Balfour at Riverfront Park Update #3

Let’s head over to Downtown Denver’s Central Platte Valley district and check in on the Balfour at Riverfront Park project. When we last covered this project in October, the west side of the project was built up to three stories and the east side was a hole in the ground.

The west side of the project has since topped out at five stories. Here is a view of it from Commons Park.


Going in for a closer look, it appears Balfour at Riverfront Park will feature both rectangular and arched floor-to-ceiling windows as well as a rooftop patio looking over Commons Park. The passage through the building for Bassett Circle has now been fully built with three stories of apartments above.


Back to my favorite spot to follow this project: The east side of the development is now up to two stories with one more floor to go. I bumped up the resolution of this image so you can see more detail on the project site from above! Make sure you click to enlarge!

The Balfour at Riverfront Park is shaping up nicely and should be done by this summer. We will visit this project again for its final update when it is complete!

    I’m glad the Moffat RR station was saved and incorporated into the Balfour.

    Great update Ryan, but when you said, “click to enlarge” I think you meant “click to embiggen.” It’s a perfectly cromulent word.

      Hahah… I never get tired of that.

    I would love a tour around the Union Station area to look at all of the developments. I know that you all ran them during the summer. When do you plan on starting them up again? If not until the summer, is it possible to arrange something sooner. Thanks

      Hi Nathan. Yes, I’m planning on doing a few tours before the project opens in May. The first one will be in March. Stay tuned for a blog on that within the next week or two…

    Will denverinfill be covering Amtrak’s return to Union Station which is scheduled for tomorrow, February 28? I’d love to see photos of how they’re working around the ongoing construction to make that happen.
