The last of the parcels in the Denver Union Station redevelopment area on which an infill project has been proposed is now under construction.

Currently breaking ground is Ascent Union Station, a 14-story apartment building that will complete the development of the block that is home to the Elan Apartments/King Soopers grocery and provide an additional 142 homes for Denver residents in a walkable and transit-rich area. Greystar is the developer.

Yesterday morning, workers were busy moving materials onto the site and getting ready for excavation:

With construction of Ascent Union Station now underway, the only parcel in the Denver Union Station district that is undeveloped and without a proposed project is at the corner of 19th and Chestnut. That property, owned by Focus Property Group, will be targeted for development after Focus completes their Hilton Garden Inn project next door.

We have updated our DenverInfill Project Map to show Ascent Denver Union Station as “under construction”.
