Following our recent updates on Alexan Arapahoe Square and Radiant, today we take a look at yet another large residential project transforming the Arapahoe Square district from a parking lot wasteland into a dense urban neighborhood: Alexan 20th Street Station. Located a block from RTD’s 20th and Welton transit station, this 12-story building will add 354 new homes to the Downtown Denver market.
Since our last visit in February, the building has topped off and construction of the facade is in progress.
From California Street looking southwest toward 21st Street, we can see that the installation of the mostly-brick facade is well underway, with dark brown brick on the base and a lighter tan brick on the upper levels.
Here we have closeups of the brick facade and the corner at 20th and California where some ground-floor resident amenities will be located. The main pedestrian entry and leasing office will be on California at 21st Street, with sidewalk-level townhomes running the length of the building along California. In fact, all four floors of above-grade automobile parking will be wrapped and hidden from view (except the alley side) with residential units.
Finally, we have views of the project from near the historic Federal Building/US Custom House across the six-way intersection of California Street, 20th Street, and Broadway:
Alexan 20th Street Station is aiming for a January 2019 completion.
