More than 50 people gathered on a rainy, June 18 morning to take part in the groundbreaking for the new home of Esprit Homes, a developer and homebuilder whose offices are currently located nearby at 5600 S. Quebec Street in Greenwood Village. In addition to Esprit, the building will house the sixth Colorado location for Collegiate Peaks Bank (CPK). The foundation for the 11,698-square foot, two-story building is already in place and builder Bryan Construction expects to have construction of the building completed by year’s end.
Esprit’s Steve Shraiberg told the crowd that they bought the land from the Colorado Department of Transportation because Esprit has long wanted to have their own building and believed that the location in Landmark was perfect for them and for the bank.
The City of Greenwood Village was well represented at the groundbreaking by Mayor Ron Rakowsky, Mayor Pro Tem George Lantz, and City Council Member Dave Kerber. Lantz said he was “excited to be here” to welcome Esprit and Collegiate Peaks Bank to the area. Kerber said, “This is my district. Welcome. Thank you to our developer. Not everybody gets to build here just because they want to. We want quality development. We look forward to having you here.”
Liam Girard, CPK president, told the crowd, “I have been looking at this site for the past two and a half years and we think it will be very good. We will have 20 to 25 employees at the new Collegiate Peaks Bank-DTC.”
Yanni’s Greek Restaurant provided a delicious buffet, including sautéed eggplant, spanakopita, and eggplant spread with toasted pita triangles. Not to be missed was their signature dessert baklava.
