A breath of fresh thinking. Discover your space to thrive. Clever themes for a commercial office building that aims to please its tenants and already offers state-of-the-art attractions. Schnitzer West, that is expanding its presence in the Denver area, was on hand to take part in the festivities because of its latest venture with John Madden Company in the Fiddler’s Green Neighborhood located in Greenwood Village. John Madden Company, Cushman & Wakefield, University of Denver, McKinstry, Rocky Mountain Institute and Epicurean Catering outdid themselves for the launch party that unveiled multiple elements of the revitalization of the Fiddler’s Green Neighborhood and getting to Zero Over Time Sustainability Practices. A tour was offered of the 230,000 square feet of office space available soon. Plans were unveiled for the new Fiddler’s View health and entertainment complex and the University of Denver’s inspired-by-art offerings. Live entertainment included yoga practices on the greenbelt and a bevy of female violinists on platforms. In the Madden Museum of Art, private collection artworks by Joseph Raffael were on display. Passed hors-d’oeuvres, food stations and bars were sprinkled throughout the entire level including Mangia Bevi and its patio. Elaborate floral, hedges, lighted signs and special effects enhanced the decor. From the balcony above the atrium, presentations were delivered by John Madden, Dan Ivanoff, DU Chancellor Rebecca Chopp and Blair Madden- Bui.
