A new 12-story residential building has been announced for Denver’s Uptown district. Proposed by NAVA Real Estate Development, the project will be located at 575 East 20th Avenue overlooking Benedict Fountain Park to the west. Here’s an aerial image with the site outlined, along with a rendering provided by the developer, courtesy of project architect Davis Partnership:

575 East 20th Avenue will feature 249 for-sale condominium units, with a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom floor plans.

NAVA purchased the property recently from the Denver Housing Authority, which once had plans to develop it as part of its Park Avenue redevelopment plan. Instead, DHA decided to sell the 1.06-acre site to the private sector, with the property temporarily converted into a green space until development could occur. Here are two views of the site from the sidewalk level, courtesy of Google street view:

There are a few more renderings of this project on the NAVA website, although they may not necessarily be as current as the one provided above. The project will seek WELL Building Certification.

If all goes as planned, condominium units will be available for purchase in the Spring of 2020.

It’s great seeing condominium projects finally starting to be proposed for Denver’s urban core after the long drought caused by the construction defects issue! We look forward to tracking this project as it moves towards construction.
