RiNo firm to revamp law offices

A Denver law firm is putting on the developer’s cap for a new RiNo office project.

Employment law firm Rathod Mohamedbhai is weeks away from starting a 7,000-square-foot renovation at the Laundry on Lawrence at 27th Avenue and Lawrence Street. The lawyers-turned-landlords are remodeling the building with plans to lease space to other small law firms.

“We really like the RiNo, Curtis Park neighborhood,” said Siddhartha Rathod, a partner at the firm. “It’s a really great neighborhood with a great community feeling, so that was a great place to invest in and move to.”

The Laundry on Lawrence is a 21,000-square-foot building with about 14,000 square feet of office space currently leased out to some 30 tenants, Rathod said.

Rathod Mohamedbhai bought the property, located at 2701 Lawrence St., in December for $3.09 million and moved its own office in shortly thereafter.

The project is expected to be finished by September, Rathod said. His own firm will take 2,000 square feet in the newly renovated wing of the building, and he said he hopes to lease the remaining 5,000 square feet to other law firms.Now the law firm wants to add a rooftop deck to the one-story building and renovate the remaining 7,000 vacant square feet into 15 small offices with four conference rooms.
