One of the most exciting projects in the Union Station redevelopment field has started to go vertical! The structure of Elan at Union Station, formally known as 20th and Chestnut, has broken the street level and looks like it is going to be taller than we anticipated.

What do I mean by “taller than we anticipated”? The ground floor of Elan at Union Station is going to house Downtown Denver’s first full service grocery store, and instead of the standard floor-to-ceiling height used in apartments, approximately 10 feet, the ground floor will have a floor-to-ceiling height of 28 feet. Because of that, the building will have the presence of a 7-story building while still only rising five stories. Here are some pictures of the project site.



Construction keeps moving forward in the Union Station neighborhood! I’m sure many residents around this area are looking forward to this project’s completion.
