A sub has filed an intent to lien with the property owner but did not send it to me as the GC nor the tenant.

Great question. Yes, when hired by someone other than the owner of the property, a Notice of Intent to Lien must be sent to both the property owner and the project's general contractor under CRS § 38-22-109(3).
However, the Colorado mechanics lien statute does not state that a tenant must also be given a copy of the Notice of Intent to Lien (though, it might be beneficial to send to the tenant as well if the project was a tenant improvement).
As mentioned in this article, failure to send a Notice of Intent to Lien, as required, could result in the loss of the right to file a mechanics lien.
