Let’s check in on another project that will be providing homeless transition and affordable housing to Downtown Denver. The 101-unit, Renaissance Downtown Lofts, located at Broadway and Stout Street, have made significant progress as you would expect since our last update in January.
The main structure has been topped out for some time and the facade is also nearing completion. In the first photo below, you can see a protruding concrete podium, which will house the ramps for the 29 vehicle spaces and feature a residential deck on top. The historic Carson Press building is still intact and looks just as it did when construction commenced. The alley side of the project has no notable features, but as development keeps on trekking throughout Downtown Denver, this will never be a permanent sight from the street.
The Renaissance Downtown Lofts are expected to open in the next few months. Not only does this provide the much-needed housing for Denver’s homeless, it also enlivens a block that has suffered from the surface parking lot sickness we like to call parkinglotitis.
