Greg Knott and Zach Smith of Unique Properties / TCN Worldwide were the transaction brokers for this transaction.
The Property, a 6,230 square foot office / retail building was built in 1953 and has been utilized as studio and gallery space for the last twelve years. Lawrence Argent will use the space as his studio and is currently waiting on a city permit before his move in.

Denver creatives are planted all around the city, though the Art District on Santa Fe continues to raise the bar for an artistic community with a high level of physical density, cultural assets and tourist appeal. Lawrence’s studio will be an asset to this growing community,” he concluded.
