DENVER -- The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announces the transfer of deed/title following the sale of the property known as 9th & Clermont- Denver located at 1055 Clermont Street via a public auction that ended on August 9th.
The online auction garnered a winning bid of $41.25 million. The property, an 8.265 +/- acre parcel with five buildings and an 8-floor parking structure totaling 775,718 +/- gross square feet is located near the intersection of E. Colfax Ave. and Colorado Blvd., next to the 9+CO development. The property was sold “as is” and there are no use restrictions imposed by the Government, allowing the grantee, GME I, LLC, to consider various potential reuse options, subject to state and local regulations.
