While there may not be a lot of new projects being announced these days, we still have a number of infill projects that are under construction in the Downtown Denver area. Thanks again to Vicki for the photos, here’s a sampling of projects from the Uptown, Curtis Park-Five Points, City Park West, and Ballpark districts:
Urbans@Lawrence (26th and Lawrence):
Trellis (next door to the above Urbans project):
Traverse (25th and Champa):
2428 Champa (next door to Traverse):
Cornerstone Residences (Park Avenue and Curtis):
25th and Washington:
Chroma Townhomes (25th and Larimer):
Rocky Mountain Children’s Hospital (19th and High):
Uptown Apartments (19th and Clarkson):
Nice to see all that brick!
I know there are a few more infill projects under construction out there that I haven’t recently posted a photo of (or at all). If you’d like to contribute to DenverInfill, please email me your well-composed, higher-resolution photos or send me a link to where the photos reside on a photo-sharing account, and I’d be happy–and thankful–to post them. Please also include the project name/location too.
Thanks to Vicki H. who’s been sending me photos from the center city districts east of Downtown for a couple of years now, today we’ve got a bunch of infill construction updates!
First, the Park Avenue Apartments (formerly Uptown Apartments) project at 19th and Washington in the Uptown district (Project #20):
Also in Uptown, the big East Village redevelopment project has finally moved across to the southwest side of Park Avenue, with that project’s “Block 4″ now starting construction next to Benedict Fountain Park (Project #1):
Speaking of the East Village redevelopment project, on the other side of Park Avenue in the Curtis Park district, construction of “Block 3″ is nearing completion (Project #8):
I dig the architecture.
Also in Curtis Park are two new projects I don’t have on DenverInfill yet! First is a 6-unit townhome project at 22nd and Emerson:
and a condo/townhome project of some kind at 25th and Washington. This project is right up against The Point project and nicely completes the block. At the corner is a historic Denver Fire Department station:
In the Capitol Hill district, the new Argonaut Liquor (Project #10) opened two days ago at Colfax and Clarkson! Here’s the new building:
Finally, a new project not yet on the City Park West district page is the new Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children, located at the corner of 19th and High. Construction has recently begun:
Do you live or work near an infill project that I haven’t posted a photo of recently? If you’d like to be a contributor to DenverInfill, please send me an email (feedback “at” denverinfill “dot” com) with the photos or a link to where I can download them. Please just make sure they are higher-resolution, well-composed photos (no camera phones or shots taken through the car windshield, etc.) to maintain the high quality of this website. I will greatly appreciate it!
Today is Photo Update Day at DenverInfill.com! Thanks to Vicki, a DenverInfill regular, here are a bunch of photo updates of a number of projects from the east side of Downtown.

I can’t get around to take updated photos of all the Downtown projects as often as I’d like, so If you have a recent high-quality photo of a project tracked here on DenverInfill, send it on in and contribute to the cause!
Thanks to some sleuthing by a couple of DenverInfill regulars, the new infill project going in at the southwest corner of 17th and Franklin in the City Park West neighborhood has been identified as The Residences at Franklin Square. The boarded up commercial building right at the corner (see my blog of July 6) is now gone. The first phase of Franklin Square currently under construction immediately to the south consists of five 3-story townhomes, with five more planned for the corner site. The units are reported to be 1,900 – 2,900 SF in size. The project is being developed by Len Goldberg, owner of Place LLC, who’s also developing the Blueprint project at East Colfax and Madison. I haven’t found a rendering yet, but supposedly Franklin Square will be similar in appearance to the Washington Square project on the 1200 block of Washington Street (see Project # 7 on the Capitol Hill neighborhood page).
The Upper Larimer development at 34th and Larimer (see Project # 25 on the Curtis Park-Five Points neighborhood page) now has their website (www.upperlarimer.com) up and running. The website includes several new renderings of the project, as well as floorplans and pricing.
Also in the Curtis Park-Five Points neighborhood, Talus Development recently broke ground on their Urbans@Curtis and Urbans@Glenarm townhome projects. Talus is also wrapping up a major building renovation just down the street at Park Avenue and Champa. The building, formerly the Guadalajara Bus Station, is now known as the Sno White Lofts, and features five live-work units. For more information, go to their website at www.TalusBuild.com. It’s great to see Park Avenue’s transformation taking place through both new construction and building rehabilitations. Along with Century Real Estate’s Welton Place project at Park Avenue and Welton, the proposed Triton project, the East Village redevelopment, and many other completed or planned projects in the area, the Park Avenue corridor may some day soon live up to its name.
