Today we are heading over to the La Alma / Lincoln Park neighborhood to check in on the South Lincoln Redevelopment. Back in May of 2011, the Denver Housing Authority gained funding for this redevelopment project and since then, there hasn’t been a break in construction.
First stop on our South Lincoln Redevelopment tour, I am going to give you a quick refresher on the completed 1099 Osage project; an 8-story senior housing building. I highlighted it on our handy map so you can get a feel for its location in entire redevelopment.
Back in 2011 and 2012, I did a bunch of updates on just 1099 Osage. Since then, multiple phases have kicked off hence why I am now covering this redevelopment as a whole. Here is a current picture of 1099 Osage. If you want a more in depth look at the building, it can be found here.
Next, we will be looking at Phase II which includes the 81-unit ‘Mariposa Apartments’ (highlighted on our map).
Wood framing is nearly complete on these buildings and installation of the glass has begun. These two buildings alone are a drastic improvement over the existing structures on site. We’ll check back in a couple months to see what the facade is going to be comprised of.
Last but not least, construction for Phase III has commenced and staging for Phase IV has begun.
As you can see, the elevator core with a little bit of wood framing is all the progress seen so far with this phase. Still, this is a great sign of progress!
The South Lincoln redevelopment is a huge and very exciting project for the La Alma / Lincoln Park neighborhood. I was very surprised when I saw how much was actually under construction. I also had the opportunity to talk to a couple insiders. It looks like the redevelopment going to keep trekking forward through all six phases!
