Urbanists, and pedestrians, rejoice! The southeast side of Wewatta Street, between 17th and 18th, is now open. The latest milestone at The Coloradan, as construction is beginning to wrap up over the next few weeks, is the removal of the fences and barriers that have been along Wewatta for many months. With many new and unseen views of The Coloradan at the street-level, let’s take a little tour.
First, let’s check out the project from the commuter rail pedestrian bridge. The building hugs the bridge and gives pedestrians a splash of purple when walking up and along the bridge.
The plaza behind the commuter rail station has also been reopened with no fences in sight. Multiple awnings and storefronts line The Coloradan making this a very pedestrian friendly area.
Here are a few more pictures of the project from Wewatta Street. Just like the plaza, this is continues to be a pleasant pedestrian experience.
Wrapping up, here are two additional views of the project from a little further out.
The Coloradan is a clear indicator of how high the demand is for condos in the Downtown Denver area. With the building still under-construction, there are only 24-units left before the 334-unit building is sold out. Full completion for The Coloradan is expected in March with resident move-ins and retailers opening that month. We will swing by in the spring to take one last look at the project for our final update.
