The Starwood hotel project proposed for 2525 16th Street between Central and Boulder streets in Lower Highland has been cancelled. The developer of that project, St. Charles Town Company, has sold the property to Mill Creek Residential, developer of the Modera line of apartment communities, as described in this recent BusinessDen article. Mill Creek currently has two Modera projects underway in the River North neighborhood. Here is the site outlined on a Google Earth aerial:

The new project at the site, Modera LoHi, will feature 129 homes in a five-story building. Parking for 138 vehicles will be provided in several levels of underground parking that will be accessed from 16th Street.

Thanks to Shears Adkins Rockmore, the project architect, here are two renderings of the proposed Modera LoHi. Please note: these renderings reflect a preliminary design and are subject to change.

The new development will also feature several resident amenities including a lounge, fitness center, an outdoor deck on the first floor, a pool deck on the second floor, and a rooftop deck with great views overlooking downtown Denver.

Three small buildings on the southern end of the site were recently razed but the 1970s-era office building (originally built as a sales center for mountain condos) remains. We’ll post our next update when the rest of the site is cleared and construction begins.
