225 Colorado provides first-class office space in a historically significant structure. The building was originally built in 1915 for Citizens Savings Bank. CBB occupied the building for almost 100 years.


225 Colorado was was acquired by 225 Colorado TIC in September 2004 and was renovated in 2005. Barker Pacific Group, Inc. (BPG) took over the management of the building simultaneously to the acquisition.

In late 2006 the Citizens Bank vacated over 15,000 RSF of space on the upper floor. BPG immediately began remodeling the vacant space in order to accommodate future tenants and to improve the appearance and functionality of the suites. The fourth floor was reconfigured to allow for multi-tenant lease- up including five spec suites. During 2007 occupancy was increased from 70%, to near 100% at present time.
