DENVER-First Industrial Realty Trust is capping the first of four buildings in a 146,000-sf project at Westminster’s Technology Center.

The four “flex” buildings are being constructed along W. 124th Avenue. Most buildings of this type–with flexible interior finishing–use tilt-up concrete on top of its steel frame. Each building will range in size from 33,500 sf to 40,000 sf.

What sets this development apart is that Westminster is getting a softer look than is usually found in an industrial complex. General contractor Lakewood-based Pinkard Construction is using masonry block for the exterior to give it more “neighborly” look.

Chicago-based First Industrial Realty is one of the nation’s largest industrial REITs, with a portfolio of more than 75 million sf.
