A significant project has been proposed in Downtown Denver that will add a good amount of height and density. The X Company, a new apartment brand to Denver, has proposed their third project: X Denver 3. Work has been underway on the first X Denver in Union Station North for some time now. A second X Denver has been proposed right next door to the first X Denver, more on that later, with the third X Denver proposed over in Arapahoe Square.
Before we get into more details, let’s take a look at where X Denver 3 will be located. Below is a map with the project site outlined at 2100 Arapahoe Street.
As X Denver 3 is making its way through the Downtown Design Advisory Board, it appears that site preparations are already underway. This includes demolishing two buildings that resided on the site. Below are current photos of the project site showing that the buildings have been cleared. To see what was on this block before, a quick Google Street View search will suffice.
So, what is going up at 2100 Arapahoe Street? According to the plans filed with the city, a 22-story tower with 410 apartment homes will be constructed that includes 6,100 square feet of ground floor retail and 20,000 square feet of co-working space. These “X social communities” also include a large amount of amenity space for their residents as we’ve seen with X Denver. This new project follows suit with close to 20,000 square feet of resident amenity space.
X Denver 3 is currently going through design review and will adhere to the Design Standards and Guidelines for Arapahoe Square. Currently, there is only a preliminary rendering showing the massing however, more detailed renderings will be available as it goes through design review. The rendering below is courtesy of BusinessDen. The architect on record is Studio PBA.
Update – 11/20/2019 – Thanks to Studio PBA, we have a fresh and much more refined rendering of this project. The image below has been replaced with the new rendering.
With a fence up around the project site and site prep underway, we can only hope that vertical construction will start soon. As we recieve more details, and more refined renderings, we will post another update.
