Today we are heading over to the Capitol Hill neighborhood to check in on the 8th and Emerson apartments. This may not be particularly large infill like we’ve been seeing but, it’s still filling a gap in an already built-out part of Capitol Hill.
Wood framing has been climbing up and is currently up to the second floor out of a total of three. There is a mix of infill on 8th Avenue ranging from towers to 2-story town-homes making this project a great in between filler building.
The 8th and Emerson apartments are going to provide 42-units with underground parking (one space per unit). Construction should be complete by summer.
Over in the Capitol Hill neighborhood, 6th Avenue and Logan Street to be exact, The Logan, a 51-unit apartment project, is now open and already has residents living in it. As per tradition with final updates, here are all the previous updates so you can follow the project from announcement to completion.
The Logan Update #1
The Logan Update #2
The Logan Update #3
The Logan finally broke the near two decade development dry spell in Capitol Hill, taking up a grassy lot that was a huge eyesore along Logan Street. Let’s take a look at the completed project!
The design, being a typical 5-story apartment development, exceeded my expectations between the jagged facade, front artwork, brick, and vibrant color schemes. The Logan gives a great modern face while fitting perfectly in the area. Capitol Hill already has a great tight knit urban edge feel to it but, there are still a few lots leaving huge holes. This is an example of a great step forward and I hope to see more of these crucial lots filled in the future. Welcome to Capitol Hill, The Logan!
Just down the road from the 8th & Emerson Apartments, The Logan (Located on 6th Avenue and Logan St) is really beginning to take shape. It’s great to see developments in Capitol Hill after decades have passed.
This development is topped out along with the wood framing nearly complete; so this gives you a good idea on scale. Underneath it all, The Logan houses 51 underground parking spaces.
As a refresher, The Logan is a 57 unit apartment building anticipating completion this fall. For floor-plans, leasing information and additional details check out their website.
Over in the Capitol Hill neighborhood the 8th & Emerson Apartments are underway. For a rendering and details, head on over to Ken’s post.
Just like many of the new developments around Downtown Denver, excavation has commenced. This is always one of the most exciting parts of any development because there is visible progress being made.
The 8th & Emerson Apartments should be completed by late spring / early summer of next year.
I do not have much information on this project nor is it easy to find but there is a little rental project going up in Capitol Hill between 10th and 11th Avenue on Ogden Street.
From what I know, there was a house on site that was demolished to make way for this building. It appears to be three stories and almost complete. Contractors were also working on the house next door. Little projects like this are also exciting especially in the heart of Capitol Hill.
With ‘The Logan‘ also under construction we can only hope there will be more projects coming up to fill some empty gaps in this neighborhood.
The vacant lot at the southwest corner of Emerson Street and East 8th Avenue in Capitol Hill has long been considered a prime site for multi-family residential development. Over the years, several developers have proposed a project for the property, but none have gotten out of the ground. As an interim use, the parcel has served the neighborhood well as a community garden. Now, a new residential project is finally moving forward. Here’s a GoogleEarth aerial where I’ve noted the site:
Architect and developer Chris Fulenwider recently started construction on the project, a 42-unit apartment building. Rental rates will range from $900 to $1,900/month, with unit sizes ranging from 500 – 800 square feet. The three-story building will feature a below-grade parking deck with one space per unit, accessed from the alley. Here’s the project rendering, courtesy of Mark Throckmorton from Fulenwider. Also, my thanks to Doug Poppe for additional information on the development.
Excavation is currently underway and the project should be complete by next spring/summer.
