Grant Barnhill believes in Denver’s revitalization. As someone who has been managing, developing and investing in the local Real Estate scene for over 30 years, Grant is a veteran of successful transactions and operations including hundreds of millions of dollars worth of apartment, industrial, and office projects. Since 1993 Grant has been at the forefront of Denver’s transforming scene and has built his career upon its buildings and neighborhoods in a way that has positively impacted the local communities. Mr. Barnhill attended New York University and the University of Colorado at Denver, and has been an active donor to numerous local non-profits. He is the founder of the Shift Foundation and lives in Denver with his girlfriend Sibila and their two children Max and Sophia.
In 1987, Grant began as a landlord representative at Fuller & Company, where he developed a unique marketing strategy to negotiate office leases for a portfolio of over a million square feet of commercial office space in the Denver area alone. His clients include the Arco Pension Fund, Wells Fargo Realty, Sun Savings, and the Resolution Trust Corporation, who have helped shape the Denver we know and love today. In 1991 he co-founded Libery Partners, Inc., a full-service tenant representation firm. He’s also provided corporate Real Estate consulting services for some of America’s largest companies including Hormel Foods, RR Donnelly & Sons,
CH2M Hill, and Woodward-Clyde Group, Inc. In 1995, Mr. Barnhill sold his interest in Liberty to form Barnhill Capital, a real estate investment firm where he continued to invest in his good works.
Between 1994 and 2000, Barnhill Capital devoted itself to acquiring properties in central Denver neighborhoods, and Grant’s firm managed due diligence, acquisition, equity placement, interior design, construction management, leasing, marketing, financial reporting, tax reporting, and ultimate disposition of dozens of properties. In 2002, Grant co-founded Boutique Apartments, a multifamily brand in Denver that has rehabilitated and stabilized more than twenty multifamily projects in urban Denver neighborhoods. Under Mr. Barnhill’s supervision, these buildings were completely renovated with a unique brand identity that transformed them from underperforming assets into a remarkable portfolio worth tens of millions in 2014. Since 2021, Grant has repositioned industrial buildings and converted them into personal warehouse units for business owners. These new units have been customized into flexible spaces for RV users, boat owners, collectors, and everyone in between. By offering personal and secure warehouses with unlimited access in Denver, Barnhill Capital has been able to put itself at the forefront of the needs of the expanding local business market.
Shift Workspaces was founded by Grant in 2012 based on a passion for community and a drive to personalize concierge-level services for career professionals. Shift opened its first
location in Denver’s Alamo Placita neighborhood at 4th and Corona Street, it’s second
community in the Golden Triangle in October 2016 and its third location on Main Street in
Downtown Littleton in July 2020. Since then, Shift has become a thriving community of over seven hundred strong, with entrepreneurs from all over the Denver area and beyond. Shift Workspaces continues to be deeply committed to community philanthropy and outreach, and all three Shift locations have produced strong returns for investors and have become important cornerstones of their neighborhoods. As Shift continues to expand its footprint in the Denver market, Mr. Barnhill has also considered regional expansion to bring the opportunities and growth of Shift Workspaces to other parts of the United States.
