1776 Curtis, a 29-story mixed-use development is planned to break ground in downtown Denver and begin construction this December.

Ground-floor retail space will be incorporated in 1776 Curtis. The project will have a total of 16,965 square-feet of retail space.

Structured parking will be included and will feature a total of 535 parking spaces.

Construction of 1776 Curtis is slated to take 25 months, which puts this downtown Denver construction project on target for a 2018 1st quarter opening.

The residential side will be constructed using concrete with a precast skin.

Amenities will be featured on the 8th level of the residential portion and will include a pool, two spas, an outdoor common space with fire places and grills. A fitness room and a dedicated space for dogs will also be showcased.

1776 Curtis will join the 26-story SkyHouse Denver project that is taking shape at 18th and Curtis, as the second high-rise residential project under construction in downtown Denver.

    HI Ryan, This will be a great project for downtown Denver.

    You edited out the portion about the office portion. Is this still happening? I was thinking since it will take less time for construction they are marketing it now, with potential to increase the height if they get an anchor tenant? I really loved the original office proposal from a few years ago.

  • Nicholas says:

    I am very excited about this one. I am surprised that there isn’t anything planned yet for the large vacant dirt lot on Welton and 17th that has been sitting unused for years. That is another spot where i would love to see some development.

  • Dave Barnes says:

    Sadly this demonstrates yet another attack on commuters who want to drive to work and park near their office.

  • Ryan K says:

    Great news! But how much does all this parking drive up the cost of the project, and therefore rents for the units?
