“The Coloradan is the final piece of the Union Station puzzle – the last building to go vertical in the area surrounding the train platform and canopy and the only opportunity to own a piece of this newly iconic neighborhood,” said Chris Frampton, managing partner of East West Partners. “At The Coloradan, the City of Denver will really be the primary amenity as residents will literally be in the heart of everything when they step out the front door.”

The Coloradan’s 334 condominium residences will be comprised of:

  • 33 Inclusionary Housing Ordinance (IHO) residences with pricing set by the affordability requirements estimated to be in the mid to high $200Ks
  • 294 Studios, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom residences ranging from the high $200Ks to $1.3M;
  • 7 19th Floor Penthouse residences ranging from $1.6M to $3.0M.

Approximately 19,000 square feet of ground floor retail will be constructed at the The Coloradan. Amenities include a rooftop pool deck and club room, residents’ lobby, fitness room and a residents’ garden as well as a 447-space parking garage.

“As Coloradans ourselves, we know there is something truly unique about this city and we designed this project to celebrate everything we love about living downtown,” said Frampton. “From the location to the mountain views to the exceptional attention to the little details that matter, The Coloradan will embody the Colorado experience.  Our mission is to create a vibrant, fun, conscientious place to live that connects residents to their community and the future of Colorado in an authentically Denver way.”

The Coloradan is being constructed by GE Johnson Construction Company and project management services for the project are being provided by BuildMark.  The project architect is GBD based in Portland, Oregon.  Urban Legend Retail and The F+B Group will be curating and marketing the retail space.
