Catalyst Health-Tech Innovation in Denver, Colorado, is a first-of-its-kind project created to be an industry aggregator. It hosts a diverse and complementary mix of startups, Fortune 500 health care companies, law firms, tech companies and more. The seven-story, 190,000-square-foot structure opened in July 2018, with plans for a second building in the future.
The goal of this building is to create what its designers call “serendipitous collisions” – interactions between people from different companies where they exchange meaningful ideas. When The Beck Group designed the building, they planned for these interactions to occur anywhere in the building – e.g. in the building’s open atrium lobby, going up or down one of the side staircases, in the community kitchen, working out in the fitness facility or grabbing a cup of coffee.
