As new projects are starting along the Welton Corridor, in the Five Points-Curtis Park neighborhood, some are beginning to wrap. Today, we are going to visit the completed 2460 Welton project also known as The Wheatley at Five Points. We had pretty extensive coverage on this project, which was announced back in June 2014:
New Curtis Park-Five Points Project: 2460 Welton
Curtis Park-Five Points: 2460 Welton Update #1
Curtis Park-Five Points: 2460 Welton Update #2
Five Points-Curtis Park: 2460 Welton Update #3
Five Points-Curtis Park: 2460 Welton Update #4
The Wheatley features two types of residential units, 14 for-sale townhomes, and 84 rental apartments, and ground floor retail. Comparing to the rendering, the project came out almost exactly as expected. The dark paneling on top of the town homes is positive change, as it adds more contrast to the roof-line.
Here are two more photos of the completed project. Landscaping was just starting to go in when I took these pictures and should be nearly complete present day.
The Wheatley complements the neighborhood nicely from a scale and design standpoint. It also features for-sale and rentals in one project, which isn’t very common. Overall, this is a great piece of infill!
Staying in the Curtis Park-Five Points neighborhood, let’s head over to Park Avenue West and Welton Street to check in on the 2300 Welton project. As a refresher, this is a 223-unit apartment project contained in a four-story building.
Framing for the building is complete with the facade nearing completion. Here are two photos looking from both Park Avenue West and 24th Avenue along Welton Street.
2300 Welton features a neat entrance to the courtyard, which tunnels through part of the building. It’s pretty hard to spot until you are close to it.
The Park Avenue West side of the larger structure is nearly complete with landscaping and some minor facade work that still needs to be done.
The smaller building that sits across the alley, along Park Avenue West, is also part of the 2300 Welton project. It can be seen in this rendering.
2300 Welton started leasing this month and should be open by the Fall, which is when we will visit it for a final update.
Today we have a quick update on The Lydian, formally known as 2560 Welton project; an eight story mixed use building which will contain 129 apartment units, 15,000 square feet of office, and 10,000 square feet of retail. When we last visited this project in June, site preparations were underway.
Present day, excavation is nearly complete and a tower crane base sits on site! I’m sure we will see the red tower crane go up within the next couple of weeks.
This site was a surface parking lot for many years. We are glad to see it go! The Lydian should take around 12-16 months to complete.
Work has officially begun at 2560 Welton Street in the Curtis Park-Five Points neighborhood. This project will have a huge impact on the transit-connected Welton Corridor by adding 130 apartments, 15,300 square feet of office space, and 9,266 square feet of retail contained in a 8-story building. As a refresher, here two current renderings of 2560 Welton Street courtesy of Craine Architecture, the project’s architect.
The site has been cleared, heavy construction equipment has been moved onto the lot, and excavation has commenced.
This is very exciting news for the Welton Corridor as multiple projects are starting and wrapping up this year!
Back in June, we took an early look at 2560 Welton and provided some very preliminary renderings. As a refresher, this is quite a large project for the already booming Welton corridor; providing 130 apartment units, 15,388 square feet of office space, and 9,266 square foot of retail contained in a 8-story structure.
In this project update, we have some very refined and detailed renderings that give us a better insight to what 2560 Welton will look like. All of these renderings are courtesy of Craine Architecture. One great amenity, as you can see in the renderings below, is the light-rail stop right outside the front door providing residents easy access to Downtown Denver.
The base of the building will follow the neighborhood’s character, featuring a brick facade. Although the material is unknown, white paneling will be used on floors four through eight.
The construction time-frame for this 2560 Welton is still unknown but we will keep you in the loop as soon as we find out more information.
Let’s swing on over to the booming Five Points – Curtis Park neighborhood, where a lot of residential units are going up along the Welton Corridor. 2460 Welton Street is a mixed 14-unit townhome/84-unit apartment project that will be providing a total of 98 units to the neighborhood.
2460 Welton, designed by Craine Architecture, features a great curved corner treatment, mimicking buildings such as the historic Rossonian. This project is officially topped out at 5 stories and we should see the facade going up any time now.
The historic Welton Corridor is great for so many reasons. One of them is the incredibly easy light-rail access to get to Central Downtown making this a very well connected neighborhood!
Throughout the past few months, we have covered some large scale infill projects along the Welton Corridor: 2300 Welton, 2460 Welton, 2560 Welton, and The Rossonian. Today, we are announcing something a little different: a small, narrow infill project between 28th and 29th Street along Welton.
Located only a block away from the 27th and Welton light-rail station, here is an aerial with the project site outlined.
All of the information for this project is contained in this document from the Landmark Preservation Commission. This project will take up two parcels, 2810 and 2812 Welton Street. The existing structures on site (the white single family home) will be demolished to make way for 2810 Welton. Here is a Google Street View image of the site.
We have some very preliminary renderings of 2810 Welton Street which were approved by the Landmark Preservation Commission with conditions. This means the design and massing will be refined over time. Again, for full details of this project and approval conditions, head on over to the submittal documents.
2810 Welton Street will rise a total of five-stories, with the top two floors set back. The first and second floor of this building are intended for retail and business use with three floors of apartments on top. The square footage and unit count of this project is currently unknown.
2810 Welton is very preliminary as developers and financials still need to be lined up. However, finding these kinds of submittals show how strong the momentum is to develop the Welton Corridor.
Cranes are beginning to pop up all over Downtown Denver, in almost every neighborhood. Over in the Welton Corridor, a new crane has been erected as work continues on the 223-unit affordable apartment project. Here are some photos of the new crane from this past weekend.
As of today, there are two more cranes that recently went up, and two new crane bases that we have yet to cover. Can you guess where they are?
Staying in the Five Points – Curtis Park neighborhood, there is another project well underway along the Welton corridor; just across the street from the now under construction, 2300 Welton Street.
When we visited Five Points last weekend, we noticed that this project has officially broken street level. Here are some photos of the project site. As a refresher, 2460 Welton street is a 96-unit project featuring 14 townhomes and 82 apartment units.
That’s a wrap on our Welton Corridor update spree. There are a total of 319 units under construction along Welton Street with more residential, office, and hotel units on the way!
