Radiant, formally known as the 21st and Welton Apartments, has made a lot of progress since our last visit back in February. The project has topped out and, in addition to the brick facade on the base, the glass curtain wall on the south side of the building is nearly complete.
Here are four images of Radiant looking north. The glass facade adds a modern touch, and nicely contrasts with the brick pattern along the podium, center, and north end of the building.
As with any urban project, the ground floor is the most important element, especially to the pedestrian. Radiant will feature 4,000 square feet of ground floor retail near the 22nd and Welton Street corner with the rest of the ground floor, towards 21st Street, purposed for the leasing office, lobby, and general building services. With setback entrances on both sides, and glass windows along the middle of the block, this project is a win at the street level.
With Radiant standing as the tallest building in Arapahoe Square at the moment, it makes for an interesting backdrop.
Last but not least, here is a straight on view of Radiant where you can see the facade from the ground floor to the roof.
This project still has a while to go as completion is anticipated for June 2019.
