The LAB


The LAB is an award-winning, 78,000-square-foot, four-story office development located at 17th & Platte Streets in Denver. Confluent Development served as a co-developer on the project along with Brue Capital Partners. The building was sold immediately after its completion and is fully leased to WeWork Communities.

Earning the 2015 Innovative Project of the Year Award by NAIOP Colorado, the development was recognized for its impact initiating Platte Street’s transformation into one of the top development corridors in Denver. Confluent Development realized the value of the re-emerging Platte Street neighborhood, a location that many developers viewed as too far removed from the downtown core for the project to be successful. Through developments such as The LAB, the neighborhood has become a preferred location for young professionals to live, play and work.

Open Studio Architecture served as the architect for the project and Opus Design Build as the general contractor.
