The Delgany Apartments Update #8

Today we are going to stay in the Union Station neighborhood and take a look at The Delgany Apartments, now known as Verve. In our previous update, featured last August, the concrete structure was only up to four stories.

Five months makes a huge difference in the world of construction. The 10-story building has been topped out for a couple months and the facade is roughly halfway up the building. Even though Verve is tucked away from the Union Station redevelopment area, it still makes a huge impact around this intersection.

Here are a couple of pictures from the street level. Verve does not only contribute greatly to both Delgany and Wazee Street but also further completes the great street wall from Lower Downtown along 15th Street.

The renderings for this project were a little vague in terms of what materials were going to be used for the facade. Now, we have a very clear idea on what the facade is comprised of by what  is already complete. Verve will feature mostly blonde brick with floor-to-ceiling windows in various sections of the building.

It looks like there is still a lot of work to do but crews are working hard for a late spring completion. The 10-story building will add a total of 284 rental units to the Union Station neighborhood. Next up, we are going to take a break from Downtown Denver and head on over to the booming Cherry Creek neighborhood! Stay tuned!

    Great update Ryan. I like when you step back fro a building a bit so it can be seen in context. It’s nice to see this thing topped out. What an addition to this part of town!!

      Exactly. Awesome addition to the neighborhood. (Hopefully everybody happy with this one – hehe)

    This building is looking good…in fact, this may be Denver’s best urban block – plus the surrounding blocks have very little surface parking with none at the corners (where buildings should be).

    Nicely done OPUS.

    If the small, low-elevation building on the corner were to have a pleasant looking (green) roof, I bet it would really bebefit the view for the tenants of Verve. The owners could easily charge a bit more on the rent making it worth the effort.

      I’d actually suggest a rooftop cafe there, if the roof is solid enough for it…
