Managing Partner Thomas List spoke with Denver Business Journal reporter Jensen Werly about the firm’s decision to move its Denver office to a new building, The Current, in RiNo.
The interview was featured in a Denver Business Journal article, Denver Law Firm Signs on as First Tenant in New RiNo Office Building, was published on January 13. An excerpt from the article is below.
An under-construction office building in Denver's River North Art District just secured its first tenant – an unusual one for the popular RiNo neighborhood.
The Current is a 238,000-square-foot office building at 3615 Delgany St. that is being developed by Schnitzer West. At the beginning of the month, Moye White LLP, a Denver law firm, signed on as its first tenant.
Moye White committed to a 42,527-square-foot headquarters lease across the 11th and 12th floors of the 12-story building. The project is slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2023 and Moye White is expected to take occupancy in May 2023. The building broke ground in May 2021.
Moye White is not just the first tenant to sign at The Current, it’s the first professional services firm to commit to RiNo – a neighborhood better known for its breweries and tech companies.
But Tom List, managing partner at Moye White, said the firm is no stranger to going in unusual directions.
“Moye White had a reputation of being pioneers when we moved to our current location in [Lower Downtown],” List said. The company is currently on the sixth floor of 1400 16th St. “It was not popular at that time. At the time, people would scratch their heads and say, ‘Why would a professional services firm go there?’ But as soon as we went, everyone followed. It became popular. We’re on the cutting edge and feel there will be a wave of professional services that will follow.”
