Nick Kitaeff

Full Name: Nick Kitaeff

Company:  Confluent Development

Title:  Development Director

Education/Professional Certifications:

  • I studied International Business & Public Policy at the University of Denver. I credit my time spent in a study abroad program in Rome with my passion for travel, food and cultural diversity that I try to inject into my retail projects.

How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 11

CRE Work Experience:

  • I'm responsible for directing the entire development process "soup-to-nuts" from site identification & acquisition, programming & planning, lease negotiation, entitlements, financing and construction for complex retail, mixed-use and multifamily projects in Colorado.

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? I have always been motivated by the opportunity to create best-in-class projects that are engaging from a human perspective and positively impact communities. Creating memorable & innovative places for businesses to thrive continues to motivate me.

Proudest professional achievement thus far: I'm extremely proud of the Confluent team for completing our boldest mixed-use project to date - Exchange at Boulevard One. Delivering this retail/office project amidst a global pandemic was a challenge, but the team stayed committed to our guiding principles and focused on creating a positive impact in the community.

Aspirations/Goals: I've volunteered my time on the board of DMCAR for 3 years where I learned how to be an effective leader from Katie Kruger. I have dedicated the last 5 years to enhancing the NAIOP Mentor Program, where I continue to focus on improvement and enhancement to support our developing leaders and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Community Outreach/Volunteerism: Raising money for prostate cancer awareness and research and past involvement with open adoption agencies in Colorado.

Personal Interests: I'm an unabashedly proud Boston sports fan as well as a passionate fan of Liverpool Football Club. I'm also an avid skier - the combination creates some busy weekends trying to fit in skiing and early Premier League mornings.

Megan Kranichfeld 

Full Name: Megan Kranichfeld 

Company:  Prime West

Title:  Vice President of Industrial Development 

Education/Professional Certifications:

  • I graduated from University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Business Administration with a Real Estate Certificate. 

How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 7

CRE Work Experience:

  • I have recently started as vice president of industrial development with Prime West and will be starting an industrial development program for the company. Through my previous experience, I have been involved in high scale industrial projects totaling over 1 million square feet of industrial product developed across Colorado, and led the leasing efforts for those spaces that are now occupied by name brand tenants. In the last 12 months, I was responsible for the construction commencement of four speculative industrial buildings with a combined value of over $80 million.

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? Commercial real estate has a unique impact on the lives of people in our community. When I first realized that I was interested in a career in real estate, I was thinking about the coffee shops, grocery stores, and apartments that I had lived in and how those every day places had shaped my daily life. That morphed over the years and as I learned more about it, my interest grew towards industrial development and the impact it has on our daily lives. Industrial space has more of a profound impact than some realize, warehouses are where companies can provide better inventory, quicker delivery to your front step, and overall faster and better services for people in our communities. 

Proudest professional achievement thus far: My proudest professional achievement has been my continued involvement and commitment to various NAIOP programs, including the developing leaders mentor program as well as the national forum platform. It is so exciting and rewarding to meet peers and colleagues and to have the opportunity to stay connected with those people through NAIOP. I am inspired by all of the members who are such high achievers in an incredibly competitive industry. Many of my good friendships started through NAIOP! 

Aspirations/Goals: My goals for the future are to remain curious and continue learning to continue to progress forward in this industry. That immediately includes building a successful industrial development program for Prime West! 

Community Outreach/Volunteerism: I enjoy volunteering my time as a mentor to college students, particularly young women who are considering a career in the commercial real estate industry. I am also actively involved with the CU Real Estate Center Alumni group. Adopt-a-Family is a program that I have been a part of during the holidays over the years by providing Christmas gifts for families in need, that is always such a rewarding way to give back and make a direct impact in the community. 

Personal Interests: I love everything that Colorado has to offer during all seasons, so it's not a surprise that I love to hike and ski. More recently, that has been a lot of hiking and spending time exploring the mountains with our 1 year old lab, Archie. I'm doing the snow dance for some more snow for all of the skiers this year!

How many years have you been in commercial real estate? 10

CRE Work Experience:

  • Capital markets investment brokerage, Asset Management, Acquisitions, Commercial Lending, Debt Brokerage including government agency and life insurance company lending, and parking management/consulting and business development. 

What motivated you to get involved in the CRE Industry? I was lucky to be motivated by Buz Koelbel and then Sherm Miller to start exploring the industry over a decade ago. I started to realize how commercial real estate was such an intersection of so many areas of business that I was interested in. I became fascinated with how living and breathing commercial assets could intersect so many areas of our economy both at a micro and macro level, and wanted to be a part of its growth. CRE is such a people business in every way and I realized what an incredible community there was to work with within Metro Denver. Once I found a few areas to focus on, I was hooked. 

Proudest professional achievement thus far: At home, it's my two kids.  At work, it's the relationships that I have made, no doubt. I am extremely fortunate and proud of the wonderful people that I have met and worked with along the way. I would not be anywhere without them, personally and professionally, and only hope to continue to give back to others the same way.  In a way, achievements can only be statistics or a source of pride when you think about those that helped you get there. 

Aspirations/Goals: I recently took on a role to expand Denison Parking, a national management and consulting firm,  throughout Colorado.  I hope to continue to grow our reach in this market and ultimately show our clients the significant amount of value that our platform can bring to a wide variety of projects and commercial asset classes. 

Personal Interests: Golf, Vail, Football Saturday's, Lake Michigan and chasing after my 4 and 7-year old boys.

Block 162 

Featuring Block 162, Class-A Office Space Designed by Gensler

By the Patrinely Group
Posted on November 29, 2021

When construction commenced on Block 162 in June 2018, the new development’s intended level of quality ensured that the caliber of downtown Denver’s office space would never be the same. Developed by a joint venture comprised of Patrinely Group and USAA Real Estate and completed in June 2021, Block 162 is a 30-story, 606,000-square-foot, Class A speculative office building that boasts state-of-the-art office space and amenities and provides tenants a true 21st century work environment.

Designed by Gensler, Block 162 includes 20 floors of office space on Levels 11–30. The façade is comprised of an all-glass curtainwall system, offering views of the Front Range from every office floor through 10-foot-clear windows. The average floor plate size is 29,800 rentable square feet, designed to feature zero interior columns within the office floorplates. The building includes more than 9,000 rentable square feet of ground-floor retail in three retail lease spaces. The project offers parking at a ratio of 1.7 cars per 1,000 rentable square feet, with parking spaces located within three underground parking levels and a 10-floor, above-grade podium garage. Most recently, Block 162 achieved Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) v4 Gold Core and Shell status. It is the largest project in Colorado to receive this status, as well as the largest LEED v4 BD+C: CS project in Colorado of any level.

One of the most compelling aspects of the building is the 11th floor amenity area dedicated exclusively to the building’s tenants, with a fitness center, social lounge, and conference and meeting space. This interior amenity space provides direct access through over 110 linear feet of operable glass walls to the building’s outdoor sky terrace, which includes a manicured roof garden and a dedicated outdoor exercise lawn, as well as seating areas, an outdoor conference table, and two fire pits. The fitness center features expansive operable glass walls that open out to the exercise lawn, along with a dynamic indoor exercise area complete with stretching areas, cardio stations, free weights, and men’s and women’s locker rooms with private showers. The indoor social lounge also features expansive operable glass walls that open to the outdoor fire pits and roof garden, offering casual seating and views of downtown. Finally, the 2,800 square feet of indoor conference and prefunction meeting space is AV-equipped for tenant events and meetings – and connects via operable glass walls to a covered area featuring an all-weather outdoor conference table with seating.

Patrinely Group enlisted the help of interior architect Mayfield and Ragni Studio (MaRS) and Denver-based arts consultant NINE dot ARTS to create a one-of-a-kind experience in Block 162’s refined and modern corporate environment. As a result of this partnership, the art collection at Block 162 spotlights the dynamic talent of Denver’s thriving art scene and showcases immersive work that nods to the Mile High City’s urban, modern, and progressive development, and pays tribute to the natural elements of the surrounding mountains. One of the most immersive pieces on display is Cedar Point Reeds, a moving sculpture developed exclusively for Block 162 by BREAKFAST, a Brooklyn-based kinetic artistry group. The movement of the sculpture is governed by real-time data readings which visualize the dynamism of the wind and wind energy production occurring at the Cedar Point Wind Farm located 80 miles east of Denver in eastern Colorado. 

As leasing activity picks up, law firm Sherman & Howard, the first company to secure space in the building, has settled in 60,000-square-feet of space on floors 23 and 24. Patrinely Group and USAA Real Estate expect to announce multiple new leases in the coming months and continue to see interest from law, tech, energy sector, and financial firms – including firms with current Denver presence, and also companies looking to expand and relocate into Colorado.  

In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, this activity supports the confidence of Patrinely Group that Denver is one of the most vibrant markets in the country. The city provides a unique offering to office tenants, which has been well received by corporations from all over the country – with the building offering a clean-slate platform on which tenants can create the corporate culture they desire for their employees. “Block 162 is a testament to the trends we are seeing with urban dwellers and workers,” said Patrinely Group’s Rocky Mountain Region Vice President David Haltom.  “In combination with an accelerating flight to quality, there is an increasingly blurred line between personal life and work life, and Block 162’s office space and amenities make for a great opportunity for tenants to take advantage of those trends.

The Current, River North, Class-A Office Building

By the Schnitzer West
Posted on November 29, 2021

It’s a tall order to promise building tenants a well-designed project that promotes tenant health, wellbeing, and productivity. Especially one that is innovative to be a culture-ready workspace with significant input from local entrepreneurs, CEOs, HR leaders, and talent and one forward-thinking enough to offer a leading-edge view on the world via state-of-the-art “smart” windows. 

Such a vibrant environment is emerging in the form of the Class-A 238,000-square-foot The Current, River North (The Current), a joint venture partnership between Schnitzer West, LLC, one of the West Coast’s leading real estate investment, development and property management companies, and Craft Companies, LLC, a Denver-based, multi-directional real estate firm. The 12-story Class-A office building is located at 3615 Delgany St., in Denver's vibrant and sought-after River North Art District (RiNo).

The Current’s “ecosystem of innovation” design ethos is a strong fit for Denver’s RiNo neighborhood. It offers multiple state-of-the-art amenities, including smart windows from View, Inc. View Smart Windows employ artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically evaluate and adjust window tint to optimize natural light and tenants’ unique vista of the outdoors, all while helping regulate temperature and glare. 

The benefits of natural light in workplace productivity are becoming more widely known. One study discovered that employees working next to View Smart Windows – while dramatically adding to the building’s light-filled and sleek aesthetic – “experienced half as many headaches, slept 37 minutes longer each night and improved their cognitive function by 42 percent.” 

This is the second private office development in the state of Colorado to utilize View Smart Windows. The first and only other project in the state to implement the View Smart windows was Schnitzer West’s mixed-use, elegant, tiered development, Civica Cherry Creek, situated in the desirable Cherry Creek neighborhood.

"At Schnitzer West, we recognize that intelligent design and world-class amenities are not only aesthetically important but also why tenants choose our buildings over those of our competitors. Tenant’s ability to attract and retain talent is a significant contributing factor to their success,” said Kyle Flippen, development manager for the Denver market at Schnitzer West. 

Schnitzer West and Craft Companies purchased the RiNo site in March 2019 and began construction of The Current in April 2021. Designed by Davis Partnership Architects, the site includes eight floors of office space, two levels of underground parking, and four levels of above-grade podium parking with car charging stations and secure bike storage. The Davis Partnership design includes extensive use of architectural glass, which frames the top two floors of the building. These levels offer private amenities for tenants, including Schnitzer West's signature "great room," working and leisure space, and a rooftop terrace so that tenants can enjoy views of downtown and the Front Range mountains.

The Current will offer a vibrant environment for an engaged workforce, with its proximity to multi-family housing, upscale hotels and retail space, and public transportation, including the RTD A-Line station, offering increased flexibility for commuters and business travelers to and from Denver International Airport.

“We take great pride in contributing to the further development of RiNo and Denver's continued success and economic growth," said Lucas Schornstein, senior investment manager for Schnitzer West. "There is a growing demand from tenants for increased availability of high-quality, state-of-the-art, forward-thinking Class-A office space in this culturally vibrant hub. The Current will help attract, retain and empower major talent in this region.”


6900 Layton Building

Featuring 6900 Layton, NAIOP's 2021 Office Development of the Year

Posted on September 6, 2021
By Shawn Donohoe, Senior Business Development Manager, The Weitz Company, LLC

When 6900 Layton broke ground in the dynamic Belleview Station development back in 2018, Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock was quoted to say, “Belleview Station is well on its way to redefining how people can work, shop, dine and live all in one place – making it a signature asset for economic development and underscoring Denver’s position as a leading city for business success. We’re proud to celebrate the latest premier office space to take shape at one of Denver’s many transit-oriented development sites.”

Completed in September 2020, this sleek 385,000-square-foot Class AA Design Build and it’s custom, glass curtain certainly live up to expectations. Named Office Development of the year during the NAIOP Colorado “Best of the Best” in 2020. The project is located just 200 feet from the light-rail platform and the building rises 15 stories, bringing a stunning beauty to the office park by reflecting the skies of Denver and providing spectacular views for those inside the building.

6900 Layton LobbyThe project was a design-build partnership between Prime West as the developer, Weitz as the General Contractor, and Gensler’s Denver studio. Throughout thechallenges of the pandemic, the team remained focused on safety and integrity. As Jim Neenan, president and CEO of Prime West said in the Colorado Real Estate Journal in August 2020“Together as a team, we have pushed expectations on innovation and schedule. The result will be an elegant, progressive, mixed-use office asset further animating what is becoming a dynamic node on the southeast light-rail line.”

Bruce Porter, Executive Vice President and General Manager of The Weitz Company Rocky Mountain Business Unit, also believes the working relationships were key to the success of the project, saying “6900 Layton was a special project. I was continuously impressed by the attention to detail and the commitment from each of our team members, the design-build team, and our trade partners to maintain great working relationships across the project. Our Weitz office is located near 6900 Layton, and our team feels a great sense of accomplishment when we drive by the project each day.”

6900 Layton at SunsetStructurally, the building is a hybrid, with the building frame accommodating garage parking (1,250 parking spaces) on the first five levels. A central cast-in-place concrete core is surrounded by a precast podium coming out of the ground for five stories, capped by a structural steel tower rising to the full height. On level one, 15,000 square feet of retail is joined by a large tenant-accessible fitness center and bike storage to encourage alternatives to auto-centric transportation.

Another unique feature is the integration of two completely independent mechanical systems. A primary central plant, located on the roof, serves floors 7 through 15, while a water source heat pump system is used on the lower six floors. The dual-process solution affords overall savings in both first costs and long-term operations.

6900 Layton was named the NAIOP Colorado Office Development of the Year in 2021.  The project also achieved LEED Gold and was a 2020 Regional Award Winner of “Excellence in Subcontracting” from the Design-Build Institute of America, Rocky Mountain Region.
