Lennar Multifamily Communities has submitted plans to the City of Denver for an 18-story, 329-unit apartment project on Welton Street between 21st and 22nd streets in a particularly parking lot-infested section of the Arapahoe Square district. Here’s the site outlined on a Google Earth aerial, followed by a Google Street View image:



The following rendering shows the Welton Street side of the building, with 22nd Street at left and 21st Street at right. All images presented below are from project documents submitted in January to the Denver Planning Board and are preliminary and conceptual in nature and are subject to further modification and refinement. RNL Design is the project architect.


Preliminary plans show the project stacking up as follows:

The ground floor includes leasing office, lobby, and building services near the 21st Street corner, a little over 4,000 square feet of leasable retail/restaurant space near the 22nd Street corner, and about 40 motor vehicle parking spaces in the center and rear. Levels 2, 3, and 4 would each contain 120 additional parking spaces, for a grand total of approximately 400 spaces for the storage of private automobiles. Over 30 motorcycle/scooter spaces would also be provided. The preliminary plans do not indicate how bicycle parking will be accommodated.

Level 5 contains over 3,000 square feet of indoor tenant amenity space and over 20,000 square feet of outdoor amenity space including a pool, lounge and landscaped areas, as well as about 20 residential units. Level 6 includes over 3,000 square feet for a fitness center and another 21 residential units, while Levels 7 through 18 provide the remaining 288 residential units. Level 17 also includes some indoor and outdoor tenant amenity space.

Here are all four corner perspectives:
