This is our final roundup post for the River North district for the summer of 2020. There are so many infill development projects in RiNo, that we had to break the neighborhood up into four quadrants, using the railroad tracks and 33rd Streets as the quadrant boundaries. At the end of May, we started with the West quadrant, and so far in June we’ve tackled the North and East quadrants. With this post we wrap things up with the South quadrant. In these four roundup posts we’ve covered 30 projects that are in some state of development in River North.
Of those 30 projects, 24 are in the North and East quadrants above 33rd Street near the 38th and Blake transit station. Not only does this demonstrate the appeal of being close to transit, but there are also larger sites in the upper half of River North where underutilized, vacant, or obsolete industrial properties are more common.
Our South quadrant updates include one project just completed, one under construction, and one ready for construction to begin.
Camden RiNo. This development has wrapped up construction and leasing is underway. Camden RiNo is a residential community with 233 homes in a five-story building with over 3,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space overlooking a courtyard along Larimer. These photos are a couple of weeks old so the landscaping should be finished by now.
And a final look at Camden RiNo from above:
AVA RiNo. The AVA RiNo project is a 246-home development by Avalon Bay Communities that broke ground early in 2020 and is making good progress. The three-story project covers the block bounded by 26th, Lawrence, 27th, and Arapahoe streets. Currently, AVA RiNo is working on its underground parking level. Below is a number of construction photos from a few weeks ago, along with a rendering, courtesy of Studio PBA.
2750 Blake. We first reported on the proposed condominium development at 2750 Blake in our Proposed Residential Roundup at the end of 2019. At that time, the building permit review process had just started. We can now report that, according to city records, the project’s Building Plans were officially approved by the city on June 24, 2020. Currently, there is no construction activity at the site.
That’s it for the South quadrant of RiNo. We will do another set of roundup posts for River North near the end of the year.
