Davis Partnership Architects has announced that construction is now underway at the 17W site in Denver’s Union Station neighborhood. This mixed-use project will include 600 residential rental units housed in three 13-story towers and space for ground floor retail. Davis Partnership Architects has joined with Holland Partner Group to design and develop this structure.

A Whole Foods grocery store will anchor the 60,000 feet of available retail space at 17W. Residential units will be offered in studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments. Penthouse residences will be available on the upper two floors of the towers and will range in size from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet.

17W will take up the entire block bordered by 17th Street, Wewatta Street, 18th Street and Chestnut Place. The structure will rise one block away from Denver’s transit hub Union Station.

“The three towers embrace an outdoor courtyard peppered with lush landscaping, gathering spaces, whirlpools and a swimming pool. Adjacent to the courtyard, a large interior amenity zone will house fitness spaces, community spaces, kitchens and bars, conference rooms and a business center, along with a myriad of large and small lounges. Inviting residents to spend time enjoying their community and getting to know their neighbors,” states Davis Partnership Architects.

The Whole Foods will be located on the ground floor and will stretch along the entire 17th Street side of 17W. “The store is designed in a non-standard way, opening up to the street across much of its frontage and thereby allowing a more transparent, accessible and interactive pedestrian experience, “explains Davis Partnership Architects.

Space for restaurants and dry goods retailers is available as well. Access for loading and services will be hidden from view of  residents and neighbors and are located internally. Parking will be available below and above and is slated to be available  for residents and shoppers alike. 17W is expected to be completed in late 2017.
