Update on Top 2015 New Construction Projects in Denver
With so many new construction projects going on in the metro Denver area recently, it hasn’t been easy to keep pace. In 2014, we saw amazing developments all over the city, with the new Union Station probably being the biggest achievement of them all. Here’s a quick recap of still ongoing projects that we think have the chance to shape some of Denver’s best neighborhoods in 2015 and beyond.
The projects surrounding Union Station are still providing us with exciting news. Recently it was announced that there will be a 56,000 SF flagship Whole Foods grocery store built on the ground floor level of a planned 10-story structure at 17th and Wewatta. Ground will be broken in 2015.
The Triangle Building, located at 16th and Wewatta, is another development about to change the skyline in LoDo. Construction is already well underway. The building’s stunning glass facade is already going up.
Invent Development Partners, a Telluride-based company, will be developing 14 new townhomes in a mixed-use project in one of Denver’s hottest neighborhoods in 2015. We already told you about how Industry Denver was going to do wonderful things for RiNo. It’s already starting to happen.
The Alexan, to be located on Logan Street between East 19th and East 20th, is going to be an amazing addition to the Uptown neighborhood. This 12-story, 372 apartment unit complex is replacing a half block of ugly parking lot space. With other nearby projects like One City Block, Tower on the Park, Uptown Square, Grant Park, and Uptown Apartments, this is clearly a part of town that’s on the rise.
Things are looking up for East Colfax Avenue. It’s going to take a lot of work, but it looks like the city and some neighborhood leaders are ready to roll up their sleeves. Recently, the Denver Office of Economic Development awarded a $150,000 grant to the newly created Fax-Mayfair Business Improvement District. The grant will go toward start-up costs and the development of a master plan to redevelop parts of the district.
Excavation has begun on new residential space in Five Points. The project includes 14 townhomes and 82 apartment units. The site is located along Welton Street, with the townhomes sitting toward 24th Street and the apartments at the intersection of Welton and 25th.
There is a lot happening in Cherry Creek right now. In 2014, there were as many as seven tower cranes spotted in just this one neighborhood. That’s a lot of construction.
The new office building at 100 Saint Paul is one of the biggest ongoing projects. It is a 149,000 SF structure located at Saint Paul and East First Avenue. In 2014, this development went from a hole in the ground to a rapidly climbing steel structure. It’s already at five stories, and it will be up to eight stories before they are done.
