18th & Glenarm: Above the Podium
DenverInfill Blog
by Ryan Dravitz
2w ago
When we last visited 18th and Glenarm, vertical work was just beginning. Fast-forward a few months, and a lot of activity has taken place on the project site. A second tower crane has been erected, and the project’s concrete structure has now risen above the podium levels. Since the point tower form is still pretty uncommon in Denver, it was curious to see how the tower configuration, with the accompanying podium, would pan out. When looking at the project from 19th Avenue, the twin-tower structure appears as one project. The shorter 32-story tower in the foreground below will even ..read more

Outside of River North, the Golden Triangle is another significant hotspot for development, with projects in all phases of the development process. Bannock Street, in particular, has five new projects, making it a dense urban spine through the neighborhood.

First Look: Greyhound Redevelopment
DenverInfill Blog
by Andy Cushen
2M ago
As the bulk of visible construction for 1900 Lawrence begins to wrap up, downtown attention turns to the vacant lot next to Denver’s newest office tower. We’ve been waiting for some time for quality renderings of this two-tower project: the tease on Golub and Company’s website didn’t quite satisfy, and as we’ll see, there are major refinements to the site that are intelligible with more submittals to the city. At the beginning of February, the developers submitted a new Site Development Plan submittal and an Urban Design packet for the project, answering some questions about the future of th ..read more

2M ago
While we are busy working on a Golden Triangle roundup, there is one project we will be visiting in detail before the roundup. The proposed project at West 11th Avenue and Cherokee Street aims to preserve one of the best brick retail buildings in the Golden Triangle while adding a significant amount of infill at this corner. After two rounds of design review, this project has its final review on February 13, with the recommendation to move forward. Furthermore, the first record of a building permit was filed with the city on January 24. Lastly, the site behind Cherokee Row, the single-story ..read more

Demolition Underway at 700 Lincoln

Staying along the Broadway / Lincoln corridor, another project is gearing up for construction: 700 Lincoln. The site at East 7th Avenue and Lincoln Street formally featured a single-story retail building and accompanying surface parking lot. Just over a year ago, we mentioned in our Capitol Hill Roundup that 700 Lincoln was given the green light to move forward by the Downtown Design Advisory Board as the former retail building closed its doors. Recently, crews started demolition at the project site, which is a hopeful sign that this project is progressing. The construction permits ..read more

AMLI Golden Triangle – Finally Underway

We reported over a year ago that work had begun at the AMLI Golden Triangle site at 8th Avenue and Broadway. Since that post, the site has sat quietly for most of 2023. As work progressed on the permitting side, a new contractor change was eventually submitted to the city, and work has finally begun on the site. As of this post, the site has been leveled off, with heavy machinery, including drills for foundation work, that are new to the construction site. In addition to the work on the site, the fences have been pushed out, with the new contractor, Swinerton, identified around the parameter ..read more

Populus: The Urban Tree Grows

While the seasons change and the trees go bare, a new tree-medium is on the rise in Downtown Denver. While taking a walk on this brisk evening, something appeared in the corner of my eye and stopped me in my tracks. Populus, boasting the facade of an aspen tree in its renderings, is finally starting to show the first elements of the tree-like facade. The highly anticipated facade on Populus is beginning to rise on the corner of West Colfax Avenue and Court Place. Judging by how the panels are fabricated and the glass already in place, the final facade elements should go up fairly quickl ..read more

Evans Station Roundup OCT 2023
DenverInfill Blog
by Andy Cushen
5M ago
The last eight months near Evans Station have found both of the block-long developments begin leasing, with residents moving in. As we mentioned in our first look at the Evans Station area, the Washington Park view plane caps development at 110 feet, which constrains the proposed and under-construction housing to, functionally, less than 8 stories. But it’s not simply new housing being planned or constructed in the neighborhood; in an effort to connect the Overland neighborhood with the South Broadway commercial corridor, the city asked for bond money to construct a pedestrian and bike bridg ..read more

Construction is busy between 9th and 10th Avenue along Bannock Street. With 990 Bannock finishing up 955 Bannock going vertical, another large project recently broke ground, with a new tower crane towering above the already busy project site. Parq II, the counterpart to Parq 0n Speer, has been in the sights for a few years and is finally coming to a reality. Developed by Greystar, Parq II will rise 17 stories and provide 310 apartment homes.
