Modera Capitol Hill Update #2

Since our update in September, Modera Capitol Hill has gone from a hole in the ground to now rising above the street level. This project will have a significant impact in Capitol Hill as it will rise a total of eight-stories and provide 197 apartment homes. For a rendering refresher, head on over to our announcement post.

The concrete supports for the first floor are currently being poured, with work beginning on the second floor towards the south end of the project.

This eight-story building will have a very positive impact along Grant Street, and will contribute to a nice street wall of historic and modern buildings.

Modera Capitol Hill makes much better use of the land it sits on by taking up a surface parking lot and replacing a small building underutilized for the neighborhood.

    Any idea what is being built over on the north side of Speer near the MyBlock Wash Park?

    I hope another Boston Market!

    Do you mean the south side of Speer, at Grant? Another Modera building will be built on the newly vacated Visiting Nurse Association:

    Great! I like how Capitol Hill’s empty parking lots are getting filled up and densifying. I know this used to be the site of the Denver Public Schools
    Admin. My opinion is this is an improvement.

      Totally agree much better. Wish it had retail given a lack in the neighborhood. This site was actually the Colorado Association of School Boards, the DPS site is further south on grant and their parking lot would make for another great site!

      Grant could totally use a road diet though!

        There is proposed 5 story, 201 unit apartment project on that site, not sure of the current status.
