Pinkard Construction and Mercantile Commercial, with the assistance and oversight of Coughlin Property Management, LLC completed three capital improvement projects at the Tattered Cover Bookstore building in LoDo. Work included the following:

Core & Shell

The two historic buildings were modified to accommodate future commercial tenants and allow spaces throughout both buildings to be accessed more easily and allow for multiple tenants. The majority of this work was core and shell upgrades and included new stairs, new elevator and new restrooms.

Steam Conversion

Scope included switching heat and domestic hot water from high pressure steam to natural gas-fired boilers. This conversion was fully engineered by MDP Engineering. This work was completed simultaneously with the core and shell.

Tenant Improvements

Future scope may include 31,000 sf of office space that will be available for lease and will require tenant improvements.

Historical Restorations

Pinkard enlisted a historical consultant and collaborated with Denver’s Landmark Preservation Commission to ensure accurate and quality reproduction of historical features.
