Construction Updates

RiNo and Five Points construction update

May 26, 2015 3

Mother nature provided just enough of a gap between rain showers to allow me to sneak out to Denver’s Five Points and River North (RiNo) neighborhoods to snap some photos of the constructions projects taking shape.

2300 Welton

Pictured above is the 2300 Welton project that just began construction. The development will include 223 residential units. This project was designed by Denver-based Humphries Poli Architects.

The Wheatley

Also under construction in Denver’s Five Points is The Wheatley at 25th Street and Welton. This development will include 14 for-sale town homes, 82 apartments and space for ground floor retail. This site was the location of the Phillis Wheatley Young Woman’s Christian Association which operated from 1916-1964. Phillis Wheatley was the first published African-American woman and first published African-American poet.

Larimer Row

Pictured above is the Larimer Row townhome project in Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood. This project is taking shape 34th and Larimer. Once fully completed will include 28 townhomes.

Factory Flats

Factory Flats broke ground this month and is a for-sale condo development. It will include space for ground floor retail. This project is located at 3198 Blake Street. Factory Flats is targeting LEED and ENERGY STAR certifications and each unit will be solar-powered.

Backyard on Blake

Pictured above is the Backyard on Blake development. This project includes the adaptive reuse of an existing brick structure and new construction to create a development that will feature, office, retail and residential components.

Hartley Flats

Pictured above is the Hartley Flats project that is nearing completion at 27th and Walnut Street. This project will house one and two bedroom apartment units.

31st and Brighton Boulevard

Above is the construction site of a mixed-use development on Brighton Boulevard that stretches between 31st Street and 35 Street. Featured in this development will be condominiums and retail space.

The Crossing at Denargo Market

Above is The Crossing at Denargo Market apartments located at 2525 Wewatta Way currently under construction at the confluence of Denver’s Ballpark and RiNo neighborhoods. This development includes 321 apartment units in a 5 story building, wrapped around a 6 level parking structure.

Freight Residences

Pictured above construction continues on the Freight Residences located at TAXI. 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. Zeppelin Development is building this 48-unit project.

    Cool! I’m so excited for all this crap! But there’s a problem — whenever I walk around Five Points or “RiNo” I feel like I’m being haunted by ghosts of displaced poor people. What can the city do about that?!?! Otherwise, super cool!!
