New development stands out in downtown Castle Rock

The Move office space features architecture unique to historic area

The Move, a recently completed development in downtown Castle Rock, brings a wave of modern architecture to the historic area.

“The building is a very unique design,” said Doug Decker, vice president of White Construction Group.

The $9.9 million project came to life through a design-build contract between White Construction and Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture of Denver.

The Move office space hopes to attract both tech companies and new or expanding businesses, a spokeswoman said. It also acts a venue for local businesses to host meetings and events.

White Construction is a Colorado-based commercial general construction firm now headquartered in the building. They partnered with Barker Rinker Seacat, Decker said, for their modern and distinct building designs.

"We are excited about occupying the msot unique office space currently available in Castle Rock," Tim White said, President of White Construction Group.

The office space sits at the corner of Sixth and Jerry Streets, near businesses like the VCA Douglas County Animal Hospital and the Hideaway Bar & Grill.

Visible to travelers along I-25, it is tucked in the northwest corner of downtown, one block from the frequented Wilcox Street.

The Move fills a once-vacant lot that went unused for years, Decker said. The property simply is a good location to build on in Castle Rock, he said.

The four-story building features 50,000 square feet of rentable space and more than 70 parking spaces available to the public after business hours.

“We're excited that there will be more parking available for our community as a result of this great new addition,” Castle Rock spokeswoman Caroline Kipp said.

The town assisted with the project financially to score more public parking. In exchange for a loan, The Move will lease Castle Rock the spaces for a nominal fee, she said.

So far, six businesses have made The Move home, leaving room for about four more, Decker said.

On the second floor of the two-level parking garage, which is beneath the building, are electric-vehicle charging stations.

But that's not the only tech savvy element to the building.

Atop The Move is the first system of solar panels use in a downtown building. Approximately 270 panels cover more than 8,600 square feet of rooftop. The solar energy offsets about 20 percent of electricity consumption, according to a White Construction Group news release.

“It's unlike anything in Castle Rock,” Decker said.
