The above photo looks down Chestnut Place towards the southwest. The structure that sits on the righthand side of the photo was utilized as self storage building and is slated for demolition to make way for the planned 12-story Hilton Garden Inn. The structure on the lefthand side of the photo is northeast side of the Elan Union Station apartment project where the new King Soopers will be located. The 13-story building in the middle of the picture is the Cadence Union Station apartments. The crane is with the 1601 Wewatta office project that recently topped off at 10-stories.

The Confluence luxury apartments March 2015.

The Confluence, a 34-story luxury apartment building is under construction and if you are wondering where the name for this development came from, it is because this tower will rise adjacent to the confluence of the Platte River and Cherry Creek. This project will feature underground parking. Excavation work is underway, but a lot of work will take place before the above grade work begins.

Triangle Building March 2015.

The open space between the Triangle building and the Environmental Protection Agency building (pictured on the righthand side of the photo) is where a cycling station will be located. Currently construction materials are located in the space. This space is actually the right of way for Wewatta Street. A deal was made between the City of Denver and the Triangle Building’s developer East West Partners where underground parking for the building would be constructed underneath the Wewatta Street right of way as long as the developer placed a bike station on top of it. This was important because of the unusual triangular shape of the property. Triangular lots do not lend themselves to being ideal for underground parking structures. Liberty Global recently announced it will be leasing the top three floors of the Triangle Building.
