Today we are checking in on the progress of the Skyline View Apartments over on Zuni and 28th. This is a 105-unit apartment project that has started to go vertical breaking street level.
All three cores have topped out which gives you an overall sense of how tall the structure is going to be; which is 5-stories. The underground garage and first level have been poured with the 4-stories of timber starting to build.
The Skyline View Apartments are expected to be complete late 2013. Now that the foundation, garage and first level are up we should start to see this rise quickly.
It’s time to wrap up Line 28 over in the Lower Highland neighborhood as it is now complete and residents are beginning to move in. This is located at 16th and Boulder providing the Lower Highland neighborhood with 130 rental units. Not to mention, Line 28 is taking up what used to be a very ugly grass lot! So why is it called Line 28? Back in the Denver streetcar era, that was the streetcar line number that went right by the parcel this project is on. It’s always nice to see some history when naming these new developments!
As per my final update tradition, here are all the posts we have done on DenverInfill covering the project.

Now for some pictures of the completed building! Here we are looking at the project along 16th Street. It may look flat in the pictures, but there is a pretty steep grade along 16th Street between Boulder and Central.
And here we are looking at Line 28 from Boulder Street and from the lot directly behind it. Hopefully this lot will get filled in one day!
Overall, Line 28 has a very positive impact on this stretch of 16th Street and Boulder along with using some very tasteful materials. The only color that stands out are the random yellow stripes keeping the rest of the building very earth-toned. Line 28 was developed by Holland Partners Group who is also developing 1650 Wewatta. Let’s hope we can see more downtown development from them in the future!
The densification and revitalization of Denver’s Lower Highland district continues with LoHi Central, a 14-unit townhome project planned for 17th Street between Boulder and Erie Streets. Here’s the project location:
The project will be developed in two phases, with seven townhomes in Phase 1, scheduled to begin construction in late spring 2013, and seven more townhomes in Phase 2 following that. Here are two renderings: one of the 17th Street view, the other of the alley view:
The project architect is Kephart and the renderings were created by Visualize Graphics.

Continuing on our Lower Highland development tour, over at 2828 Zuni, construction of the Skyline View Apartments has commenced. As a refresher, this will be a 105-unit apartment building over a 129-space parking garage. Head on over here for a rendering and aerial view of the site.
For this update, I didn’t get up close and personal to the site, which at the moment is your typical construction pit. I took the pictures across the street to give you an idea of what influence this will have on this part of Zuni Street. The building will take up almost a whole half block which will add some much needed density to this part of the Lower Highlands.
The Skyline View Apartments, developed by Canwest LLC, are most likely to be completed by late 2013.
The Lower Highland neighborhood is sizzling with new development and today we are going over to 17th and Boulder to look at the 1736 Boulder Street project. To refresh your memory on exactly what is going there, head on over to the project announcement here.
A lot of the 5-story developments around downtown are being constructed with wood framing, but 1736 Boulder appears to be a steel/concrete build. This development will also be pursuing LEED-Silver certification, which is great for a 5-story residential building!
The 73-unit apartment building is expected to be complete by Summer 2013. There is a lot of development everywhere you turn in the Lower Highlands. Stay tuned for more updates!
Today we are heading over to the Lower Highlands to take a look at the Zuni Corners project. This is a 7-unit townhome project designed so each unit feels like a corner unit. For some additional renderings and details of Zuni Corners, head over to Ken’s post here.
This development looks almost complete and really gives this corner of Zuni a great feel. There are a lot of new developments that have rounded edges curving along the road. Seeing some right angled set backs is a nice change. The color scheme used is a lot bolder and not as brown as the rendering showed. In this case, these fit in a lot better how they are now.
Zuni Street has changed drastically over the past few years. There is a great mix of lower and higher density projects all along the corridor contributing to the Lower Highlands becoming a very tightly knit urban neighborhood.
