This year has been a very busy one for your DenverInfill bloggers with work and travel and other distractions; so busy in fact, that we were unable to keep up with many of the dozens of infill projects in and around Downtown Denver that are in various stages of development. As the end of 2019—and the decade—nears, we are going to catch up by covering a bunch of projects together in one post instead of one project per post like we normally do.
We start today with Part 1 of our roundup of residential projects located on the eastern side of the downtown area that have been completed in the past few months. Part 2 will cover recently completed residential projects on downtown’s western side, and that will be followed by recently completed non-residential developments in the downtown area. Then we will tackle the long list of proposed projects throughout the urban core that we haven’t covered yet. So get ready for a big finish to the year (and decade) here at DenverInfill!
Today we’re also breaking in our “image carousel” widget, so use the navigation arrows to scroll through the images per project or click on any image to enter lightbox mode to see the photos in full-screen view.
OK, let’s get started with the “Final Updates” for six multifamily residential projects that wrapped up construction recently in the Arapahoe Square, Uptown, Capitol Hill, and Ballpark/RiNo districts on downtown’s east side!
Alexan Arapahoe Square
The 13-story Alexan Arapahoe Square development adds 355 new homes to Welton Street between 22nd Street and Park Avenue. Developed by Trammell Crow Residential and designed by Kephart, this project replaced a dilapidated warehouse and two ugly surface parking lots. View all Alexan Arapahoe Square posts.
Located next to Alexan Arapahoe Square on Welton between 21st and 22nd streets, Radiant is an 18-story residential tower featuring 329 homes. The project was designed by RNL Design (now Stantec) and was developed by Lennar Multifamily Communities. Previously, the entire site was surface parking. View all Radiant posts.
Alexan 20th Street Station
Situated at 20th and California, the 12-story Alexan 20th Street Station puts 354 new homes one block away from RTD’s 20th & Welton Station on the L line. Like its sibling two blocks away, Alexan 20th Street Station was developed by Trammell Crow Residential and designed by Kephart. This project eradicated a surface parking lot.

Located just a couple of blocks south of the previous three projects, SOVA Apartments is a new 12-story building at the corner of 19th and Grant that brings 211 homes to the walkable Uptown district. The SOVA Apartments were developed by McWhinney and designed by Craine Architecture. Previously, the site was occupied by a gravel lot and surface parking. View all SOVA posts.
Modera Capitol Hill
Moving south from Uptown into Capitol Hill, next up is Modera Capitol Hill, which was developed by Mill Creek Residential and designed by Davis Partnership. Modera Capitol Hill sits at the corner of 12th and Grant and provides 197 new homes in one of Denver’s most popular neighborhoods. Previously, the site was home to a small office building and a large parking lot. View all Modera Capitol Hill posts.
Let’s head up to the Ballpark/RiNo area where, at 24th and Blake, the new Canvas apartments are located. Developed by Lennar Multifamily Communities and designed by Kephart, Canvas adds 241 new homes in a seven-story building two blocks from Coors Field. Before Canvas, the property contained several one-story buildings that housed mostly storage facilities but also included the River North Brewery, which moved 10 blocks up to 34th and Blake.

That’s it for Part 1 of our roundup of recently completed multifamily housing developments on the east side of the Downtown Denver area. Stay tuned for six more “Final Updates” in Part 2!
