Construction is rolling along at the 17th and Pearl Apartments development, which will be called INDE Uptown upon its completion, according to the Southern Land Company’s webpage on the project. We last stopped by in March when excavation was underway and in April when the tower cranes went up. As our new photos show, the underground parking levels are complete and the 10-story project is now up to the ground floor.
INDE Uptown will provide 316 apartment homes in Denver’s popular Uptown neighborhood located just a few minutes’ walk from Downtown proper. This project also includes a bit of historic preservation and adaptive reuse, as the historic building at the corner of East 17th Avenue and Pearl will be preserved in full and integrated into the project as a restaurant, while the facade of its smaller neighbor will be incorporated into the new construction as commercial space as well.
Let’s start our photo tour on 17th Avenue and work our way down Pearl to 16th Avenue. First up we have the historic corner building and its facade-only neighbor:
Rounding the corner onto Pearl Street, new construction adjacent to the historic structure is up to the ground floor:
Nice Downtown skyline views will be available for homes on the alley (west) side of the development:
INDE Uptown will step down to six stories in height at East 16th Avenue, across the street from its stately neighbor, the historic Temple Emanuel (now Denver Community Church) building:
Completing our tour around the project, these last two images show the new construction along 16th Avenue:
But wait… there’s more! We’ve not yet had a good color rendering of this project, except now we do. This new image, courtesy of Southern Land Company and Shears Adkins Rockmore Architects, shows the project will rely heavily on brick as the primary facade material and will also step down in height adjacent to the historic properties along 17th:
We’ll stop for our next update in a few months after the building has topped off.
