Alexan LoHi Update #4

Let’s check in on the Alexan LoHi project at 32nd and Tejon in Lower Highland. This new development will provide 106 homes for people looking to live in a walkable, transit-friendly neighborhood. Bus stops right at the corner offer access to both the 32 and the 44 routes with a straight shot into downtown.

Since our last update in February, the five-story structure has topped off and soon the building’s brick facade will be installed. Alexan LoHi will add around 9,500 square feet of ground-floor retail/restaurant space to an area brimming with similar destinations.

Last weekend we stopped by and took a few photos, starting with these from the corner of 32nd and Tejon:

Here are two more, looking back at the corner from farther down the block:

    While I’m always glad to see increased housing opportunities, projects like this highlight the need to find and support architects that understand the architectural identity of these Denver neighborhoods.

      I don’t think it is simple as that. Take a look at the architect’s work on their website and you will find some very attractive, good quality work. The difference is neighborhood/district design guidelines. When those are in place, the result can be some very nice looking projects; when those are missing, it is hit or miss.

    Does anyone know what retail is planned? Also, has anyone else noted the sign for a new office building just a block down 32nd, believe the cross street is Vallejo.
