Denver townhome construction

Intersection of 17th Avenue and King Street where the corners have new/under construction townhome projects.

At the confluence of Denver’s Sloan’s Lake and West Colfax neighborhoods is a multitude of town home projects currently under construction. The heart of this construction is taking place along 17th Avenue between the western edge of Sloan’s Lake and Federal Boulevard.

Many of the original homes, most of which were single family homes and duplexes have been demolished to make way for the new developments.

While strolling in this part of Denver during the day one will hear the ubiquitous sounds of nail guns and hammers.

These townhomes are selling in the range of $300 a square foot. The common layout for these residences under construction in this park of Denver is a first floor garage, a second floor kitchen and living area, a third floor with a couple of bedrooms, and a rooftop deck designed to accommodate a hot tub and a gas fire place.

“There are several reasons why Sloan’s Lake is attractive to developers. The zoning in the area is conducive to townhome development, the land is still priced competitively enough that townhome projects can be profitable and obviously the demand for housing is growing in that area due to the proximity to downtown, the Lake and the amenities it provides, and the new St Anthony’s redevelopment which will provide the retail component,” explains Deviree Vallejo, broker Kentwood City Properties.

Construction continues at the former site of St. Anthony’s Hospital just south of Denver’s Sloan’s Lake. This 7-block $300 million development is titled SLOANS. St. Anthony’s hospital was demolished to make room for new ground-up construction. Residential, office, and retail components are under construction and planned for the site.

Below is a look at the Julian Street Townhomes under construction at 1623 Julian Street. This development features 10 units. Pricing on these homes begins at $489,000.

    Is it just me or do all of these new townhome designs (perhaps with the exception of “Sloan’s Row) have a conspicuous lack of windows? I can’t imagine that any of these units would get much light, but would be curious to hear what others think. Is this just the design that’s in vogue right now, or do these silly portholes and skinny windows there for a reason?

    Hi Russell, you make a good observation. One thing I have noticed on the townhome projects I have covered, is they don’t have skylights since the rooftops on most of these are serving as decks and space for a hot tub and a grill.
