The Platform Update #6

The Platform at Union Station, the 21-story, 288-unit apartment tower being developed by Holland Partners next to the new commuter rail platforms at Denver Union Station, is climbing its way into the Denver skyline. A few weeks ago, Ryan gave us Update #5 on this exciting project.

To start your weekend off right, here’s some skyline eye candy for you (click for full size):


The red tower crane is The Platform’s. The black and white tower crane is new since last week. That’s for 1601 Wewatta going up across the street from The Platform.

    I was down there this morning, walking and bicycling around looking at everything, just blown away by some of the new views you get, seeing things popping up behind other things, etc. I was very pleased to see Ink! coffee going into the 17th Street side of Cadence. Coffee next to a multi-modal transportation hub–brilliant! Hope they don’t close the one at 16th & Little Raven.

      I was wondering the same thing, but the word is they are going to keep the Little Raven store open.

        On a side note, the Starbucks at 16th and Blake and at the REI store are the only two in the LoDo/CPV/Lower Highland area. This is kind of incredible considering how many there are from Larimer on into the Central Business District. I’m assuming there is no way this can hold forever, but I have no problem with local coffee chains establishing a foothold in the Union Station area before Starbucks can open a location.

          @Ted, from what I’ve heard from Starbucks employees at the 16th and Blake and 16th and Lawrence locations, Starbucks is going to be in the new union station underground apparently.. I’m sure Ink! will get plenty of business at their new location, but I’m not sure how well they’ll do having 2 locations within what, 2-3 blocks of each other?..

    Any news as to when a website would be up for looking at units? Does anyone have any information on market rent in the area and whether or not the Platform would offer affordable units?
