Galvanize 1.0


Galvanize 1.0

The Nichols Partnership acquired the historic Rocky Mountain Bank Note building with the vision of creating place and building community for entrepreneurs and early-phase tech companies. The historic building, built in 1929, sat vacant in Denver's vibrant Golden Triangle neighborhood after being home to Denver's PS1 elementary school and yearned for a new community purpose. Through mindful adaptive reuse and highlighting the original building character, the Nichols Partnership delivered a community-centric, shared-space office from acquisition to occupancy in 72 days. This was Denver’s first co-working concept which paved the way for the ever-expanding co-working product type.

The Galvanize community quickly took root within the 30,000 SF space and opened its door to create a member-based, co-office community and coding school. With 20' ceilings, wood beams, original brick, skylights that bring loads of natural light, and a cafe open to the public, the building offers a place with character, old-world charm, and cutting-edge technologies and vision.
