McGregor Square – Denver, Colorado

General Contractor: Hensel Phelps

Completion Date: 2021

Denver’s Lower Downtown neighborhood has been transformed by the McGregor Square Development, a mixed-use space that opened recently in 2021. Baseball fans eagerly await the evolution of the area southwest of Coors Field along with Denver residents who are simply looking forward to new restaurants, shopping, and a revitalized community atmosphere. Teammates from Encore Electric helped to complete the project design and are managing the electrical construction, life safety systems, and technology solutions including security, access control, networking and audio-visual infrastructure.

This project is essentially the Rockies Entertainment District,” said Ken Cogan, Project Manager for Encore Electric on the project. “It extends the Union Station vibe all the way to Coors Field and merges those two downtown landmarks.”  When complete, the project will boast a 176-room hotel, 104 residences, mixed-use commercial and retail as well as the Colorado Rockies Hall of Fame.

This project has a special place in the heart of many Encore Electric team members and their passion translates to a lot of excitement around this project. Stan Gittens, project manager at Encore Electric, compared the size and complexity of the McGregor Square project to Gaylord of the Rockies. “Construction on both projects started before design was complete, with Encore assisting with the completion of design to help keep the projects within the budgets and schedules already established,” he said.
