The red crane has been taken down quite some time ago on 2020 Lawrence but the development itself is starting to really take form. As it is still a labyrinth of scaffolding, some elements are beginning to show.
I always forget how large this project is. A city block long, 10-story apartment building makes quite the presence and I’m sure once all the scaffolding is down it will be quite impressive. You can see some of the masonry work on the lower floors. Looks very similar to the bricks used in 2020 Lawrence’s neighbor, Solera.
And now to the back side of the development. You can see that a lot of the bricks are set in the back as well as some balconies starting to take form. As the back may not be as interesting as the front, we can only hope there will be another development taking up the lot behind 2020 Lawrence.
As a little bonus, one thing that goes slightly unnoticed; building logos. Last year I did a post over at DenverUrbanism about the new CenturyLink signs. I caught another new logo on 1125 17th Street while taking pictures of 2020 Lawrence. Here is an element that contributes to a more subtle change on our skyline.
2020 Lawrence is a great anchor development for the Arapahoe Square district. We can only hope this is the first of many like it that will shape and change this neighborhood.
