Denver construction update: September

September 4, 2015 2

It is now September and time to take a look at the construction taking place in Denver. Some of the construction projects in Denver are progressing very quickly and it is wild to see how fast these construction crews are assembling these Denver developments.

The first project we will take a look at is the Speer Boulevard Apartments which is located at Speer and 6th Avenue. Gables Residential is developing this project.

Below are a couple photos of the 1144 Fifteenth Street arguably Denver’s most exciting project currently under construction. This skyscraper is being developed by Hines and will rise to 40 floors. This first picture was snapped from the intersection of 15th Street and Arapahoe Street. The second photo was captured from the temporary pedestrian sidewalk on the Lawrence Street side of the project.

Next is the 34-story Confluence luxury apartment project that began construction this past winter. The Confluence will rise at 15th Street and Little Raven. Below grade work is currently taking place. Work has begun on the elevator core, so it is likely that components of this project will rise above street level in the coming weeks.

LoDo grocery The downtown King Soopers opened a couple weeks back at 20th and Chestnut Place. This downtown King Soopers is already very popular as I saw many shoppers going in and out of King Soopers. Lloyd King was the founder of King Soopers and my grandma served as his secretary in the 1950s.

Over in LoDo we find the mixed-use Z Block project is under construction on the block of 18th, 19th, Wazee and Blake Street. Z Block will include office and hotel components.

    I used to be able to toggle through all the pictures in the popup window by pressing the right and left arrow keys. It was fun. Did something happen to that functionality, or is my computer just acting funny? (No biggie; just curious.)
