Some infill projects are bigger than others, but even the smaller projects help fill in missing bits of the urban fabric and energize their surroundings. In the case of The Boathouse, a new 10,400 square foot office project in Lower Highland at 1850 Platte Street, that means putting a cool new micro-building on a vacant sliver of land. Nautical-themed projects are rare in arid, landlocked Denver, but this one is kind of appropriate given its location on Platte along the Platte. Here’s the site outlined on a Google Earth aerial.
The Boathouse, developed by Grand American, Inc., features four floors total—parking and lobby space on the ground floor and three levels of offices above—in a building that offers nice views of Commons Park and the Downtown Denver skyline. Here are two renderings, courtesy of the project architect, Shears Adkins Rockmore; the first image shows the view from the Platte River side, the second image shows the view from the Platte Street side.
Construction on the project is already underway and I bet our project-updating-expert Ryan Dravitz will have some pics to share with you before too long.
