The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless has started construction on an apartment project between 21st and 22nd on Stout Street, known as the Renaissance Stout Street Lofts. This project will provide 78 units targeted for a variety of incomes including affordable housing. Amenities include a computer room, courtyard, social service workers easily available, and underground parking.
Let’s take a look at a few renderings courtesy of The Colorado Coalition for the Homeless (click on the link for some groundbreaking photos as well). This is going to be a five-story structure taking up almost the entire length of the half block while being set back at the entrance. As seen in a lot of apartment designs lately, there will be a rounded facade on one corner.
Now for a look at the site. This is a very barren area of Arapahoe Square that has been riddled with parking lots for many years. Seeing another large lot disappear this close to central downtown is always exciting!
Groundbreaking was on January 30th and they are expected to open April of 2014. Empty lots are disappearing quickly in Arapahoe Square and we’ll be covering another one going away later in the week!
