The two-tower project at 18th and Glenarm is making progress. With demolition on the horizon, Shelby’s closed its doors on June 23. According to BusinessDen, Amacon, the project’s developer, is anticipating breaking ground on the project by either the end of this year or the start of next.
Even though construction is still a few months out, here are some recent photos of the project site—currently seven percent building and ninety-three percent parking lot.
Let’s take one last look at Shelby’s before it is demolished. While some feel nostalgic about this building leaving the city for good, this new project will ultimately be better for further connecting neighborhoods, and activating the streets in this desolate area of Downtown Denver.
These 38- and 32-story towers will have an incredibly positive impact on downtown. In addition, the towers will add 477 for-sale condo units to the Downtown Denver market which, as we all know, are desperately needed. Hopefully this project kicks off by the new year!
