Cherry Creek: 250 Columbine Update #4

250 Columbine is the only project under construction in Central Denver that features high-density condos. Given the current demand for condos and for-sale housing in general, 250 Columbine already has 80% of the 80 units under contract.

Another component of 250 Columbine is an 8-story, 70,000 square foot office building. The glass and stone facade is almost complete on the office portion, with work still underway on the residential side. From both a distance and up close, this project makes a significant impact in Cherry Creek North.

Because of the zoning in Cherry Creek, 250 Columbine steps down to three-stories along Third Avenue. Here is a picture of the project at Third Avenue and Columbine Street.

Seeing a condo project in the works is always exciting. Now, we only need about 100 more of these to keep the housing shortage at bay here in Denver! Cherry Creek week keeps trekking on. Stay tuned for an exciting announcement tomorrow!

 


Cherry Creek: 100 Saint Paul Update #4

It’s been a few months since we’ve had ‘Cherry Creek week’ here on DenverInfill. As you may know, Cherry Creek is going through a significant boom bringing in over 250,000 square feet of office space, 80 condo units, over 500 apartment units, and 150 hotel rooms. To kick off an infillicous week, let’s start off with 100 Saint Paul, an 8-story, 149,000 square foot office building.

Since we last visited this project, it was a steel shell in the making. Now, the glass and stone facade is nearing completion with the building coming together very nicely. Along Saint Paul Street, 100 Saint Paul offers 14,000 square feet of ground floor retail with a terrace for tenants on top.

Here is a view of the project from 1st Avenue looking east. Talk about a huge impact! If you don’t remember what this site looked like before, head on over to our announcement post.

100 Saint Paul is a significant project for Cherry Creek. Not only does it bring more office tenants to the neighborhood, it also has a remarkable impact along First Avenue, which is densifying quickly. We should see this project wrap up within the next couple of months.


Union Station: 1601 Wewatta Update #7 (Inside the Infill Edition)

Last week, DenverInfill had the privilege of touring 1601 Wewatta; a 10-story, 280,000 square foot office building going up in the Union Station neighborhood. The series of updates for 1601 Wewatta is quite unique. In our last ‘Inside the Infill’ update, DenverInfill toured the project when it was bottomed out; a huge hole in the ground. In this update, we visited the project when it is topped out and nearing completion. A big thanks to Dave Klebba of Hines for giving us a great and thorough tour.

First, we will start out with the ground level. Work has started on the plaza along with the stone and glass facade steadily going up.

For a refresher, here are updated renderings of both the plaza and finished building.

The lobby of 1601 Wewatta is very tall and open. There will be two elevator banks serving both the parking garage and the main 10-story office portion.

Here is a rendering of what the lobby is expected to look like when complete.

Like any office project under-construction, there isn’t much to see on the upper floors. However, there is one thing that sets 1601 Wewatta apart from the rest.

2015-03-14_1601Wewatta-04 2015-03-14_1601Wewatta-05

Terraces. On floors three, four and seven, there is outdoor space offering fresh air and views of the surrounding area. Here are some shots off of the third floor terrace.

The seventh floor terrace offers a great view of the Millennium Bridge.

No tour is complete without venturing to the top floor. Here are some views we were lucky enough to get on a clear day!

1601 Wewatta is making great progress and greatly contributes to the new urban fabric of the Union Station neighborhood. In the summer we will swing by and take a look at the completed project!


Central Downtown: 1401 Lawrence Update #6

It’s Tower Crane Tuesday at DenverInfill!

2015-02-03_1401-lawrence-crane

If you like watching a tower crane be assembled, I suggest you head down to the 1401 Lawrence site as soon as possible.

Like its tower crane, 1401 Lawrence is going vertical!

Union Station: 1601 Wewatta Update #6

Between the time we did our last update on 1601 Wewatta and just this last weekend, a significant element has been added to the 10-story building.

New glass is starting to rise and from the looks of it, the glass is going to be clear. This will be a great contrast to its neighbors, 1900 16th Street and the DaVita World Headquarters, which have light and dark blue glass facades.

If you need a refresher on what the 1601 Wewatta will look like, head on over to our announcement post where we have multiple renderings.


Golden Triangle: Museum Center + The Art Hotel Update #5

Let’s visit the Golden Triangle neighborhood and check in at the Museum Center + Art Hotel project. Just like the Hyatt Place / Hyatt House, we can now see some of the facade elements on the building.

This project has been topped out for a while now, at 9 stories, and the tower crane has since been taken down. A lot is going on with the facade with a mix of stone, glass and paneling, but given all of the different architecture styles on this stretch of Broadway, this building fits right in.

Here is an above view of the project. There are still fences at the street level however, from this angle, you can tell that the pedestrian interaction with this building is going to be excellent!

2015-01-19_ArtHotel-02

The Museum Center + Art Hotel is expected to open sometime in March. Stay tuned for a final update!


Union Station: 1601 Wewatta Update #5

While I was up in the air taking pictures of the Triangle Building, I turned around to get a great photo of 1601 Wewatta. The building has one more floor to go before it is topped out; reaching an equivalent height of its neighbor, Cadence.

Here is a bonus shot looking down the 16th Street Mall. It’s worth nothing that the street wall on the South side is now complete from Chestnut Street all the way to Broadway!

The Union Station neighborhood is quickly becoming very dense, giving it a very urban feel. It’s exciting to see all the progress!


Union Station: The Triangle Building Update #7

I was out and about on this chilly Sunday morning taking some aerial photos around downtown and figured it’s been a while since I’ve stopped by in the Union Station neighborhood.

As we saw in our last update, the Triangle Building looks pretty sharp from the ground level. Today, I some unique perspectives of the building from around seven and ten stories up.

Here is one more perspective, just higher than the roof. Here you can clearly see the triangular shape of the building.

The glass facade is climbing quickly on the Triangle Building. I’m sure we will see a complete exterior within the next few weeks!
