Over the next few days we are going to take a break from all the great Downtown Denver development and take a look at some significant mixed-use and residential developments proposed in Cherry Creek. Today, we are going to start out by taking a look at a new apartment project proposed on the southeast corner of East First Avenue and Steele Street: Steele Creek Apartments. Here is a map with the site outlined in yellow.

BMC Investments purchased the site last year and plans to build a 12-story, 250-unit apartment building with 16,000 square feet of retail. Half of the units will be one bedroom and the other half will be split between studio and two-bedroom units. Amenities will include a rooftop deck, landscaped courtyards and a fitness center. Here is a rendering of Steele Creek:

Currently, there is a construction fence around the site which contains two 2-story buildings and a 4-story building. These buildings will be demolished to make way for the 12-story apartment building.

BMC Investments plans to break ground on Steele Creek within the next couple months.This project is a great start to adding density to an already moderately dense neighborhood. Stay tuned for some more new project announcements in Cherry Creek!
