What used to be the Catholic Charities office in Sunnyside is now a mixed-use development.

HM Capital redeveloped the building and surrounding parking lots into a project called Block Forty45, which includes both residential and commercial space.

Located at 4045 Pecos St., the development includes 33 rowhomes and office and retail space.

The first floor of the building has 10 private offices and two retail spaces leased — to a cycle bar and a brewery.

Twenty-one co-working offices occupy the second floor with "hot" and permanent desks.

According to Nina Khosarvi, community director of Block Forty45, more than 16 companies have already committed to the co-working space.

The 33 rowhomes have broken ground, and will be available for pre-leasing in the fall.

“Nestled in between the Highlands, LOHI, and downtown, we couldn’t imagine a better spot to open up Block Forty45 than Sunnyside," Khosarvi said. "With the neighborhood’s eclectic mix of historical bungalows, modern homes, and new commercial developments, we think that Sunnyside is without a doubt, Denver’s next up-and-coming neighborhood."

Khosarvi said that the area offers residents a place to live, work and play without the "hassle" of going downtown.

"With the sense of community at the heart of everything we do, our focus is to help companies in our building connect, grow and thrive," she added.

The community opens its doors Tuesday.
