Along with Arapahoe Square and Union Station, Uptown is sizzling with development. Ascent Uptown is a new project at the intersection of 17th and Franklin. This will be a 3-story project with ground floor retail. If you are familiar with the area, this is going in the center of a neat retail and restaurant corridor which Ascent will contribute greatly to. This development will also add affordable apartments ranging from studios to one bedroom units.
I was able to get a rendering of this project courtesy of the Ascent Uptown website. Head on over there for floor plans and groundbreaking photos.
Fences have been put up around the site, some construction equipment has moved in, and some earth moving has begun.
Ascent Uptown is expected to be complete by October of this year. This may not be the largest infill project but it will have such a great impact along the 17th Avenue corridor.
