The historic El Jebel Shrine, located on the Willis Case Golf Course in Denver’s Berkeley Neighborhood at 4625 W 50th Ave, is being redeveloped into 25 high-end condominiums by Clear Creek Homes, the for-sale brand of Colorado-based Confluence Builders. Construction is underway on the $12 million project, which is scheduled for completion in March 2017.

“This is a grand building, with great ‘bones’ built with a very high level of craftsmanship. It will provide a unique and special place for people to call home,” said Tim Walsh, founder of Confluence Builders, which has completed 21 residential multi-family projects in the Denver Metro Area since 2010 with over 2,100 total units, and has five other projects planned or currently under development.

Shrine Preservation Partners, also of Colorado, is partnering on the redevelopment, which will preserve and restore the exterior of the classic 55,000 square foot building. Denver-based Craine Architecture is serving as the architectural firm for the project.

“Craine Architecture and the developer have been working closely with Barbara Stocklin-Steely and Denver’s Landmark Staff to sensitively design a project that aligns with the PUD (planned unit development) standards and limitations regarding Preservation & Exterior Alteration.  These standards put a particular emphasis on maintaining and preserving the southern portion of the building,” explains Dan Craine founder of Craine Architecture.

The El Jebel Shrine was designed by William N. Bowman and was constructed in 1930.

    Love this old building, and the location. I am glad to hear there will be some adherence to the historic value of the site. I wish they were a little more affordable for seniors like me, but look forward to hearing more about this project. There is a great need for condos in the Denver area.
