Steam on the Platte Breaks Ground – By next summer, two abandoned buildings on the banks of the South Platte River will be converted into office space for tech companies, creative businesses and a restaurant. A 65,000-square-foot warehouse — the largest brick-and-timber structure available for redevelopment in the city — will be transformed into the office space for tech companies and creative businesses, and a 6,000- square-foot former gas station with a bowstring roof will be converted into restaurant space. NIMBL, a technology consulting firm, has signed on as the anchor tenant for the warehouse building.
