark Burger, and Denver Design Build.

Flight is comprised of a two-story, 100,000-sf base (where the Boa Technologies headquarters is located) that supports a shifted, faceted two-story linear structure above with ends that extend beyond the base. The upperlevels house 36 speculative office suites, furnished with Opendesk furniture systems, with shared conference rooms and phone booths. The offices overlook and open onto terraces surrounded by the building’s 13,000-sf green roof, which is one of the largest in Colorado.

Green roof spaces open up to rolling hills, tree groves, and a 1700-kilowatt solar photovoltaic array that offsets about 20% of the building’s electricity use. The building includes a two-story atrium, outdoor meeting spaces, a 100-bike storage facility, and a 1,100-sf art studio connected to the lobby.
