New Lower Highland Project: Tejon 35

Continuing on with the Lower Highland construction madness, there is a new apartment project going up on West 35th Avenue and Tejon Street. This project is actually almost complete and it’s not very often we, here at DenverInfill, let a project this size slip through the cracks. But, as the saying goes, better late than never! Here is a map of where the project is located with the site outlined. You might have noticed that this project is kitty corner from the new LoHi Place project we announced a few days ago. That’s a lot of activity around this one intersection!

Tejon 35 is going to be a 4-story apartment building supplying the Lower Highland neighborhood with 29 rental units. This building will also have ground floor retail with outdoor seating to help activate this stretch of Tejon Street. All upper third floor units will have 19 foot ceilings with a loft area along with large balconies if you are facing east towards Downtown Denver. A 2,400 square foot amenity deck will be included which will also look over Downtown Denver. The facade is going to be comprised of, what we’ve been seeing a lot of lately, brick. Here are some renderings courtesy of the architect’s website.

 

 

The building has topped out with one floor of concrete and three floors of timber. Scaffolding has been put up all around the building which means we should start to see the facade go up very soon!

 

Tejon 35 is expected to be complete by late summer and will offer a mix of studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom units.

    That’s funny… You sure miss a lot from my neighborhood. The mayor, 2 city councilman, and a slew if neighborhood people in five points took park in the Groundbreaking of a new project in Five Points. The first project as part of the Five Points redevelopment plan. I looked each day on here for more information. It never showed up. Since then tho a few from “LoHi”. I’m starting to think Five Points doesn’t matter to DenverInfill

    • Dan says:

      No offense Michael, but I’m not sure 5 single family homes (which are crazy overpriced by the way) being built in Five Points warrants a great deal of attention with all of the other larger scale development going on in and around downtown. That said, I live in Clayton and I’m very hopeful Five Points sees tons of redevelopment in the next few years, plenty of great opportunities.

      • Mike says:

        I agree Dan.. overpriced… but I hope we are both wrong and they are sold right away, and that the neighborhood continues to flourish.. Maybe it is just my block (I Doubt it) but I have some amazing neighbors who literally walk the neighborhood, picking up trash, planting gardens, giving historic bike tours. I have been following this site shortly after it’s inception when it was just Ken. I lived in Capital Hill at the time… Never thinking I would end up with my own home in five points years later… I read and post constantly.. I have seen a post on the United Way building and the better block five points project, but that is about it, when there are scores of projects that have gone unnoticed. This is not meant to be a criticism.. maybe I could have worded my message differently.. I THANK Ken, Ryan and ALL involved with this awesome site… but I am definitely not the only one that has noticed this area does not get as much coverage.. maybe that will change.. and I hope with all the upcoming projects it will.. again.. .Kudos to Denverinfill…

      I can’t speak for DenverInfill, but I don’t think they post anything unless there are renderings of it. There is stuff that I hear about on other blogs that doesn’t get reported here until later. Out of curiosity, I briefly looked for renderings on that project and couldn’t find anything.

    I had been under the impression that one was a condo project. Thanks for the clarification.

    • Greg says:

      There are also condos being built on the site directly south of the apartment building. You can kind of see the first floor framing for them in the last two photos.

  3. Django says:

    Infill did a big story on the groundbreaking of the new United Way headquarters not to long ago. Obviously not paying close attention.

    • Mike says:

      Indeed I saw that one Django.. that was the only one on five points in over a year… I am not trying to be a jerk. I myself, and many of my neighbors love this site. There is an extremely dedicated group of people who meet regularly and tirelessly to promote this gem of an area. Sadly it gets overlooked by this site.. that is all I am saying…. Maybe I should have phrased my initial response in a way more suitable to you. I applaud, Ken, Ryan and everyone else. And to Dan, (I agree, way overpriced, but they will be sold which is a testament to the neighborhood) 6 homes may not mean much to you… but if it brought the mayor, 2 councilmen, both neighborhood association, and scores of people out for the event. It is a big deal. Ill end it here… I really appreciate this site.. I appreciate my neighbors, the neighborhood associations, and the developers who take a chance on five points and Curtis Park. They are wonderful places to live and deserve more credit and coverage. Last year two houses across the street, both historic, sold within 3 days of each other, and one the day it when on the market, both well over 300K. There is a demand for this neighborhood…

  4. Bryan says:

    this project seems ripe for condo conversion when the market returns in that area….29 units (no inclusionary housing later)…very large rooftop patio (convert to pool later) and great location. smart developer!

    • Bryan says:

      oh, and i absolutely love the brickwork…kind of a play on dog-tooth style brick!

      • Freddie says:

        I love the brickwork too. Great looking building.

        I can’t believe how much is going on in Lower Highland right now. It’s hard to even keep track of it all. Crazy.

    • Jeff says:

      The condo market is extremely hot in Lohi and has been now for some time. There is demand but little supply.

      It must have something still to do with lending standards and risk.

    Mike and everyone else…. thanks for the comments!

    We certainly don’t intend to ignore any project anywhere in the greater Downtown area. If there is a project we haven’t covered, we’d love to do so. We need your help in identifying those projects, as we all have day jobs and this is just a hobby we do in our spare time.

    To be covered on DenverInfill, we do have some minimum project size requirements: 10 units. There are many <10 unit projects out there we haven’t covered simply because there are so many of them. That’s not to say these smaller projects are not important: they equally contribute to the restoration of the city’s urban fabric as the big projects. But we need to draw the line somewhere…

    If there is a project out there in the greater Downtown/Central Denver area over 10 units in size, please let us know about it. This goes for anyone. We absolutely need people’s help in gathering the information, and do a write-up even, and we’ll post it.

    To submit information about a project, just post a comment to any post with a quick note about it. All comments are moderated, so your comment will not be posted. Instead, we’ll respond to the email address you provided with your comment.

    Thanks everyone!

    Ken
