Goodbye parking lot, hello SkyHouse!
Denver-based Palisade Partners is planning a new 26-unit townhome project at the corner of 24th and Washington in Denver’s historic Curtis Park-Five Points neighborhood. The site is outlined in yellow on this Google Earth aerial:
The development is being designed by Craine Archtecture. Here is a rendering of the project, courtesy of Craine:
For more information, please visit the project website: 2400Washington.com. The development is planned to be completed by late 2015.
A new 28-unit row home project is under development in the River North District near 34th and Larimer. Here’s a Google Earth aerial with the site outlined in yellow:
Larimer Row is already under construction and should be finished later in 2015. For more information, please visit the project website: larimerrow.com.
Let’s take a look at how things are coming along at 3500 Rockmont, a 16-building, 390-unit apartment complex under construction next to City of Cuernavaca Park on the old Mail-Well Envelope factory site in Downtown Denver’s Prospect district. Our only post on 3500 Rockmont was back in January 2014 when we announced the project. As you would expect, a lot of progress has been made on the development since then. Here are a few photos:
It’s sort of difficult to photograph this project given the amount of land that it covers and how little of it is accessible at the moment from Rockmont Drive. So let’s take a peek from above, thanks to this October 2014 Google Earth aerial:
Clearly, the buildings closer to the main entry (from where I took the photos above) are further along than those by the railroad tracks. It looks like 3500 Rockmont’s buildings will welcome their first residents in phases over the course of the next several months.
Here’s a brief update on the new residential project at 2460 Welton in the Five Points district, featuring a new rendering of the project, courtesy of Craine Architecture. Here’s the view along Welton:
Our last update on this development was in October when construction started.
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!
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.
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.
