New Golden Triangle Project: Ten10 Brownstones

Downtown Denver’s Golden Triangle district is getting a new for-sale 17-unit project, Ten10 Brownstones, at the northeast corner of W. 10th Avenue and Bannock. Here’s a Google Earth aerial with the site outlined:

Currently on the site is a small commercial building and house. Here’s a photo Ryan took recently showing the project site:

 

The units will have an exterior of brick, sandstone, and glass. River Studio Architects did the design. Here are three renderings from the project website:

    Good looking project. Love those materials.

    Glad to see the building boom continuing with what appears to be a very visually appealing project. Of course it would be preferable to see this taking over an ugly old parking lot (of which there are at least tree within a one block radius), rather than loosing two perfectly good buildings.

    Okay, so a commercial space is lost and a house is torn down to construct this.

      I think the point is that this is not infill but rather replacement of perfectly good building stock. In time these may get replaced, but we all want to see the parking lots go before any of the built environment is destroyed.

      But, this does look like a really nice project. The architect did an excellent job.

      • Jeffrey says:

        I agree, my point was not made clearly. I am just noting, sadly, that commercial space is being lost and a home will be torn down. Not infill, I agree, and too bad, because we need small commercial space and we want to get rid of parking lots.

    I like the design and the materials of this project. I just wish this was actual infill. The ordinal structures at this site provided affordable real estate for business, and there are plenty of parking lots in this area to infill. Oh well, it is still a nice project.

    I concur with this not being built on a parking lot seems strange to say the least. I would think that it would be significantly cheaper to build in place of a parking lot than tearing down two buildings.

    I do hope they are able to keep those trees though, mature trees are so much better…speaking of which, I asked an apartment building near me to consider planting trees between the street and sidewalk. Their response was that the tree roots mess up the sidewalk, which can be true, anyone have any suggestions for a counter argument to that?

    • Corey says:

      There are many kinds of common street trees with roots that do not cause damage the sidewalk. Alot of trees will grow fine in small holes in pavement, like the honey locusts on the 16th Street Mall and the trees planted in front of Union Station

    I too really wished this knocked out a parking lot instead, but I think I understand the economics behind why this spot was developed. This just wasn’t a very attractive piece of commercial property (imo). It didn’t look like the units were fully rented out, and I doubt they fetched all that much rent. Given how the property is taxed based on the improvements, you could very well have had a much more motivated seller than with one of the unimproved parking lots.

    Wish the tax structure could somehow be changed to discourage these land squatting parking lot owners without it being completely unfair… Some sort of “potential usage” tax would get very very muddy.

    I think the criticism of this project is unfounded.

    If you’ve spent any time in that area (I visit Bannock Street Garage on occasion), you know that this isn’t exactly a bustling commercial area. Yes, there are some cool shops/restaurants/bars in the area, but not what you call a lively environment.

    I think this development is a pretty good looking project that will continue to add life to the Golden Triangle.

    It looks like the majority of demolition has taken place on this site.

    It definitely looks different on that corner already.
