At the site of the former Mail-Well Envelope factory immediately north of City of Cuernavaca Park in Downtown’s Prospect District is a new multi-family residential development: 3500 Rockmont. The project is being developed by Carmel Partners. Here’s a GoogleEarth aerial showing the site outlined in yellow (click to biggify):
The 3500 Rockmont project consists of 390 rental units distributed across 16 garden-style apartment buildings (three-story walk-ups) that matches the character of the nearby historic Platte Street. The project also features an approximate 10,000 square foot three-story clubhouse at the project’s entrance which will feature an outdoor deck with a pool, a spa, and an outdoor fireplace. Additional amenities at 3500 Rockmont will include a fitness center, clubroom, bike storage and repair room, a pet spa, and a roof deck with views of the Denver skyline. Here’s a site plan, courtesy of Carmel Partners:
The various buildings will be connected via landscaped walkways. Parking is provided through a combination of garages attached to the buildings, structured podium parking at the clubhouse building, and some surface lots.
Here’s a rendering of the pool area at the clubhouse building, which provides some sense of the scale and architecture of the overall development. The architect is KTGY Group.
After many months, environmental cleanup of the site was completed Spring 2013 and the industrial building on the property was demolished during the summer and fall. Construction began in September 2013 and the first residents should begin moving into 3500 Rockmont in September 2014.
