Law Week Colorado published an article about Haynes and Boone, LLP’s plans to move its Denver office next year to Block 162, the city’s newest skyscraper. The article extensively quotes Dan Malone, administrative partner of the Denver office.
Here is an excerpt:
… The firm will move into the 30-story office tower in the third quarter of 2022.
According to Dan Malone, administrative partner of the firm’s Denver office, the impetus for the move is simple: their lease is up. The firm had a five-year sublease agreement for its current space at 1050 17th Street. With that set to expire in July, Haynes Boone looked for a more permanent home.
Malone said the firm wanted to find a “state-of-the-art, premier, centrally located” space that could attract and retain talent and be used to entertain and support current and prospective clients. They also looked for a space that would lend itself to collaboration.
“As a culture at Haynes and Boone, we’re very collaborative in nature. And I think the team that’s been assembled in Denver thrives with the collaborative nature,” Malone said. “Having a space that celebrates that and gives us all a platform to collaborate is of utmost importance to us.”
Block 162’s amenities help facilitate that collaboration, he added. The building’s 11th floor amenity area has a fitness center, a social lounge and conference and meeting spaces. An outdoor sky terrace features a roof garden, exercise lawn, fire pits, seating areas and a conference table. The building will also have a restaurant and coffee shop.
“That creates incentive to utilize an office space,” Malone said of the building’s amenities. He added the space is “not just square footage that you close the door and stand behind, but it’s a place that employees are attracted to and actually want to come in to work.”
The building’s other draws include the fact that it’s a “first-generation space,” Malone said, allowing the firm to build the office to fit its needs. It also has some of the best security in the city, he added, which will keep employees and their files safe.
