Zeppelin Development’s 48-unit apartment project Freight Residences is currently under construction in Denver’s River North neighborhood (RiNo). This project is part of a larger mixed-use development by Zeppelin known as TAXI that includes office and retail components as well.
Unlike most of Denver’s current apartment projects under construction, Freight Residences is designed to attract young families. The lobby of the building will serve as a children’s art area. Freight Residences will have a lawn adjacent to the building where children will be able to play within view of their parent’s residence. Native plants have been incorporated into the landscaping and will be irrigated with reclaimed storm water.
“We are comfortable being in a niche that welcomes young families. There are no other projects like this going up near downtown. There is a market out there for developments like this and we know there are people with young children that still want to be close to downtown and are not ready to make the move to the suburbs,” said Zeppelin Development project manager Chris Woldum.
Residents will have access to TAXI’s amenities that include a pool and fitness center and TAXI’s early childhood-education center. Freight Residences represents one of seven buildings that comprise the TAXI development.
Units will be available in 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms and the second and third bedroom can serve as a nursery or office. Garage doors will be available in selected units that will allow fresh air and light to enter the apartments. Freight Residences is expected to be completed in September. The architect of record for this structure is Dynia Architects of Jackson, WY.
Zeppelin Development also developed The Source, a market that features artisan food vendors which is also located in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood. The Source is housed in a building that was constructed in the 1880s and was originally home to a foundry.
