Modera Capitol Hill Update #1

Modera Capitol Hill is an eight-story development by Mill Creek Residential that will provide 197 new rental homes in Capitol Hill, one of Denver’s most walkable urban districts. Construction began a few months ago, so let’s see how things are coming along.

The project is currently in the “hole in the ground” stage as shoring walls for the two underground parking levels are going in. The general contractor is Shaw Construction. Here are two views from the alley looking across the site toward Grant Street:

Here’s a big panorama showing the entire site:

We have four new renderings of Modera Capitol Hill to share with you, courtesy of Davis Partnership Architects. The first rendering is looking south down Grant Street and the second rendering shows the alley side of the project looking west:

The first of these nighttime views is looking northeast from the corner of Grant and 12th Avenue, while the second gives us an overhead perspective of the south and alley sides looking northwest.

Modera Capitol Hill is scheduled for completion in early 2019.

    Now if we could do something about Grant being a traffic sewer for downtown commuters we’ll be in good shape.

      I literally decided to ask if there are any plans on converting Grant to a two-way with bike lanes while reading this post. It’s bizarre how wide it is, did it used to be two way with center turn lanes? Buildings along it are too old for it to have been a wide one-way street from the set out.

    Nice project, and good to see new construction and residential density in Capitol Hill. What’s the latest on the apartment project on the west side of 9th & Grant?
