Union Station: 17W Update #2

Two weeks ago in our Update #1 on Holland Partner Group‘s 17W development, we shared with you a new rendering of the project.

Not only are we happy to report that the project’s sleek updated design is the work of Denver-based Davis Partnership, but the good folks at Davis have also provided us with two additional renderings to enjoy.

Here is a view of the project from the corner of 17th and Wewatta, next to RTD’s Wewatta Pavilion:

The development features three 10-story towers rising above a 3-level base. As shown in the image above, two of the towers are parallel to Chestnut and Wewatta, with the third tower spanning the width of the block facing 18th Street. Here is the view from the corner of 18th and Wewatta, with 18th on the right and Wewatta on the left:

Whole Foods is planning a 56,000 square foot flagship store on the ground level facing the 17th Street Promenade. 17W is expected to break ground Spring 2015.


Central Platte Valley: The Confluence Update #4

The old warehouse at the corner of 15th and Little Raven was demolished this morning:

This clears the site for the construction of the 34-story Confluence tower to begin. Our last update (#3) on the project was just a few weeks ago. Here are two updated renderings of the proposed tower via the project architect (Gromatzky Dupree & Associates) website:

We’ll post our next update when full excavation for the tower’s three levels of underground parking is underway.


Uptown: Alexan Uptown Update #1

Back in March, we announced a new project bringing 372-units to the Uptown neighborhood. As of October 31st, a fence has been put up around the parking lot and workers have started to rip up the asphalt.

As I was shooting some snowy aerial video footage at Benedict Fountain Park today, I stumbled across a frame that perfectly highlights the project site. You can clearly see how large of an impact this project is going to have in the neighborhood as it’s taking up the entire half block. The project site is the leftmost parking lot in the photo.

Being kitty corner to One City Block, this part of Uptown is turning into a great, tight-knit urban community!


Union Station: 17W Update #1

Yesterday, we announced that a flagship Whole Foods was coming to Union Station on the ground floor of 17W, a new development by Holland Partner Group. To continue on the good news trend, we have an updated rendering of 17W, courtesy of Inside Real Estate News.

The design of 17W is now sleek and glassy! We, here at DenverInfill, are very excited for this project to break ground!


Flagship Whole Foods Coming to Union Station

Good news for the Denver Union Station neighborhood! According to the Denver Business Journal, Whole Foods will be opening a new 56,000 square foot flagship store at 17th and Wewatta Street. So how is this infill news? If you remember back in June, we announced a new project, 17W, that had an unknown grocery anchor tenant on the ground floor. With the announcement of Whole Foods, this project is coming closer to reality.

As a refresher, here are some preliminary renderings of the project from our announcement post. Developed by Holland Partners, 17W will provide Union Station with 640 apartment units contained in three 13-story buildings which will rise over a retail and parking podium.

According to the article, the Whole Foods is expected to open sometime in 2017 which means we should hopefully see a groundbreaking within the next few months.


Central Downtown: 1401 Lawrence Update #4

Excavation work has begun on 1401 Lawrence, a new 22-story office tower in Central Downtown Denver!

Curtis Park-Five Points: 2460 Welton Update #1

As of recently, the Five Points neighborhood is starting to experience a housing boom, especially along the Welton Street Corridor. Back in June, we announced a new project, going up on the intersection of 25th and Welton Street, that will provide the neighborhood with 96 new units of housing.

Over the past few weeks, the project has broken ground, fences have been put up and excavation has begun. There will be two parts to this project: 14 townhome units and 82 apartment units. According to the site plan, the townhomes will be along Welton towards 24th Street and the apartment building will sit at the intersection of 25th and Welton Street.

Here is a closer look at 2460 Welton, just peeking over the fence.

As I was taking photos of this site, I realized that this project has one of the greatest amenities: a rail station less than a block away. This will be great when you need to catch the D-Line into Downtown Denver! The LEED-Silver project has a long ways to go with an anticipated completion about a year out.


Central Platte Valley: The Confluence Update #3

It’s been almost a year since our Update #2 on The Confluence, the proposed 34-story apartment tower at 15th and Little Raven. In that post, we provided the latest renderings of The Confluence and a detailed explanation behind the project’s site design concept. Since then, the project has been working its way through the development review process with the city while the development team has been finalizing the design.

We’re happy to report that there’s evidence at the site that construction on the tower may be getting underway soon!

In addition to a chain-link fence around the property and some other site prep work, this sign was just installed:

The rendering on the sign appears to be very similar to the rendering in our Update #2 post, with only subtle tweaks apparent to some of the facade elements. We’re waiting to hear back from the developer, so hopefully we’ll have some official news to share with you soon about an upcoming groundbreaking.

In the meantime, we’ll leave you with this spectacular aerial image by our photo-taking guru Ryan Dravitz. The Confluence site is in the dead center of the photograph where an old one-story warehouse and gravel lot sit at the corner of 15th and Little Raven surrounded by the Central Platte Valley’s natural and urban landscapes.
