Our last update on this development was in October when construction started.


Speer: Speer Boulevard Apartments Update #2

After over a year of uncertainty, we here at DenverInfill have finally come across renderings of the Speer Boulevard Apartments going up at the 6th Avenue / Grant Street / Speer Boulevard intersection.

The Speer Boulevard Apartments will provide the Speer neighborhood, just south of Capitol Hill, with 211 apartment units in a six-story building with the ground floor dedicated to retail. Here are two renderings of the building, courtesy of Gables Residential.

I think we can all agree this is much better use of land than what was there before, a gas station!


Central Platte Valley: The Confluence Update #5

It was only three weeks ago when we reported that the old industrial building at the corner of 15th and Little Raven had been demolished to make way for The Confluence, a proposed 34-story apartment tower in Downtown Denver’s Central Platte Valley district.

Clearing a property of an existing building or other site improvements is not the same thing as a new project being under construction, at least not by DenverInfill standards. There are several examples of sites that were cleared in the pre-recession era whose projects never made it out of the ground.

That won’t be the case for The Confluence, however, as excavation for the tower’s foundation appears to have begun:

It will be fun to watch this tower climb and take its place in the downtown skyline, but some patience will be required before that happens: work putting in the tower’s three levels of underground parking will probably take a good part of 2015. The project is slated to open in early 2017.


Union Station: 17W Update #2

Two weeks ago in our Update #1 on Holland Partner Group‘s 17W development, we shared with you a new rendering of the project.

Not only are we happy to report that the project’s sleek updated design is the work of Denver-based Davis Partnership, but the good folks at Davis have also provided us with two additional renderings to enjoy.

Here is a view of the project from the corner of 17th and Wewatta, next to RTD’s Wewatta Pavilion:

The development features three 10-story towers rising above a 3-level base. As shown in the image above, two of the towers are parallel to Chestnut and Wewatta, with the third tower spanning the width of the block facing 18th Street. Here is the view from the corner of 18th and Wewatta, with 18th on the right and Wewatta on the left:

Whole Foods is planning a 56,000 square foot flagship store on the ground level facing the 17th Street Promenade. 17W is expected to break ground Spring 2015.


Central Platte Valley: The Confluence Update #4

The old warehouse at the corner of 15th and Little Raven was demolished this morning:

This clears the site for the construction of the 34-story Confluence tower to begin. Our last update (#3) on the project was just a few weeks ago. Here are two updated renderings of the proposed tower via the project architect (Gromatzky Dupree & Associates) website:

We’ll post our next update when full excavation for the tower’s three levels of underground parking is underway.


Uptown: Alexan Uptown Update #1

Back in March, we announced a new project bringing 372-units to the Uptown neighborhood. As of October 31st, a fence has been put up around the parking lot and workers have started to rip up the asphalt.

As I was shooting some snowy aerial video footage at Benedict Fountain Park today, I stumbled across a frame that perfectly highlights the project site. You can clearly see how large of an impact this project is going to have in the neighborhood as it’s taking up the entire half block. The project site is the leftmost parking lot in the photo.

Being kitty corner to One City Block, this part of Uptown is turning into a great, tight-knit urban community!


Union Station: 17W Update #1

Yesterday, we announced that a flagship Whole Foods was coming to Union Station on the ground floor of 17W, a new development by Holland Partner Group. To continue on the good news trend, we have an updated rendering of 17W, courtesy of Inside Real Estate News.

The design of 17W is now sleek and glassy! We, here at DenverInfill, are very excited for this project to break ground!


Flagship Whole Foods Coming to Union Station

Good news for the Denver Union Station neighborhood! According to the Denver Business Journal, Whole Foods will be opening a new 56,000 square foot flagship store at 17th and Wewatta Street. So how is this infill news? If you remember back in June, we announced a new project, 17W, that had an unknown grocery anchor tenant on the ground floor. With the announcement of Whole Foods, this project is coming closer to reality.

As a refresher, here are some preliminary renderings of the project from our announcement post. Developed by Holland Partners, 17W will provide Union Station with 640 apartment units contained in three 13-story buildings which will rise over a retail and parking podium.

According to the article, the Whole Foods is expected to open sometime in 2017 which means we should hopefully see a groundbreaking within the next few months.
