Fort Collins-based Drahota – A Bryan Construction company has announced that construction has begun on a mixed-use development at 35th and Larimer in Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood.
This development will include 66 residential units, and space for office and retail use. This project joins several other developments currently under construction in RiNo including the Factory Flats and the Alloy on Lawrence projects. The Source Hotel project was also announced this spring and is planned to take shape adjacent to The Source market on the 3300 block of Brighton Boulevard.
Drahota is the general contractor and was awarded a $9.5 million contract to build the 35th and Larimer project. Existing structures on the property are being demolished to make room for this development.
“The flourishing arts community in the RiNo district has been conscientious about acknowledging the area’s industrial roots, even as it’s been transitioning to a cultural center,” said Terry Drahota, President. “This project respects that notion and we will be offering living and working space to a growing population.”
Currently under construction four blocks from the site of the 35th and Larimer project is a RTD commuter rail station that will open at 38th and Blake. Once completed in 2016 this station will serve RTD’s East Line that will provide service to Denver International Airport with commuter trains that will reach a top speed of 79 mph.
Residential units will be available in 1, 2, and micro apartment options. The ground floor will feature five spaces that can be used for either office, restaurant, or retail use.
