Another project has made it out of the ground since our Summer 2013 Hole-in-the-Ground census! Today, we are going to head over to the Prospect neighborhood and take a look at the 2100 Delgany project.
As of right now, the concrete podium has been poured and the first elevator core is nearly topped out. Since this will be a 6-story building, we will most likely see timber framing for the other five floors. 2100 Delgany sits on a very uniquely shaped parcel of land and will only occupy the square portion of the lot, leaving a little triangle dirt lot. Even with the open space directly to the north of this project, 2100 Delgany will have a significant impact along Delgany Street.
Here is a little bonus picture I took as I was walking towards 2100 Delgany. Last weekend was crystal clear, before the snow and cold moved in, giving us a spectacular mountain backdrop! (Click for high-resolution greatness!)
There is still a lot of work to be done given its completion isn’t until late 2014. We will check back again in a couple months to see what progress has been made!
Staying in Arapahoe Square, there is another project we haven’t looked at in a long time. In fact, we haven’t done an update on it since its original announcement back in February. The old building on the site was demolished months ago, and the structure has been topped out for a while now. Let’s take a look!
As you can see, this is a very small project while at the same time, it makes a huge impact when it is surrounded by nothing but surface parking lots. Parking for residents will be accessible through the alley with entrances to the building along both 21st and Curtis Street. This building will also feature a rooftop deck which is why the slanted roof does not span across the entire front of the building.
The Curtis Street Lofts will provide the Arapahoe Square neighborhood with 12 rental units and should be complete around late spring!
It has been quite a while, possibly a little too long, since we have checked in at the Renaissance Stout Street Lofts. Back in May, when we last took a look at this project, the underground parking structure was complete and the building had barely risen above street level.
As of Sunday, the apartment building has been topped out for quite some time, the tower crane has been removed, and we can start to see what exterior materials are being used. Here is a view of the Renaissance Stout Street Lofts from the alley side. Access to the underground parking will only be accessible through the alley.
The entrance to the building is along Stout Street and is set back from the sidewalk.
The building occupies almost the entire half block between 21st and 22nd along Stout Street. On the intersection of 21st and Stout, the two-story Urban Peak building occupies the remainder of the block. If you look closely in the second picture, you can see the brick facade has also started to go up!
The Renaissance Stout Street Lofts is a great project in many ways. It gets rid of a very ugly parking lot in Arapahoe Square, where parking lots are in ample supply, and it provides Downtown Denver with some more mixed income housing, which is always in short supply. Out of all of the new apartment units that are under-construction or recently completed, only 5% of those are mixed income units, while the rest are market rate. This project will provide the Arapahoe Square neighborhood with 78-units and should be complete around April.
Today we are going to take a final look at the 1756 Clarkson project in the Uptown neighborhood. 1756 Clarkson is now complete and residents have already begun to move in. Since this is a final update, you can follow our coverage on this project from start to finish by clicking the links below.
New Uptown Project: 1756 Clarkson
Uptown: 1756 Clarkson Update #1
Uptown: 1756 Clarkson Update #2
This apartment building rises a total of 5-stories and is comprised of both brick and metal paneling. The entrance to the parking garage is along the alley with apartment units facing Clarkson Street. Even though this project was just completed, there were already multiple residents moving in as I was taking these photos. I’m sure we will see this fill up quick given our current market!
1756 Clarkson fills in the last gap on both sides of Clarkson Street between 17th and 18th Avenue and is unmistakably one of the largest buildings on the block.
1756 Clarkson is providing the Uptown neighborhood with 60 rental units and cost a total of 6.7 million dollars. Average rent for this building starts around $2 per square foot. Welcome to the Uptown Neighborhood, 1756 Clarkson!
Earlier this month, on DenverUrbanism, we reported that the lighting on the new Commuter Rail train hall canopy was being tested. We weren’t entirely sure if the lighting would be on every night or if we had to wait until the Union Station project was complete. The answer is, the train hall appears to be lit up every night.
I recently took a little photo adventure and decided to take some photos of the canopy. Needless to say, it is very impressive at night and it looks outstanding.
We already know a bunch of infill is going to be built around the the canopy. This will give the train station a great urban feel while still being a very impressive station in between all of the new buildings. Here are some additional shots with The Platform tower rising just to the west of the canopy.
To think, it was just over a year ago we saw the first structural elements of the canopy go up. A lot has happened since then! In case you missed it, make sure you head over to DenverUrbanism for a great in depth tour from inside the canopy!
Back in August we covered a bunch of projects that were still in the ‘hole-in-the-ground’ phase. One of those projects we had a quick snapshot of was the aLoft hotel going in at the corner of 15th and Stout. The old Burger King building has been demolished for quite some time and now we are starting to see some things go vertical!
Let’s head down to the site. Most of the underground work is complete, and the core is finally rising! Right now you are only seeing the underground facilities which do not occupy the whole footprint of the site. The rest of the building, however, will utilize the full site.
Outside of the fence, all you can see right now is the core above street level but I’m sure we will see the rest of the building go vertical in the very near future!
The aLoft Denver City Center will rise a total of six stories and provide Central Downtown with around 140 new hotel rooms. I am very excited that this corner is finally getting some much needed infill!
