With some Seattle roots, the Urban Renaissance Group is looking to expand into the Denver area – with a new executive to help that effort. 

The CRE firm plans to focus on new office, multifamily and hotel development and office acquisitions for this calendar year, and beyond.

Helping helm the initiative, Urban Renaissance Group has added Brad Schmidt to the team. He brings 20-plus years of marketplace experience into the new role, according to a news release:

Brad Schmidt to the post of Managing Director, Denver. He will be responsible for driving growth in development and acquisitions and overseeing the company’s current holdings in his new role. 

URG currently has four existing projects in Denver:

  • Market Center – a 121,000 square foot brick and beam commercial office and retail building in downtown Denver purchased in 2015 that stitches together five historic buildings
  • 2301 Blake – a 55,000 square foot historic office and retail building located near downtown Denver in the Ballpark District
  • 2399 Blake – a 70,000 square foot, one-story former warehouse converted to office space
  • 100 Speer – a 100,000 square foot, three-story office and broadcast-studio including 198 parking spaces acquired in 2017, providing alternative space and filming studios near downtown Denver’s central business district – also home to the Denver FOX Studio for FOX31 KDVR and Channel 2.
