Since our last update, The Coloradan has reached many milestones. This month, the 334-unit condo building topped off at 19-stories and the highly anticipated terracotta facade is starting to make an appearance.
Let’s start by looking at The Coloradan along Wewatta Street. This project completes the east side of Wewatta and takes up the last open parcel adjacent to Denver Union Station. In the second photo, you can catch a glimpse of the terracotta facade.
The Coloradan also has a significant impact from under the commuter rail canopy. With all adjacent blocks now completely developed, the commuter rail station has an incredible urban feel.
Now let’s take a look at the brilliant terracotta facade that will be used for the entire building. The “Alpenglow” terracotta is a deep purple which is not only unique to Union Station but all of Downtown Denver.
The Coloradan nicely contributes to the Union Station neighborhood skyline. Here is a panorama showing the neighborhood from Lower Downtown.
The Coloradan is expected to open late this year. According to East West Partners, units are selling fast with 215 out of 334 units already sold. This shows that there is a solid demand for condos in the Downtown Denver area and we can only hope more condos can get underway soon.
