Market Station Update #6

The Market Station project site is buzzing with activity as construction is in full swing for this massive development. With excavation complete, the first columns for the underground levels are starting to go up. In the first few updates, we featured the conceptual renderings for this project as it went through design review, but we never had a full look at what Market Station is truly going to look like. Recently, Continuum Partners, the developers of Market Station, released this awesome flyover video of the project. This video goes around every corner of the block and through the activated alley.

Back in April, we mentioned that a new tower crane was erected at Market Station, so lets start out by taking a closer look at the tower crane at the project site.

The site was very busy over the weekend with multiple concrete pours taking place around the project. In addition to the concrete pumps on the ground, the tower crane was also in use lifting and holding buckets of concrete to pour the underground columns.

Market Station is such an exciting project as it fills in one of the largest gaps along the 16th Street Mall. We will swing back around once the project goes vertical above the street level.

    This might be one of the best looking developments in Denver I’ve seen. I’m trying to find an objective problem with it, but so far this looks great. 82K sq. ft of retail, 95K sq. ft. of offices, 225 residences, and only 320 parking spots, which are mechanical stack, meaning they take up less space.

    Admittedly, the residences will be luxury and un-affordable to most. But the reality of real mixed use that means activation morning, noon, and night along with housing and a small, reasonable (comparatively speaking) number of parking spaces all adds up to a pretty good looking development.

    That has to be the slickest flyover simulation video I’ve ever seen. Nice work!

    Definitely a nice development. That said, I’ll complain (gently) about lack of open space/greenery. The old plaza was always a nice oasis/place to hang out/eat lunch/people watch in that part of town.

      I will agree about the lack of public/open space in that part of town, but this location was right next to the 16th Street Mall which is essentially one long public space. It would be better to spread those spaces around the downtown area and not have them all consolidated in one area. Hopefully, the transformation of 21st Street will proceed so that there will be some public space in that part of downtown.

    The video presentation was excellent! If they put that kind of effort into a video, it really bodes well for the final product, which looks excellent. I was surprised to see cars loading into and exiting the valet garage from the left.
