U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)

Denver, Colorado
January 1st 2009

Through a GSA design-build lease-back competition, the DEA sought a new headquarters facility that would serve as an iconic home for the agency, improve its public image, increase site and building security, and consolidate multiple departments and locations. Gensler’s winning design addressed all of these goals with a striking four-story, steel-and-glass LEED-NC® Silver certified building. Highly efficient, the building incorporates a traditional speculative office structural model that accommodates a flexible interior, leveraging maximum lease rates and ensuring a future exit strategy for the building’s developer.
