Alexan LoHi Update #3

Let’s take a quick look at Alexan LoHi, one of four Alexan projects by Trammell Crow Residential under construction in the downtown Denver area. The other three are Alexan Arapahoe Square, Alexan 20th Street Station (both early in the construction process) and Alexan Uptown (just about complete). A fourth Alexan project, located at 18th and Market (Alexan LoDo?), is still in the planning stages.

When we last checked in on Alexan LoHi in September, excavation was still underway and the tower crane was being installed. Alexan LoHi will provide 106 new homes to the neighborhood in a five-story building with 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail at the corner. Here are a few photos from last weekend showing the concrete podium for the retail is up, with the wood-framed upper floors now starting to go vertical.

We’ll check back in a few months to see how the project is coming along. Alexan LoHi is expected to be complete in December 2017.

    I think I’ll always be sad that there was some cool commercial space that they tore down to build this. I wish they could have kept that, and built the apartments above them. I know it would have cost more, but it would have been worth it.

      Anybody know if the historical preservation society tried to prevent this?

    Anyone know why they didn’t go with the low-gauge steel framing like the Alexan Uptown?

    I predict that the retail in this building will be chains, no local businesses. That’s the way these big projects go.

    I too think it’s sad as well. I used to live 2 blocks from here in the early eighties and I loved the ‘affordable’ independent stores there that gave the neighborhood character and sense of place that was like a statement that ‘we are young urban’ and we uphold what went before us by being the new urban frontier when all new monies were focused on suburban expansion. There’s something to be said for older buildings especially when they can remind people of anything containing history. Those new real urban pioneers that scraped together personal savings to fortify the old are who attracted the later generations of inherited finance to build and not meaning to be too critical but a suburban style urban.

    No mention of Alexan West Highlands?
