New Project: Modera River North

Texas-based Mill Creek Residential, developers of The Casey and The Douglas, have begun construction on their next project in the Downtown Denver area: Modera River North.

Modera River North is located at 29th Street and Brighton Boulevard on a 2.9-acre parcel that is Block 4 of the Denargo Market Development Plan. Nearby to the southeast are two Denargo Market projects developed by Cypress Real Estate Advisors, The Yards at Denargo Market (now known as Marq at RiNo) and the under-construction The Crossing at Denargo Market. Here is a Google Earth aerial to get you oriented:


The Modera River North project will include 362 apartment units in a six-story building wrapped around a parking garage that contains (according to the development plan filed with the city) 436 vehicle parking spaces for 1.2 spaces/unit ratio.

Modera River North is aiming for a Fall 2017 completion.

    It’s hard to believe the transformation that this area of Brighton is going through. Within 10 years, there will be 10K people living between here and I-70. Adjacent to the light rail, planned upgrades to river accessibility, and easy access to the highway will make this an attractive area to developers for the future.

    Early projections for this specific area proposed a couple of high rise buildings, up to 25-30 stories. I wonder what happened to those?

      Those towers would likely have been condos. We don’t do condos in Colorado any more. Theyre so 1980s.

    Hmmm, where have I seen this before…? Answer, everywhere! This is the crap that sooo many people are tired of seeing go up. Not much we can do other than complain on Denver FUGLY.

    I’m all for density, but that building is ludicrously huge. The massive blocks and lack of mixed-use development seem to indicate that Brighton Blvd. isn’t going to be massively pedestrian-friendly, even after the improvements to the sidewalks and bike lanes. It would be nice to have some human-scale development in the area rather than yet another bland monstrosity.
